Freelance jobs have been all over the worldwide web for a few years now. People who need to earn for a living but prefer more flexibility find freelance jobs as a more viable option. Anyone can work as a freelancer as long as he has access to the internet and has skills to offer to the marketplace.
While it is relatively easy to land a freelance gig, there are still a lot of key points to consider before accepting freelance jobs.
Freelancers are not committed to exclusive service. A freelancer, defined by the word itself, is free to accept jobs from different companies as long as there is enough time to deliver each project without comprimising quality.
However, some companies prefer that you only work for their project. It is important to clarify all project terms and conditions before saying yes to a client. Also, both parties should agree on the payment rate and schedule. Any fees, deductions or conditions should be laid out by both client and freelancer. In regards to performing the job, the freelancer should be confident and honest in representing his skills and experience. Any factor that might affect his performance should be communicated to the client.
