Job Boards Advantages
Posted August 5th, 2013 in Articles by Eko S

Due to the economic crisis that has just passed (or we want to believe that it passed) people are reticent in making businesses and an immediate effect was the decline in online investments. It’s obvious, the Internet is an immaterial entity and subconsciously, it is associated with a higher risk than brick and mortar businesses. Altogether, everything has a positive side, even an economic crisis. One of the positive consequences was the rethinking of how the resources are spent. In web design community, this movement created good opportunities for ones that dared and brought to bankruptcy the ones that didn’t search for solutions. The economic rules are simple and pragmatic: the profit is equal to incomes minus spendings; therefore there are two solutions to maximize the profit. The first possibility is to raise the costs to have higher incomes, but it’s not recommended to apply it in bad economic conditions. The second one is to lower the spendings and it represents a better solution. Well, some web design agencies preferred to save money by giving up to the offices and the employees are working from home so they saved the money for rent and transportation. Others selected to outsource some projects and all these created the perfect context for a more dynamic context for designers. In other words, working from home isn’t a dream or the appanage of a freelancer; it’s on the way to become a normal state (maybe this article may convince you).

Working from home has its downsizes but overall, it’s better than working into an office, having a bad chief and some annoying colleagues. A great advantage of working from home is the flexible program, what really matters for someone in this position is to have finalized the projects before deadlines. The most active ones manage to work for more clients or to become engaged in some freelance projects. In these circumstances, it’s no surprise the growing of job boards and speck work markets. From the start, I want to mention that these two entities aren’t alternatives to a job, but definitely, are better than effectively waiting for a client. Continue Reading »
