Are you currently freelancing or thinking of becoming a freelancer? It is estimated by Forbes, Fast Company, and Entrepreneur magazines that 50% of the workforce will be freelancers by 2020. Are you prepared? Do you know how to create an estimate, establish your brand and business, or how to handle negotiating or not getting paid? Get an overview of the differences between independent contractors (also referred to as freelancers), work-for-hire, and what to expect. We'll cover all this and more in this series led by serial freelancer and Career Center staff member Melissa Hennessy.
