Create and Manage A Top-Notch Freelancing Career!

If you dream of the day when you can set your own schedule and find meaningful work, or feel like you’re “trapped” in a corporate environment, then a freelance career might be right for you.

You're seeking greater control over the way that you live your life, but it’s important you know the steps to get there. And being self-employed doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. This online event will show you the best way to start your freelancing career, from the first steps of self-advertising and marketing, to building your schedule and managing clients. That way, you can focus on what’s most important to you: your work!

How does this work?

Tune into our weeklong series of webcasts where our expert speakers -- who know the freelancing world inside and out -- will show you how to set your budget, build your online presence, and create your game plan. All of the webcasts will be recorded and archived in an online classroom. You can also meet and interact with other participants in our forums. You'll network with other freelancers and share experiences, tips, and resources with one another.

Ready to kickstart your career? Enroll in our three-week workshop following these webcasts. You will complete weekly assignments that incorporate the topics covered by our speakers. Get feedback from advisors who are either long term freelancers or editors who work extensively with freelancers. By the end of this event, you’ll have a solid plan to launch and hone your freelance career.

Over our week long webcast series, you’ll understand how to:

  • Plan a timeline for becoming a freelancer and set your immediate goals
  • Develop a strategy for finding clients
  • Perfect pitch and query letters
  • Set rates and negotiate with clients
  • Make yourself known online through a stellar website and dynamic social media presence
  • Manage your finances and budget for growth

In New York City? Join us for a special happy hour following the final webcast to meet MediabistroEDU staff members, webcast speakers, and your fellow participants for an evening of networking.

Only interested in tuning into our speakers? Join our individual webcast sessions to learn from the experts without committing to the workshop component.

By the end, you will have:

  • A plan for making a profitable career as a freelancer, and the skill set to devote yourself to it
