Want to start a career as a freelancer? If the on-going patterns are to be believed, freelancing in India will be the new work culture. According to Wikipedia, India positions as the 2nd largest freelance labor force. The freelance culture has gradually advanced into the Indian market due to its adaptable nature and way of life it offers. Since the outbreak of the global pandemic, the companies are looking for ways to reduce the number of full-time workers and evaluating 'alternate workforce model' with freelancers. In short, the new work culture is here to stay.
The time when freelancing was something that students and housewives would do to earn extra money is gone. The myth that people who do not get jobs opt for freelancing was long ago proved wrong when Wikipedia stated that by the end of 2020, 50% workers are expected to go freelance. Freelancing is a career in itself and is rapidly growing.
