Neena, an IT graduate and an ardent academician was working with a top IT company when she met Raj. They found that they had almost matching wavelength and began seeing one another often. This developed into a relationship and they got married with their parents? permission. Neena continued working after her wedding and life seemed to be a bed of roses.

After a few months Neena became pregnant and somehow things began changing. She had to take frequent days off due to morning sickness, hormonal changes and began to be considered as a person who would not stick to her words.
The days that were nearing delivery were even more terrible. The worst part was that the company did not have any maternity leave conditions in the employment agreement and Neena without any other choice had to leave her job.
She assumed that she would get a better job after delivery, however after a few months, she seemed to be so much engrossed with her baby that leaving her in a cr?che became imposible and thus her career to a deep plunge.
Neena is not alone, almost every Indian woman faces this phase of life which makes her ver depressed and confused. However if you could find a job that lets you stay at home and yet earn some extra buck, it would give you a lot of satisfaction as well as financial independence. Here I have covered freelance job opportunities in web designing, which I feel would be helpful for many moms at home. In the end I have tried to give you some links to real web designing jobs too, take a look?
Web designing is something that involves a lot of creativity making it more attractive and sought after job. If you are a web designer and know exactly how to get a freelance job you would be able to earn more than what you had in your office toiling the whole day.
Freelancing Jobs in Web Design
As a web designer your most important job would be to design a web site, build its lay out and also provide the design in a creative way. the main criteria here is to build a page that satisfies the needs of the client. Hence you are required to have both programming as well as creative skills in HTML, XHTML, PHP and CSS.
Ease of Work
If Neena chooses this work she would be able to work anytime when the child is asleep and after the maid has completed the days cork. She can ask the maid to look after the child and go about working.
You do not have any boss peeping into your desk and sneering at you. If your child is not well you can postpone your work. You can fix the deadline and hence it is more comfortable and tension free.
As a freelancer you also have the ability to fix your payment, which I would suggest to be kept low in the beginning and raise with time.
Here are some links where you can apply directly. I have chosen links from India and mostly south Indian. Kindly feel free if you have any more enquiries. All these links are taken from the internet and so not have any direct connections to SIM.
