Freelancing is one of the FASTEST-GROWING businesses all over the globe offering the opportunity to work as a part-time or full-time freelancer according to your choice. In Pakistan, the Freelancing industry is generating a revenue of half a billion dollars. Around 1.15 million Pakistanis are contributing in rising the global freelance economy. We are also doing huge part in Pakistan to motivate people to do freelancing jobs.
Unemployment and low rate in the regular job are the two main reasons for the popularity of freelancing in Pakistan, offering a more flexible way of earning. People today are more attracted to self-employed limitless earning potential work. It means that you will be your own boss and work as well as relax according to your preference.
Students, housewives, and particularly disabled persons are availing the freelancing opportunity the most to make money through various outsourcing websites such as Freelancer.com, Guru.com, Upwork.com, and Fiverr.com, where contractors from all around the world hire Pakistanis based on their talent. Freelancing jobs are most beneficial for unemployed people who have skills but don’t get the opportunity to utilize them.

Pakistani freelancers are mostly young adults under 30, and almost 10,000 IT graduates enter the online freelance market every year that eventually enhances the job opportunities online.
But there is so much to do for ranking Pakistan on the top in the freelance market. Our youngsters are trained to do 9-5 jobs like robots; for the growth of the freelance market, we need to introduce some special academic courses for students to guide them on how to earn their living via freelancing.
Another big issue, Pakistani freelancers are facing is that there is no payment mechanism like PayPal in Pakistan to receive payments from the international clients, the Government needs to work on it too.
The Government of Pakistan is working quite hard to promote Freelancing in Pakistan, and for this, several initiatives have been taken, such as e-Rozgaar, Digiskills, and many other platforms. These platforms are training youth and providing them the skills that are crucial for freelancing. If our Government keeps promoting Freelancing in this way, Pakistan will acquire the first position in freelancing globally soon, and our revenue will cross $2.4 billion mark over the next five years.
