Why you should start online freelancing

Job stability is increasingly fragile and more companies are investing in freelancers rather than full-time staff. It takes a certain kind of person to become a freelancer, and more people are turning towards flexible working as a way to fit around their busy lives and careers. Though some freelancing positions are advertised like ordinary jobs, some take place through network connections and many others happen over freelancer websites, such as The Flexie Bench. But is it for you?

Getting back into the industry

Often, freelancers have been out of the industry for a while. Whether someone has taken a professional break from their career, been recently let go or made redundant from their previous position, or has decided to take an alternate route to career success, they hold skills and expertise that are in high demand by companies all over the world. Freelance websites in particular can connect teams and individuals who are highly skilled and available to work, providing an online platform for them to have conversations about the work they want to do.
