To many people, a remote job and a freelance job mean the same thing. This is however, not right. A remote full-time job means you are employed by a company or organization but you are not required to be physically present at the office. Other terms used to describe this type of job are telecommuting, virtual jobs or home-based work. The work can be on permanent employment or contract.
Freelance jobs on the other hand refer to working for other people without any employment obligations. The terms are project based and end with the job’s completion. With this summarized definition of the two types of jobs, which one is right for you?
