Freelance Career Choice - Were You Pushed or Did You Jump?
Contrary to popular belief a recent study by Monash University found that the majority of freelances wholeheartedly jumped into their independent Freelance role and don't regret the decision one little bit.
Eight different push/pull criteria were examined. A 'sense of freedom' appeared to be one of the major drivers with close to 80% of respondents stating that it played a significant role in their decision to become a freelance consultant. Other contributing factors were flexible work hours, variety of work and perceived ability to earn more money.
Conversely, the majority of Freelancers found that factors such as difficulty finding work, tight labour market, being laid off and job loss had no role to play in their decision.
