Consulting in the Gig Economy
This guide to consulting, gig work and freelancing is full of ways to get yourself ready for self-employment. It gives advice about setting up a company or not to, PR, how to write and organize your CV, ways to win work and importantly, how to get paid through smart admin and partner agreements.
Gig workers will account for over 25 % of the working population by 2025 and the entire growth of the labour market has come from the gig economy according to a recent report. Everyone is a gig worker today – you just do not know about it yet.
With this e-book, I want to encourage companies, organizations and all freelancers also known as gig workers, to constantly develop and become better and more conscious in their professional role by learning and reflecting. To be successful regardless of role, it’s important to think long-term, focus and constantly be prepared to work with one self. In this book, you will learn more about how to succeed in the gig economy and about the different types of roles you can have as a gig worker. For example, as an employee in a consulting company, self-employed, or administered by other companies that specialize in making it easier to thrive with assignments instead of drowning in administration.
You will learn to build your personal brand and to build trust in your network. We will also cover what you need to consider concerning assignment-based work and being a gig worker, freelancer, consultant, contractor etc in order to get great gigs!
In this book, the term ”success factor” is used to describe the characteristics or skills that make you a better gig worker. They are important as assessment and follow up tools for you in your personal development now and moving forward. You can hone your strengths and improve on your weaknesses.
Employers or purchasers need to constantly adjust to new market conditions in order to attract talents now and in the future. They need to constantly develop like the gig workers who must update their offer continuously as well. My main tip is to never stand still.
I hope to inspire and support consultants and gig workers globally and strengthen their position in the job market today. I also hope to discuss this subject during this week when I am participating in the global conference for our industry: ”Sharing Economy Global Summit” i London February 4-6th 2020, says author Marianne Olsson.
