And an open ended contract negotiable with your employer is possible depending on the agreement you make before starting work with them, more often done when considering clients on retainer vs simply hired for one

    The highest paying jobs for freelancers are typically in the software engineering realm. Freelancing can have its pros and cons, one being that it's most often not a steady paycheck. It means you'll be picking up random gigs here and there, which can come with some benefits if you enjoy adventure or challenge, but also comes with the risk of income variability. For this reason freelancers often keep their day job while they work through other projects on the side to supplement their earnings - while we mention that both freelance and traditional employment may yield similar pay rates by time worked (per hour), freelance employees should consider non-financial benefits like employer-provided health insurance when making the decision to go solo.

    You've just given an excellent example of a broad question. I feel like we may be better served talking about freelancing careers in general before we talk about the rates for any particular job. Freelancers all have different strengths, and they work on different types of jobs with different clients. And the most important thing to understand is that various freelance contracts result in very wide variations in pay rates and work environments - some even give you complete control over your hours and location while others leave you with little more than a physical address and a list of ten predetermined tasks that must be completed without deviation (instantaneously). Freeling for less than an hour one day might not yield as much as freelancing 12 hours on the next day.

    The best job for freelancers is whatever they are passionate about and whatever the world needs. It's up to them to find what's best for themselves by understanding their skills, abilities, and passions. There are so many potential occupations out there, so do some research to find topics that resonate with you. We all have different life goals - our task is to create the best situation given what we want in terms of time commitment, location etc., but also things like job stability and potentially income! A study done last year found that social workers ranked highest on income at $43k annually (Nerd Wallet).

    When it comes to freelance jobs, there are many opportunities for freelancers. Information technology is one of the highest paying freelance careers. IT positions fetch an average of $69,000 annually. The field requires technical skills and strong analytical knowledge so people usually go out to get formal training in information technology fields before starting on their job hunt. Another option for higher pay is data positioning which offers an annual salary nearer $53,000 for positions requiring excellent command over statistics and programming languages like SQL or Python. Finally you can do writing (or be a translator) that will earn you approximately $42,500 or more per year depending on your experience and credentials related to the written word.
