Don’t freak out! Prepare!
This month our Denver, Colorado Recruiter Superstar Lauren Friesen talks about what happens during the holidays when you're a freelancer.
Remote is the new black, right? Today, flexible work arrangements are everywhere, from the part-time worker sitting next to you to the freelancer writing your corporate blogs. But not all of these remote workers operate under the same types of arrangements. Today, there is a lovely rainbow of diversity in the way we employ our workforce.
If you work in a creative field, it’s important to share your work. That’s why Photographers, Graphic Designers, and Copywriters all develop portfolios to showcase their talent. If you’re looking for the next gig, or even if you’re an employer searching for the right talent, an online portfolio is very important to help you decide your next steps.
Indeed is, indeed, a big deal in the job world. That’s because, when it comes to hired candidates, they over deliver. A 2016 study by the Society for Human Resource Management showed:
Clearly, your resume should make its way to the Indeed platform. But how will you separate yourself from the thousands of other candidates on the site? Here are our top tricks and best advice for putting your resume on Indeed.
This month Recruiter Lauren Friesen tackles the tough question of college degrees. Do you need a college degree to become a Graphic Designer?
The long-winded answer is: it depends. It depends on the industry, it depends on the company, and it depends on the niche - UX positions won't necessarily require the types of degrees that traditional Graphic Designer jobs do. A huge, conservative financial company might want to see that B.A. while a small start up agency might not.
Sometimes to get things done, you have to do it yourself. In the instance of a small, medium, or big project, this philosophy means you might feel compelled to lead and motivate your team. This means, in effect, that you will become a Project Manager. The Project Management Institute says that PM is a discipline that applies "...knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements."
If you're a freelancer, you're not just an employee...you're the CEO of your own organization, the president of your own brand! And even scarier, you're the entire PR department for your business.
So how do you succeed in all these roles AND manage to work on projects you love? Copy from the professionals! Meet Julia Thiel, one of Artisan's talented, successful freelancers who has been working in Chicago for years. She's managed to meld passion and project using these 10 pieces of advice.
