The workflow depends largely on the amount of workload one is willing to take. Jobs can be in any size, like number of hours, on a per day or per project basis as agreed upon by the two partied involved.

Freelancing has gained popularity in India also and this is mainly to the mushrooming of the IT industry. It has increased the awareness of freelancing and a lot of people mainly housewives, mothers who wish to juggle a career and personal life, retired servicemen and students are opting to get into freelancing. In fact it has opened a lot of rewarding career choices for those who prior to this had no options but to sit at home. For example a retired person can become a consultant, a career counselor, a mentor or even freelance in the previous job depending on the organization.

    • Time saved: A lot time is saved by reducing the need to travel and attend various meetings that are part of a regular job
    • Creativity: Freelancing allows an individual to express oneself creatively and make use of their creativity and not be stuck to a monotonous job
  • Disadvantages
    • Freelancers miss out on working in a team and the working environment
    • They do not have benefits of working in an organization like insurance, provident fund etc.
    • One should be more responsible and accountable for one's job and be more self motivated
    • Work is not steady
