Freiberufler


Explanation:
= als Freiberufler tätig sein
= Überstunden machen

it depends on what job you are talking about. If it's a general matter use Freiberufler if it's in the field of finance, marketing, advertising etc. (everybody who wants to be trendy) use the term "Freelancer" (m).

to work overtime is always - Überstunden machen
