About This Event
Do you prefer to keep a flexible schedule? Do you find it more convenient and productive to work from home? Do you want to escape the bureaucratic environment of corporate industry, and embrace the freedom and empowerment of determining your own workflow, project content, and pay scale? Or, are you simply looking for a way to expand your professional portfolio, or supplement your current income? If you answered yes to at least one of the above questions, then freelance work might be right for you. Whether you are an experienced designer or just starting your career, freelance work can provide you with the freedom and flexibility you desire, or the experience and credibility you need, while leaving you with enough energy and motivation to pursue your interests outside of work.

Join us for a masterclass examining how to know your worth from a freelancer's point of view, sharing key learnings, challenges, and secrets of success in a fun format.
