Everyone knows that desk jobs are incredibly boring and draining. Being stuck in an isolated work cubicle, for 6 hours, who really wants that? Luckily, there is an emerging market for Freelance work, which not only allows you to be your own boss, but it also allows you to work on-the-go (providing that you have internet access). So, why exactly is freelance work on the rise?
With the increasing amount of technology available and access to internet from pretty much anywhere (except rural and country areas), it is incredibly easy for people to work outside of the office, which many would say is a great thing. I mean, who would choose working in a bland office over working outside in different areas (possibly even different countries!).
Freelance work, at the moment, is particularly significant in the journalism industry, which has gone through significant change in order to keep up with new technologies, bloggers and “citizen journalism”. Journalists are no longer obliged to work for one particular media outlets and can even just blog, which allows them to report things as they please.
Journalism, though, is just one of many industries that are associated with freelancers and you can bet that freelance work opportunities will only increase.
