Opportunities for freelancers in India?

By Shweta

Do you love your work but not the daily traffic you need to face while going for work? Do you feel relaxed when you get a work from home? Then there is an option for you to work from home permanently. There are people who are free birds by nature and cannot get stuck in a regular 9 to 5 job. A freelancing job gives them the opportunity to do the work they like, earn a livelihood and follow their other interests.


Women who were working professionals but now cannot go out because of family commitments are taking up the freelancing jobs. This keeps them in touch with the working world and makes them earn money at home. Even retired professionals are taking up freelancing jobs.

How to get freelancing jobs?

There are many companies who hire employees on contract basis on a different payroll than the regular payroll for permanent employees. Various education and writing companies have freelancing jobs for content writing and translators. They pay at a per word basis. These jobs can be availed through good networking skills.
