The end of the year can be challenging for freelancers like us.
While full-timers know their work schedule, and are often treated to down days if not an entire week or two off around the holidays, for freelancers the end of the year is much less predictable.
The end of the year can be slow, which can mean work dries up halfway through December. Or if can also be when clients are trying to use up all the annual budgets, and you’re suddenly looking at working three jobs through the holidays.
Full-timers also have year-end bonuses, holiday decorations, and invitations to the work holiday party to look forward to. They even know when and where to report to work come January, while as freelancers we are often in the dark about our start day until the first gig offer comes along in our email inbox.
Members can join the private Facebook group full of fellow photographers, copywriters, editors, creative directors, UX designers, art directors and yes, recruiters. Many of whom freelance for the biggest clients and agencies in the word.
