For example: As a freelancer, when I, before applying for a job, analyzed the full list of jobs in my market. That’s where I came to know, I can’t get off the ground with any jobs available.
Read the example and try to pick the idea. Although, the sentences in the example are perfectly well-structured and absolutely right, but extremely complicated. A person should write a piece of content which can be read by the general public easily. In the above example, you might have noticed that the writer is being very complicated and it’s difficult to get the idea at once that what the writer is trying to say because the idea is not simple to understand.
If we make the example simple, it will say that:
