Thinking of going freelance/contracted, any advice?
over 8 years ago from James Storer, UI Designer at blinkbox
I’m a user interface designer in London and I’ve been thinking about going contracted for a while now but I’m a little nervous, the usual fears … what if I don’t get a contract straight away, how much money should I have stashed away etc. I have a mortgage and other financial commitments that aren’t going anywhere.
Some areas I’d really appreciate some advice on are: - How to work out your rates - Best ways to get a contract (recruiters or direct, mystery option no.3) - Any sectors to stay away from (Financial? Gambling?)
And any other advice that the DN community has to offer would be greatly appreciated.
