Well based on my experience there are a ton about why freelancer was being my best option that I choice to switch my career as a employee from a certain company. Yes you read it right my first job was in a year of 2012 I started as employee in Webtek as position of web developer. This was my first experience building website yes I don’t know much with regards building any website yet but I can able to adopt, because I had a great knowledge in terms of any coding PHP, VB.net and etc. This help to survive this company, but yes well this was also my worst first job ever. I will share my experience currently working as web developer right but a lack of personnel that lead me to do outside of web developing I became a delivery man would deliver there fix laptop and CCTV oh I didn’t mention what is Webtek it was all about Computer Services and CCTV equipment. That was my worst experience had to remember I just wait to end my 6 months contract and going to find another job.
Okay my end contract with the first job had been settled and luckily after that I found my 2nd Job well yes I am also an employee in Quap Accent composed of 10 employee including me. This was great, because the team focus in web developing which no cctv or fixing laptop. This company had 3 boss so we are separated. My team are working with web developing this was my first experience using magento well what I say I can adopt easily and my boss amazed with my skills. Well there are worst part also in this company this 3 boss had been separated due to financial issue. Well I had been assigned to my 2 boss now I mention it, this 2 boss are married each other so no need to confused why they are not separated. They build there own company and called it Codemore. My Skill had been improving in web developing also I got award being Developer of the year, because of outstanding performance. But what I said there was no forever and then again financial issue they are need to cost cutting, because I had the highest salary among my team they decided to remove me that was the sad part.
Now what happened, yes this the journey that I became a freelancer, I had knowledge, skill and I know myself that I can do this. My luck doesn’t came out first try in onlinejob.ph I found 1 client from Singapore and my position there well obvious web developer using magento. I need to have good performance, because of this was my first job as freelancer and I am doing great. Then I tried to had another job luckily one of my friends freelancer also introduce me Tilden a company that working with wordpress maintenance and services. I tried to had two jobs and great I can handle it. Well as a freelancer I need to explore more well I successfully finish my project in 1 of my client in Singapore and need to fined another job. Then I found out upwork was best in handling freelancer but well this was not an easy step it hard to find a client here almost a months can’t find any client I almost give up but then my perseverance had been paid I found 1 from Australia and she was nice, because she help me improve my upwork profile. After how many years and you can see my upwork that it is now a Top Ratings and had a lot of good feedback this was because of hard work. What I can say, now I never send any proposal the clients are now inviting me instantly for an interview.
So what is freelancer good about with other companies that I work for, no financial issue as if you just need a multiple clients to have a competitive salary. Time management have your own time to manage. Last freedom if you want to work or not this is your own decision.
