With the arrival of new technologies, new forms of employment have seen the light and grown under the protection of ICT.
The telecommuting and co-working are perhaps the most related to the use of technology, but there is another method that has been widely favored by the digital era: the freelance work.
When thinking of a job, traditionally, this was associated with a particular company. The worker sought an offer from an acquaintance, applied for a job and after passing an interview process signed to contract to start working in it.
With the digital era this process has changed, since they do not necessarily have to go to the offices of companies to practice their profession, but they can carry out their work from home. In addition, they do not necessarily link to a single company, but opt for multi-employment and for having contracts or agreements for independent work with more than one company.
Although in some professions this type of work is impossible, there are more and more areas where it is the norm. Journalists, designers, photographers, advisors of all kinds, etc. In fact, more and more workers prefer this option when looking for a job.
