I'm looking for a job but nobody can hire me without a work permit. It's very difficult to find a company which would sponsor me. In the meantime I would like to work part time as a freelancer. Is it possible ?!
No, working in the U.S. for pay, for your self or for an employer, would be in violation of your status. To get your B2 visa you were required to prove you could afford your trip to the U.S. without engaging in unauthorized employment. So you are simply not allowed to work in the U.S. and you should not be looking for work either.
