Modern technology is, as everybody knows, changing the face of the workplace. Not least, it has reinvented freelancing, using the Internet to create, market and manage businesses electronically. In the global village that the world has become, this can be done anytime, anywhere. E-lancing, as the new freelancing is termed, is a response to corporate downsizing and its concomitant increased unemployment, as well as to the fact that many people who were formerly stuck in dead-end jobs are now opting for the marketing of their professional skills on a freelance basis. A growing list of careers can be pursued on the Net, and not only the more obvious ones such as writing and design, for the online marketplace also has room for consultants of all kinds: contractors, typists, lawyers, medical practitioners, engineers, therapists and a whole host of others. There are websites which act as employment agencies or intermediaries, matching a client's project with individuals who will do the work. Most of these sites will not make a charge for allowing you to register and post your CV or portfolio online. They may, however, take a small commission for connecting you with a client. Another option is the talent auction, where a client posts details of a forthcoming project and freelancers bid for it against each other. In our high-tech modern world, geographical boundaries become increasingly irrelevant as telecommuting e-lancers fill cyberspace. It's the future and it works.
