What do I need to know to start a freelance career? | LAUNCH.ed

With the growth of the ‘gig economy’ and the vast majority of individuals in the creative sector being in small businesses, self-employment or freelance careers, graduates are required to call on entrepreneurship and business skills on a daily basis.

Join us to learn the basics you need to know to become a freelancer and find out more on the support available.

In this workshop we will discuss:

  • What is a freelancer?
  • Getting legal
  • Getting to know yourself
  • Getting paid
  • Available support and help

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

While this workshop is especially oriented towards students studying in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures the information is applicable to freelancers from other disciplines. Open to all students and recent graduates (within two years) from the University of Edinburgh.
