Freelance Vs Full Time Employment

Choosing between freelance work and a full-time placement? Both come with their own pros and cons, and it really depends on your individual preferences and circumstances when it comes to determining which is the right fit for you.

On one hand, some people prefer the freedom and flexibility that freelance work offers – and have the right skills that enable them to work on such a basis. As a freelancer, you can choose your own hours and even location. It’s a great option especially if you have other commitments such as having to care for young children or elderly parents.

It’s also a great way to supplement your income and give you that little bit extra money you need to fund your passions. However, it may not be as reliable as a full-time job, and you are usually not entitled to the benefits of permanent employment, such as healthcare and paid leave.

On the other hand, full-time jobs come with more security and stability compared to freelance work. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you have a regular income coming in every month, and are somewhat insulated against uncertainty by a contract of employment that outlines your rights and responsibilities.

Career progression, access to resources, and opportunities for training are often cited as advantages of a full-time job, so if you’re looking to further your career, going this route may be best for you.

The best thing about the times that we live in now is that you can actually give both a chance at the same time. Why not try doing some freelance work alongside your full-time job to find out if it’s right for you? Discover great freelance opportunities by joining Gigple today.
