Reinvent your working life (FREE FESTIVAL)

October 15, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Free
Freelance Jungle

Have you lost your job due to COVID or the bushfires?

Are you on your 47th work-related existential crisis for 2021?

Have the recent events highlighted you’d like a little more control over your working life?
There’s no denying 2019 through to 2021 has forced a lot of people out of work and/or to rethink what a meaningful career looks like.

Since the onset of the bushfires through to the arrival of COVID, the Australian working life has really changed.

From redundancies through to downsizing, the collapse of industries and small businesses, downsized pay packets and having your life up ended by lockdowns and restrictions, it’s been a tough two years. Like really tough.

But maybe, there is a better way.

Now is your chance to see if freelancing is for you.

The Freelance Jungle are giving you the opportunity to reinvent your working life.

This FREE series of workshops and presentations are designed to help you see if freelancing is the right career for you. You will be able to access information from people who have been made redundant and survived. Hear from people who have moved on from one field to another and are feeling pretty great about it. We’ll bust a few myths along the way. And you’ll learn general freelancing information to help kickstart a career on your own terms.

And the best part? It’s ENTIRELY FREE thanks to the generosity of Facebook Australia and Good2Give.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM:
The Freelance Jungle redundancy program has been made possible through the generosity of Good2Give and Facebook Australia.
