Freelancer – Independent Flexible Career

Freelance – A writer or artist who sells services to different employers without a long-term contract with any of them. Work independently and on temporary contracts rather than for a long-term employer.

Freelancers: Travelers, writers, photographers, designers, dancers, model coordinators, artists of all sorts, musicians, voice over artists, are just some of the freelancers already working the various industries. The difference between a freelancer and an organisation is that the freelancer is a one-man or woman business and production team. Many individuals take up freelance for the extra money whereas there are those who depend solely on their freelance earnings. A good way to start is by trying some freelance in your free time or time outside work.

  1. Hi,

    I came across your profile while working on Google.
    I introduce myself as a founder of the newly formed company i am about to float within a month or so, I am having an existing in house software development team and may be we shall be expanding it in near future.

    As if of now we have some urgent requirement over PHP. You can work on a freelancing basis, wherein the bid amount and duration for the job shall be finalised by you. Since most of my team members are too occupied, hence this is first time we are looking forward towards outsourcing the work.

    Please revert back to this mail, in case you feel you could handle some challenging and big task. And when i say CHALLENGING, i mean it. The work will be real big and good. As far as money is concerned, you are free to ask whatever you feel the project shall be worthy of and we will not negotiate a nickel dime further.

    I look forward to your reply, so as to share some good projects with you ASAP. May be will end up being in the same company.

    Regards,
    Sushant
