next generation freelancing
the first ever freelancing business school
Offering you an unprecedented cutting-edge competitive advantage
a changing trend
While traditionally most freelancers are hired by small and medium enterprises, this is changing as "more than 80 percent of large corporations plan to substantially increase their use of a flexible workforce in coming years." (Intuit 2020 Report)
the good news and
the bad news
The good news is that the number of freelance careers will increase and “In the U.S. alone, contingent workers will exceed 40 percent of the workforce by 2020” (Intuit 2020 Report). The bad news is that you will be competing on a global scale with technical graduates, business school graduates, and former corporate executives, which means that you need to gain an advantage in order to succeed.
do you have the skills to compete?
Large corporations often require different skillsets than small to medium enterprises (SME), creating more of a focus on collaboration, communication, project management, sales, marketing, and many other skills, in addition to knowledge and experience in your core expertise. Therefore, acquiring these skills is a must if you want to rise above your competition.
