There has been a lot of talk about Freelancing and Outsourcing for some time now. Many people think this is an easy way to become rich overnight! Many people are being deceived by being attracted to these advertisements to earn money online. Everyone wants to make money quickly with less effort! So is Freelancing and Outsourcing fake? Do many people say that millions of dollars can earn possible? Many have gained home or car? No, these are true, and many have. However, it is not as easy as it may seem.
I will try to discuss Freelancing and Outsourcing in a few episodes. Today is the first episode. In today’s episode, we will try to discuss what freelancing and outsourcing are or how it works.
What is Freelancing?
Freelancing is an English word. Whose simple Bengali is “free profession”. Many of us have a misconception that “Freelancing can make money”. Freelancing is a medium of earning dollars.
Let us understand through examples. Suppose, ‘Mr. Akbar is a rickshaw puller by profession. He earns money by transporting passengers all day long. Note that those who drive rickshaws have no schedule. When wish he drives rickshaw, when wish takes a rest, if he disagrees with the passenger, he says directly, ‘Don’t go!’ In a word, he is independent. If he thinks his body is terrible today, I will not go out with a rickshaw. Is anyone in the world able to force him? Then we can say that the method of driving a rickshaw is freelancing, and the rickshaw driver is a freelancer.
Similarly, a Mason, a CNG driver, a Wheelbarrow driver is a ‘Freelancer’, and their work medium is ‘Freelancing’.
Again, a Bank Manager or Varsity Professor but not a ‘Freelancer’. Because they have to maintain time, if the office is at 9 o’clock, they have to go to the office before 9 o’clock anyway. If they don’t go on time, they have to face punishment from the “Boss”, as a bonus, they can be fired from the job! Waking up again in the morning, it seems that the body is not good today, or in the afternoon, it appears that a bit of rest is needed. Whatever you do, you can’t do as you wish! Finish the work first, then the rest of the survivors!
What is Outsourcing?
Now let’s talk about outsourcing. Suppose every year in our country, many people die due to dengue in the rainy season, and many are hospitalized due to illness. May Allah keep everyone healthy. This dengue is more common in the rainy season. Now every city corporation has its people to keep it clean. Now it turns out that what people have is not enough. It will take 2-3 times more people to do the cleaning work well in these few months.
Now the city corporation has two ways in hand. Either those who need extra are hired at once. It will be seen that there will be trouble for them, they need for 2-3 months, but they have to pay for 12 months! Which is a loss project. Another way is for city corporations to hire additional people on a contract basis. You will stay three months when the work is done. He will leave with the money. This is the benefit of the city corporation. It is what is called ‘Outsourcing’.
Outcome: Freelancing and Outsourcing are entirely different things.
I hope everybody understands. In the next episode, I will discuss how to do freelancing and outsourcing or prepare yourself etc.
