Article

A freelancer most often offers his services himself - on specialized online resources, through newspaper ads or using word of mouth, that is, personal connections. Freelancing is especially common in areas such as journalism (and other forms of activity related to writing texts), law, computer programming, architecture, design in all its manifestations (advertising, web design, interior design, etc.), translation, photography and video filming, various kinds of expert and consulting activities, but freelancing is also very common in the construction industry. It is more profitable for contractors to hire workers for the season than to maintain a workforce.
