Event Description {{detailsExpanded ? '- Show Less' : '+ Show More'}}

Freelance without fear and turn your creative passion into your career.

If you think you might look at freelancing now or in the future, join us to go over some of the practical considerations. Our workshop will give you an insight into what is needed to become a successful freelancer.

In this interactive, participatory session we will discuss:

  • How to operate lawfully
  • How to market yourself
  • How to make sure you get paid

We will also provide resources designed to help lay some foundational elements to your freelancing career.

We will end this workshop with a conversation with some experienced freelancers, and a chance for questions.

This event is part of the 2021 Graduate Show Professional Development series by the ECA.

You may also be interested in meeting with one of our 1-2-1 advisers, who can have a 1-hour appointment with you (to start, multiple appointments available) to help figure out what your specific next best steps will be to ensure that you are freelancing effectively, lawfully, and successfully.

Any current student or recent graduate can attend.

If you have any questions, you can contact Ioana at Ioana.Buzduga@ei.ed.ac.uk
