College Students Should Freelacne

Nowadays, college students face the daunting task of looking for a job in a global job market. With that being said, competition in the job market is really tough and many students are sitting on their degrees. I am convinced that if college students freelanced they would be better off in the future. Below are reasons why college students should freelance.

1.       Paid Experience
Graduating from college with paid experience in your field is a good thing. In addition to internships, graduates will have an outstanding resume if they were successful at freelancing while in college.

2.       Portfolio
Having a portfolio is a something every graduate should do. Freelancing can provide you with a portfolio when you begin searching for jobs after graduation. This will work well for students who are not required to have an internship.
3.       Extra Money
Freelancing could be a way to keep money in your pocket during your college years. In addition, college student can continue freelancing after college. Freelancing can come in handy if you do not have a job lined up after graduate. It beats sitting on your parents couch doing nothing all day.
4.       Narrow Down Your Choices
 Last but not least, freelancing allows students to discover what they want to do in their field. For example, if you are in the communications field, you can try freelance writing and photography.

Is Freelancing Easy?

Photo Credit Pixabay
If you thinking about freelancing as a career choice, you may be wondering if freelancing is easy. To answer your question, freelancing can be easy and it can be difficult. If you are confused, keep reading, I will give examples below.

As mentioned above, freelancing can be easy. If you would like to have a successful freelancing career, you must be motivated, have a good work ethic, and have the ability to adapt like in any profession. If you are not following a regular routine, freelancing may not be an easy profession for you. When I started out, I was not as disciplined as I am now. I would make careless errors and did not have the discipline I need to be a freelancer. It took me a long time to develop the skills that I need to become a freelancer.

Like any other profession, freelancing can be difficult for some as well. In the section above, I gave a brief summary about how my freelancing career began. Based off that brief summary my beginning was not an easy one. I had to learn many skills and change my mindset.

In closing, freelancing can be easy or complicated. It is up to the freelancer to decide how their freelancing career will turn out. This will be determined how you start your career. I hope you are a successful freelancer.

Pros and Cons of Freelancing

Working from home comes with it own set of pros and cons. If working from home is something that you like to do, this blog post will be a good guide for you.

1. Create your Own Hours
One of the biggest perks in regards to being your own boss, is setting your own hours. With that being said, freelancers can begin their workday at anytime of the day. If you want to begin working at noon, you can.

2. Working from Home
Working from home is another perk of being a freelancer. If you like work in your pajamas or sweatpants and a tee-shirt, you can do that.

3. No Office Politics
When you work in a office setting, many people often play the game of office politics. This means playing nice to the boss so you can get promotions, and having to do things you may not want to do to succeed while at work. If you choose to freelance, there will be no office politics, because you will be the boss.
1. You Decide your Income
When you choose to work from home, you are the person responsible for deciding your income. There is no boss that is responsible for your schedule. Freelancers must do quality work so clients can come back and requesting more assignments to be completed.
2. You have to be Motivated
Working from home is not as glamourous as it seems. With no co-workers, you have to focus on your work and avoid distractions that could get in the way of your freelancing.
3. You have to Pay your Own Taxes
Individuals that work for a company, have taxes taken out of their earning everyweek. If you choose to freelance, you will have to set aside the money to pay the government if you. Some freelancing site require freelancers to submit the proper tax forms you recieve your first payment.
