The Internet, which is rapidly developing every day, has made it possible for people to earn money without leaving their homes. Now it is not necessary to go to work in the morning and “sit out” the prescribed hours - the same money can be received by working at home as a freelancer.
A freelancer is a remote employee who does not need to be constantly present in the office. He plans his working day on his own, he looks for orders and fulfills them. The first freelancers were journalists, translators, consultants, photographers, and artists. Today, the most popular freelancing professions are web designers, copywriters and programmers. In general, any specialist who has the opportunity to provide an employer with the results of his work using the Internet (for example, e-mail) can become a freelancer. A freelancer always plans his daily routine himself. At the same time, self-organization is important - the better a person manages his time, the more orders he will be able to fulfill, the quality of work will be higher. For some, this very moment is difficult, since many urgent matters immediately appear at home, friends come to visit, children interfere, as a result, the work remains unfulfilled. The peculiarity of the freelancer's work is also in the independent search for customers. This is both an advantage - the number of orders and employers on the Internet is practically unlimited, and a disadvantage - not everyone can find a job with decent pay. Newcomers to the world of freelancing often have to work for literally a penny. Only by gaining experience and connections can they raise prices for their work. Of particular note is the official position of freelancers. Very rarely they are on the staff of any organization, therefore they are legally considered unemployed. As a rule, contributions to the pension fund and taxes from royalties are not made by the employer, and remain on the conscience of the author himself. The only exceptions are large enterprises that make up an author's agreement or an agreement with a freelancer. In recent years, the IRS has become interested in the work of "free artists", but bringing freelancers to justice is more of a "show flogging" procedure than a rule.
