In the second quarter of this year, the time between the period of April to June , job openings in the freelance sector increased by up to 25% when compared to the first quarter of the year.
When last year’s second quarter is being compared to this second quarter, the posting of freelance jobs has increased to 41% i.e. six hundred and five thousand according to the some reports.
Covid-19 is expected to strengthen the gig economy and rise in freelance projects. Demand for freelance jobs is on the rise as organizations get increasingly used to the virtual workplace and remote working, and in some cases, cutting fixed employee costs post the Coronavirus outbreak.
What are your views on this? Will this rise keep on increasing until a cure is found or is it just a temporary rise?
