Freelancing A New Path for Students


Unemployment is one of the most serious social problems in Pakistan. Whenever a problem develops in any society, there is always more than one cause. Certainly there is more than one cause of unemployment. The main reasons for this are population inflation and lack of sources of employment. While other reasons include bribery and recommendation, lack of seriousness of students, defects in academic standards, focus on single degree instead of preparing students for the future at university level, focus on single book knowledge instead of applied knowledge etc. There are significant reasons.


As a result of the rising unemployment rate, students and young graduates often seem anxious and anxious about their future and ask various questions about their future. I usually give students two pieces of advice.

1) Students should read the article they are reading not just to read or just to memorize, but to understand the article and read it in the context of its practical application. In our country, theory subjects are considered unnecessary or insignificant and this misunderstanding is found even in teachers themselves. Theory is actually a summary of the practical experiences and research of others, which tells us what the subject is, how this knowledge was created, what its purpose and purpose is, and how this knowledge can be put into practical use and application. Therefore, students should read these articles in this context and gain their understanding.

2) Students should learn some skills (or skills) along with teaching knowledge and then start working for themselves.


In Pakistan, summer in the plains and hot areas and winter in the cold and mountainous areas usually have a holiday of two and a half months. Most students usually graduate during this time, so this time can be spent learning these skills.

There are many different ways to learn N skills. Usually during these holidays different universities and private institutions offer different types of courses, so these skills can be learned from these sources. Another alternative is that different institutions also offer different courses online, so you can learn from home. If a student does not have the financial means, then in this age there is a lot of material on the Internet (YouTube) about almost all fields, one can also learn from there. A practical advice for those who learn from YouTube is to complete at least two different video series (sequential videos on a single course covering all topics from beginning to end) whenever they learn from YouTube.


The next important question is which skills to learn? In my opinion, the appropriate case is that every student should learn the same skill which is according to his education or degree. In addition, I usually advise students to learn WordPress or graphic design.


The 21st century is a digital age, in which their demand and use is relatively higher than other things and secondly, these two courses do not even require prior computer knowledge. So it is easy for students to learn them. In addition, other skills such as content writing or blockchain can also be learned.


Once students have completed a course and are convinced that they have learned, start freelancing from any freelancing platform etc.


In addition to freelancing, projects can also be done with your relatives or acquaintances.

The best way to get started is to have two or three friends work on a project together. Because no matter how strong one’s inner belief is, one learns and attains mastery in the true sense of the word.


These tips can be applied not only to young people who are studying in universities but also to those who are unemployed or have a menial job. Such individuals may set aside some time for this on a daily basis after their working hours, but students may also set aside some time for this learning process in addition to the winter and summer vacations.


The practical benefit for the students will be that they will continue to learn the skills along with the education and thus after completing the education they will also have practical experience with the certificate. This experience will not only help them to get a job, but if they want to continue their own work, they can easily and in a short time increase it, but also provide employment to other people.
