A freelancer is a self-employed individual who offers their services to clients on a project-by-project basis, rather than working as an employee for a single company. Freelancers are typically hired by businesses, organizations, or individuals to complete a specific task or project, which may range from writing and design work to software development, accounting, or consulting.
Freelancers are responsible for finding their own clients, setting their own rates and schedules, and managing their own workflow. They may work remotely or on-site, depending on the requirements of the project and the preferences of the client.
Freelancing can offer a great deal of flexibility and autonomy, but it also requires a certain level of self-discipline and business savvy to succeed. Many freelancers choose to specialize in a particular area of expertise and build a reputation as a reliable and skilled professional in their field.
