Most Freelancers work on a job-to-job basis, meaning that they take on a job for a business or private client, complete it and then move on to the next job. The work load can go from scratching out a pay one week to overload the next. This is typical for the beginner Freelancer.
For most Freelance workers, the work is not steady enough to rely upon as a fixed income. Although, if the Freelancer is hard-working and talented enough, a pretty substantial career can be made out of it. Without say, freelance work is a hard career to break into.
Many small businesses are now turning to Freelance workers to get their work done. Why are they now doing this? Again, the economy is one of the biggest pushers for the small business owners. Freelance workers can be hired for a one-time job, or as a steady worker, depending upon the employer’s needs.
Small businesses that need to hire out to Freelancers can, in many cases, offer the worker consecutive jobs. And a long-term working relationship can be beneficial to both sides. Companies get the work done without overhead and Freelancers can earn a steady pay check.
