Just to clarify, I am not a "full time" freelancer... confusing, eh? I have an 8 to 5 job from Monday to Friday and a month ago, I stumbled upon this website that hires online talents. I tried registering. I passed their "entrance examination" with a grade above average and completed my profile so that prospective employers will have an idea about what they will get themselves into if they hire me. To make my profile irresistible to employers, I took several skills test which includes knowledge of the English language, word processing, customer service, human resources, and other skills that I thought I know. So far, so good.
What led me to freelancing is plainly an accident that I do not regret. It is something that I love to do that allows me to earn extra while I am at the comforts of my own home. It doesn't interfere with my daily activities and each time I get a new job, it feels like being hired for the first time. Although I am just a newbie in this field, the best advice that I can give you is that you should be professional, understand that your would be employer has his boss too who expects things to be done right on time. Personally, this freelancing thing has taught me to manage my time wisely, to be more professional and to be attuned to the changing work needs.
Will I recommend this? Absolutely!
