This question was asked, Does freelancing experience count in the business world?. The question makes it sound like the asker is leaving the freelancing world and joining the workforce.
This question would be on topic on The Workplace SE, but the question we must answer -- before there's any talk of migrations and such -- is whether or not this question is on-topic for this site.
Many freelancers work independently for decades, while many freelancers dart back and forth between regular paid positions and freelancing, and many freelance part time.
Thus, it seems like we should make this question work. What, if any, edits are needed to remove any doubt that this question can remain on our site as an example of a good, on-topic question?
