Freelancing 101

A guide for getting started with freelancing.

Professional Associations

Professional associations often provide low cost or free professional development opportunities that are included in the price of membership. 

Follow your association on LinkedIn or Twitter to see what's available. They will often send out notifications of training and relevant articles.

They also offer networking events where you can connect with others in your field.

PRO TIP: Associations often offer student discounts for membership as well. Remember to renew right before you graduate to extend your savings!
