Honestly I don't know what to choose. The point is that I prefer to unify all of these options. It means I wanna have stable fee per every month at work and conversations with collegues, but the time for freelancing is necessary too. And in the long run I would like to be rather independent on financial situations for cancentrating on skilling up and creativity and to be sure in tomorrow.
I cant decide on none of them. So far if Im studying and have a part time job to cover my extras I will be focus on getting good grades and learn as much as possible. Freelance its a nice perspective but you need to have already a reputation to have a decent income as that. Sometimes the risks as higher than the reward which is not good. Having a stable income is good. It helps you know that you will have a secure pay for those expenses and the stress life is reduce. But then the part that will love to have some freedom is restrain. Which is sad cause sometimes great pieces will erupt from that. Seeking the balance is the best option I can suggest. Trace a plan and maybe you can glide thru all these options without suffering a lot. Hope this make sense to you. ^^
Freelancing is realy nice perspective, I think I can say I'm freelancer now ;] But to be honest the most interesting perspective (and also completely beyond reach... ) is to ignore the money aspect of life and concentrate on studies, science, inventions, accumulating moar and MOAR knowledge I'm on the last year of my studies and I realise that here on Gdansk University of Technology are at least 10 different faculties (from different departments) I would like to complete if I only could afford this with time, money and duties... ;] And after completing those mentioned 10 faculties I would move to non-technical university and start harvesting MOOOARRRR knowledge there
Arbeite am besten erst mal ein paar Jahre fest, am besten in der Werbung oder ähnlichem. Man lernt sehr viel dabei, nicht nur künstlerisch. Wenn du dir einen Namen bei möglichen Kunden gemacht hast und immer noch Bock hast, kannst du dann zehnmal leichter als Freelancer einsteigen. Oder du gehst volles Risiko, bei der Wirtschaftslage fast selbstmörderisch ohne finanziellen Rückhalt...
I used to think freelance was for me, but the more time passes, the more I realize that the more reliable income of being a full-time employee (depending on the work place) could really reduce some of the money-centric stresses in life. And money-centric stress accounts for a lot of life's total stress.
If a job just isn't working out and you find yourself miserable, you can quit and look for another one. (;
Freelance to pay for studies worked out so far. From what I've experienced the difference between a freelancer with a steady load of clients or only a few mainly is a combination between luck and connections.
And I love freelancer because it gives you way more controll to choose which assigments you like to do and the ones you just do to make a living
All I used to want was to work in some company or studio...but now I'm realising that's not the go for me, I'm pretty patient with my art and they usually take me no less than 10 hours but usually twice as long, but that's usually my limit - by then a week or two have elapsed and that's when I start to get sick of the same project and want to finish it off for good and start something new
Not that it matters to me, there's virtually no place for artists like me in the industry, especially how limited such industries are in Australia in particular - and as for freelance jobs - I've only gotten 4 all year, only 2 of which I've seen any money from
I chose the freelancer. Although now I'm in a small firm as a web designer. I'm still in the learning process so I can't say with 100% how are the things for real. Only thing I know is that I'm in the safe income now I think that if you are good at something, its no problem to take a risk with the freelancer stuff... gl & hf
