Re: [proposal] worksFor himself (freelancer)

Personally, I would also like to see the Person type expanded a little 
more to include properties such as "skill(s)" or even 
"areaOfExpertise".  I think that it would also be nice if the expected 
value could be a Thing or Product, which would allow us to pull in other 
data sources such as Productontology, Freebase, or DBpedia to get very 
granular with things.  Currently, I don't see a clear and simple way to 
mark up what particular skills a person has or what their field of 
expertise is.  The Person type does have the jobTitle property, but of 
course, a job title does not in itself paint the entire picture 
regarding what a person does or can do.

It's true that we could use Person >> makesOffer >> Offer to mark up 
what services a freelancer is offering.  But what if the person isn't a 
freelancer?  What about just being able to mark up what a person does 
and what type of skills they have, whether they work for a company or 
are self-employed?  I think that by adding a very clear way in which to 
mark up a person's skills, we can help things on both sides--the person 
and search engines.

At least those are my thoughts on this matter.

Of course you could say that a Freelancer is a person that makes at least one offer that includes a product or service. But I do not think that is essential. Freelancers should be modeled as http://www.schema.org/Person and ideally model their range of services using http://www.schema.org/Offer.
