Outsourcing is a Win-Win Situation – I say ‘Go for it!’


The world has changed so much in the last few years.  I stayed home raising children for several of them, and when I decided to get back into the job market, the whole landscape had shifted on me.  I was disconcerted in the beginning, frankly a bit fearful and worried about how to go about the whole job hunting and interviewing process after so many years out of the game.

Surprisingly,  it has turned out to be an exciting time.  I discovered remote (outsource) work by sheer accident while searching Google late one night.  I discovered a site that puts potential clients and service providers together with a bidding platform.  All of a sudden the world seemed so much smaller than it had before.  I discovered that job opportunities are no longer dictated by location.  With the explosion of the outsource market, we are able to expose our talents to a much wider audience than every before, and are now able to work with clients from all over the world.

There are many benefits for both sides.

CLIENTS:

  • Clients pay only for work performed.
  • Insurance costs are eliminated.
  • “Water cooler” breaks are a thing of the past.
  • The pool of quality service providers has expanded because the barrier of location has been erased.
  • Work can be assigned on short term or long term basis with ease.

SERVICE PROVIDERS:

  • Work can be performed from anywhere.
  • Commuting to work is a thing of the past, which not reduces our stress, but is also better for the environment.
  • Income once allotted for gas, wardrobe, and meals can be used for more enjoyable things.
  • Have the ability to set work hours and time off.

Today, with most people having access to high speed Internet, outsourcing is a wonderful solution.  I say go for it; it’s a win-win situation!
