  • Freelancer Survival Guide

    by Anna Debenham

    Part of being a freelancer involves finding yourself ridiculously overworked, or embarrassingly underworked. Then there are the client phonecalls at midnight, the dreaded tax forms, the cabin fever, and of course the hours spent trying to get it through to your friends and family that you do actually have a real job.

    With many losing their jobs in the recession, and university graduates struggling to get that first step on the career ladder, freelancing is becoming an ever more desirable and ultimately an increasingly competitive option.

    This session will cover how to set up as a freelancer, working out how much you should charge, keeping track of expenses and writing a contract. There will also be plenty of tips on how to be a better freelancer, including remote working, keeping your sanity, staying competitive without reducing your rates, and how to get decent clients (and keep them) without spending a penny on marketing.
