What is a freelance engineering consultant?
A ‘freelancer’ or ‘freelance worker” is a term commonly used for a person who is self-employed and is not necessarily committed to a particular employer long-term.
Freelance workers are sometimes represented by a company or an agency that resells their labor and that of others to its clients with or without project management and labor contributed by its regular employees.
Others are completely independent. While “independent contractor” or “engineering consultant” would be the term used in a higher register of English or in the 21st century, freelancing is common in culture and creative industries and this term specifically motions to participation therein.
In the 21st century freelance engineers are now working from all over the globe. They provide needed services remotely while lowering corporate overhead and boosting productivity. They can reduce corporate office sizes which in turn reduce electric consumption and daily commutes. The average person spends 1.5 hours a day commuting to and from work. Imagine the productivity that can be achieved through remote management and remote work.
