LinkedIn ProFinder senior product manager Thogori Karago said in a blog post Thursday that the number of freelancers on the professional network has grown by 50 percent over the past five years, adding that more than 70,000 freelance professionals across the U.S. are using LinkedIn ProFinder.
Karago also shared several statistics on the first year of LinkedIn ProFinder, as did product manager Yu Liu in a second blog post.
The three industries that have been behind the most freelancer growth over the past five years were healthcare (47 percent), retail (42 percent) and software (33 percent).
