Japanese Freelance Jobs and COVID-19 Coronavirus
The COVID-19 crisis has changed the global economy including Japan’s way of working. However, there has been a large growth in new freelancer work and job projects. Even though economic activity has been slowed down, there has been an increased need for project-related remote, temporary workers. Companies in Japan that may have been resistant to remote work or using contractors on a project-by-project basis have discovered that their own company staff and workers were just as effective working from home as they were in the office. In the future, and to survive in business, many Japanese businesses are likely to cut down on manpower costs by limiting full-time employment. This will create more demand for home and online working freelancers in Japan. Here you can find information about the Top 12 Freelance Job Websites Today and in the coming year.
