Many 9-to-5 office workers dream of a life where they can travel freely while still working and making money. Through a freelance gig website called Upwork, some savvy travelers are doing just that.
Work flexibility is a must when a worker wants freedom to travel, and freelancing is a way to provide that. If the worker doesn’t like a job, they can decline it and move on to the next job offer. The one big problem that many freelancers face is not having enough work or not knowing how to get more work.
Companies are no longer bound by the talent in their immediate area. With a pressing project deadline, companies can turn to websites like Upwork to post their projects and hire a talented freelancer by the end of the day.
The first industry to get freelancers en mass were journalists and writers who sold their work to magazines via snail mail. With the advent of the internet, more and more industries can accommodate workers who can login from all around the globe. Upwork was one of the pioneering freelance gig websites where companies could find reliable and talented freelancers for their projects.
Upwork has about 140 million users across 180 countries, with millions of jobs being posted daily. There is work for a variety of talents including writing, marketing, social media, app development, web design, SEO (search engine optimization), editing, graphic design, and even virtual assistant tasks.
Freelancers can find the best jobs on Upwork by creating a detailed profile with a biography, relevant work experience, degrees, a headshot, and even works from a portfolio. After the account is verified, the freelancer can get working and making money. However, it is important for freelancers to make the highest quality work for companies to gain and maintain a high rating, which will in turn lead to more work.
Upwork is a revolutionary site where freelancers can remove themselves from the 9-to-5 rat race and work on projects that interest them while maintaining job flexibility.
