THE STATE OF FREELANCING IN THE PHILIPPINES | Online Marketing Hub | Scoop.it
Freelancing is a booming industry in the Philippines—and it’s not hard to see why.

Make no mistake, the Philippines has a big pool of world-class talent. The only problem is the lack of good opportunities that will fully utilize or fairly compensate them. Filipino jobseekers are also required to fight tooth and nail for competitive positions despite the fact that they could end up being underpaid and overworked. As a result, thousands of young professionals turn to freelancing and make their services available to the international clientele.

However, the lack of local employment opportunities is not the only reason why Filipinos choose the freelancing life. There are also numerous benefits freelancers enjoy such as flexibility, bigger earnings, and the opportunity to leverage English fluency.
