東京上班族 Podcast

歡迎回到我的頻道「東京上班族」! 上禮拜跟大家分享「家教」。我自己大學時期當了幾年的家教有什麼心得,在日本當各種不同語言的家教時薪分別為多少,我自己又用過哪個網站練習了一下自己的日文口說。

今天要跟大家分享是我自己非常喜歡的「Freelancer」。

「Freelancer」中文應該是翻成「自由工作者」。雖然意思應該要是一樣的,但英文的「Freelancer」跟中文的「自由工作者」,卻給人截然不同的印象。

在美國人家問你說「嗨,你是做什麼的啊?」如果你說「I’m a Freelancer。」人家通常可能會說「Oh nice,what kind of Freelancing ?」會是一個非常輕鬆自然的對話。

但中文的話,如果人家問你是在做什麼的,你說「我是自由工作者」我相信大多人的反應都會是「喔,是喔,這樣具體是在做些什麼呢?」中文的「自由工作者」比較會給人一種「不可靠」,你是不是「沒在工作」的感覺。

我自己對這種新的工作型態非常感興趣,而且未來絕對只會越來越主流,在這邊跟大家分享一篇CNBC上個月發出的 文章

  • More than one-third of the American workforce freelance amid the Covid-19 pandemic, contributing $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy, a study by Upwork revealed Tuesday.
  • This was a 22% increase since 2019 and it was fueled in part by an influx of younger, highly-skilled professionals seeking flexible alternatives to traditional employment.

Major Trends:

  • Freelancing increases earning potential: Of those who quit their full-time job in order to freelance, 75% say they earn the same or more in pay than when they had a traditional employer. Freelancers doing skilled services earn a median rate of $28 an hour.
  • Professionals are likely to consider freelance work in the future: 58% of non-freelancers who are new to remote work due to the pandemic are now considering freelancing in the future.
  • More professionals are freelancing full-time: The share of independent professionals who earn a living freelancing full-time has increased 8 percentage points to 36% since 2019.
  • Companies of all sizes turn to freelancers: There is a burst in demand for people to support customer services as well as ecommerce development, web and mobile design.
  • 51% of freelancers say no amount of money would entice them to take a traditional job.

講到這邊,聽眾們,你有什麼心得感想呢?我個人很喜歡這種新的工作型態,很自由很不被綑綁,很多時候是以Project在做,所以能接觸到的人,碰到的機會也比較多元。雖然我很推薦大家去嘗試,但有些地方確實要自己稍微注意一下。像我自己其實在幾年前就有用過這種Freelance的網站請人做過一個客製化的頁面。當時主要是想要做一個餐廳網站評分的頁面,想要請人寫點程式好讓來我網站的人可以用星星數量來做評分。當時沒有請過,所以請了一個比較便宜的印度的Freelancer來幫我做,但最終成品不如我預期外,溝通上也不是非常的順暢。所以我的結論是,一分錢一分貨。最好是請人家做一次性做好就不用再去碰的東西。

好啦今天就先分享到這邊,喜歡的話,記得訂閱也記得幫我評分留言,每週一發佈最新一集喔!感谢你的收聽,我們下禮拜見!
