According to a report revealed by the digital payment company Payoneer, most Pakistanis under the age of 35 (90%) are opting for freelancing which is more than the global average of 70%.

The report is based on a survey of more than 70,000 freelancers from 150 countries.

According to the report, more than 75% of people are going freelance, full-time, due to income contentment.

Reasons for making it a full-time career

  • Greater job opportunity
  • Independence

The most popular freelancing field in Pakistan is web and graphic designing. As far as advertising on social media is concerned, Pakistani freelancers are dependent on Facebook and LinkedIn.

According to data, 81 per cent of Pakistani freelancers prefer to work from home.

Speaking to a source, the country manager of Payoneer, Mohsin Muzzafer, said, “Pakistan has stayed in the top five freelancing markets in the world constantly. It is the right time for our small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to increase beyond borders and drive the digital economy of the country.”

Muzzafer further said, “Many people now consider freelancing as a full-time career, which is a big shift to positivity. It will increase job opportunities for the youth and have a positive impact on the economy.”

The CEO of Payoneer, Scott Galit, said, “Freelancers from all over the globe are empowered to obtain work, fix their wages, advertise their skills, and get paid how and when they want.”
