It’s podcast time! Pop the kettle on, grab your favourite biscuits (hell, cut yourself a huge slice of cake) and have a listen to this week’s three minute Freelance Teabreak: “Episode 30 Is freelancing for graduates”:

Is freelancing right for graduates?

One of the things I’m really passionate about is demonstrating that freelancing is for everyone, and that freelancing for grads is a very real career option. I graduated a decade ago with a degree in business, and at the time freelancing wasn’t even a suggested option. Isn’t that crazy? Teaching people about business but not how to start their own?. Ten years on, and from the graduates I’ve spoken to, it’s STILL not presented as an option.

In this week’s episode, I’ve put together some of the reasons why I think graduates should give freelancing (or ‘the career buffet’) a try instead of jumping into an apprenticeship or a job they might not love.

Were you told about freelancing at university?
