Jumpstart Your Freelance Writing Career 2.0
About the Event
The experts have called it; many of us have seen it. The future of work is the “gig economy”.
The 21st century synonym for a “job” is a “gig”—a project, task or project you are hired to do for a defined period of time. Office-based 9-to-5 jobs used to be the norm but the Internet and the start-up economy have disrupted traditional ways of doing business and by default, ways of being employed.
Experts predict that “gigsters” who may also be called other names like freelancers, consultants, or independent think tanks and design firms will be the future of work. A LinkedIn study showed that by 2020, an estimated 40% of workers in the United States labor force would be “gigsters”.
Are you ready for the gig economy? How can you future-proof your income? One way to do it to sign up for Writer’s Block Philippines’, Jumpstart Your Freelance Writing Career 2.0 happening on February 16, 1-6pm in Fully Booked Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
