With the Argentina economy in a tailspin, we’ve seen the second largest one day stock drop combined with a 25% collapse of the Argentinian peso. So where will the good jobs be for the future of Argentina? The unemployment rate was 9.48% in 2018, and that was before the big currency and stock market crash. To make matter worse, the GDP per capita is only $14,401.97.
Many skilled Canadian professionals are finding news ways, utilizing online web services, to attain high levels of professional freedom combined with even higher earnings. David Rosenberg, a chief economist, was very bearish on the Canadian economy, putting odds of a recession at 80%, as slowing global growth swamps any future financial stimulus.
Today the freelance market for skilled workers is out performing 70% of traditional jobs according to CNBC. By 2020, over 40% of the US workforce will be freelancing. The fast growth of the freelance market is driven by the Human Cloud. We believe the fastest growth in the Human Could is the gig market.
To attain higher paying freelance gigs you should focus on markets that are growing and require unique skills. Even if you are just a beginner posting freelance gigs, or want to find other opportunities and platforms to offer your high level of service, here is a short list of skills that are in high demand, that can easily be turned into outstanding freelance gigs:
Writers and journalist have possibly experienced the biggest single employment disruption since the Internet entered our lives. It has displaced the entire traditional paper publishing business as we know it. Newspapers, magazines, catalogues, yellow pages, the entire market is either gone or just a fraction of what it use to be.
Freelance business services are specialized services you can acquire through the internet. If you hire an attorney to create a will, use Uber, or hire a coder to fix your website, these are specialized business services. However, we are mainly referring to the unique specialized business services you can acquire over a freelance gig platform.
Here are a couple of true stories about how freelance online services have helped our many small businesses:
A freelance gig platform is a listing of gigs (jobs) for business services. The number of gigs on a platform can be unlimited. The world is moving to micro specialists– someone who is an expert in a small specialized or micro field. A gig is a specialized service, such as writing superior press releases, or a product launch specialist. If you’re a specialist in say hydroponics, WordPress, or cryptocurrency, it can be difficult for potential employers to find your services. Maybe you want to get onto a platform that supports business, that will help you access an industry with explosive growth? Being on a diversified gig platform, people can drill down and find more specific services that they need.
A Beginners Guideline for Starting Their own Freelance Gig Opportunities.
It just a simple fact, it is very hard for beginners to compete in established and entrenched markets. Often it is better for a younger, fast-growing talent to work with an equally young and fast growing platform, so you can say they cut their teeth together. And for the newer gig providers, this learning curve of online services is often more manageable.
A gig is a temporary and flexible job, on location or through the internet, hired as an independent contractor (often known as freelancers) for people or companies looking for specialized services instead of hiring full-time employees. Often one full-time employee can not handle the plethora of different skills needed. So, instead of having a full-time employee, you can (for example) have 4-5 gig contractors splitting the workload, with each specialist solving a specific task.
