Introduction to Outsourcing
Outsourcing is a term that has become very popular in hundreds of different industries
over the past five to ten years. Before outsourcing became a popular means of doing
business, companies were forced to hire on new employees every time they had a new
need; regardless of how large or small the job.
Outsourcing is not simply for companies that are looking for somebody to suit their
needs; it can also be very valuable to anybody that is looking to start his or her own
business. By becoming a contractor, you can work independently while only taking on
