The advantages of working freelance are simple. 'For example, You can choose your work according to your interests and time, you can choose how many days/hours a week you want to work, you won't have a boss breathing down your neck and you get out what you put in - if you put in extra hours, then that money goes into your bank account and not come big corporate's' explained Managing Director of DK Connect Ramune Kuskyte.

What does OTE mean for Freelancers?
"On-target" earnings (OTE) is a term often seen in job advertisements, especially for sales personnel. The typical pay structure may be composed of a basic salary with an additional amount of commission. The package usually involves a contract or trading agreement between the company and the sales person that ensures a specific commission percentage, fixed lump payment, or a combination of both, provided that the salesperson hits specified sales targets. While all commission plans are unique, often exceeding sales targets results in higher commission rates on sales beyond target for a specific period.
Alternatively, OTE can refer to an executive pay schedule contingent upon the achievement of specified goals.
