Should I pursue a full time job in marketing or freelance to build an agency?
In my previous job at a large family fitness facility I was a marketing associate and customer experience manager, this meant I did everything from crafting marketing campaigns to fulfilling the services. Design the menu and work in the kitchen...I designed all banners, posters, merchandise, website, newsletter, print, menu graphics, website graphics and digital publications. I also managed operations, memberships, a cafe team, facilities, and digital marketing contractors. What guidance or skill set enhancements could further elevate my career? Considering my experience should I get a job OR find part time work and provide freelance marketing services such as social media management, design and publishing services to business owners?
I want to get an internship in a UI/UX Design role, but everything I find are senior roles or min.5 year experience. I don't know how else to get experience unless it's through Freelance, but then that way I won't learn much. Any leads or suggestions on how to make this happen?

What is involved with running your own business? Is it the right option for me?
I'm a 12th grader looking to choose between the arts and sciences for her career, and one option I've been introduced to is freelance work as an artist, or being a small business owner. Is it really as glamorous as it sounds? How long does it take? Is it worth the potential risk? #career-counseling #art #smallbuisiness #freelance
Is it better to work in an industry or as a freelancer?
I plan to do 2D and 3D animation as a career and I heard it was a pretty unstable job which worries me a lot since I want to help my parents financially as soon as possible. I also worry about it for my own good if it will be enough to support me as well financially. #freelance #animation #stable-job
What is involved in becoming a freelance editor?
I love writing, and I enjoy helping others make their writing better as well, so when I heard a talk on freelance editing, I thought "This sounds like something I could do!" However, although I feel confident that I could do the actual editing part, I don't know much about how I would get started or prepare for it. I'm still in college at the moment; should I take some business classes for electives, since freelance editing would mean I would essentially be running my own business, or would other classes be more helpful? What do you have to know (besides editing skills) to become a successful freelance editor? Any tips would be much appreciated. Thank you so much! #editing #writing #freelance #writing-and-editing
What specific factors affect the chance of a freelance illustrator getting a job offer from a client?
I understand that freelancers have to manage their own money, time, daily schedule, as well as their marketing, and various other things. Because of this, I would like to know the specific actions taken by a **freelance illustrator** (who is looking to get an offer from a client in any industry) that they feel are their most important "keys to success." For instance; ● Are there any things a current or previous freelancer would recommend having on a resume? ● What kinds of pieces would you recommend having in a portfolio? ● Are there any specific sites or places that you would recommend getting familiar with? ● Any tips and tricks you used to increase your number of possible clients? Thank you in advance for your time. #illustrator #digital-art #illustration #freelance #digital-illustration #art-and-illustration #freelancer

Most of the teenagers have confusion while choosing their career path after high school.
Is there a better way to sort out many of the teenagers confusion, by letting them known about which areas they are good at and at which areas they are going to excel? This will give them a clear view about their future. #engineering #medicine #law #architecture #high-school #arts #politics #freelance #freelancer
Which is better, large market studios or small market freelance work?
As a soon to be graduate is it better to jump straight into large market areas or begin smaller as a freelance designer. I am curious as to whether it would be more beneficial to start out small, in a local area close to home right out of college, to grow as a designer or if it is reasonable to go to the bigger market areas to bigger firms. If I jump straight into the bigger firm area how hard is it to get a job, and what would I need to do to make myself look better to larger design firms being from a small town? #design #graphics #web-design #digital-media #freelance #multimedia #visual-design #visual-studio
