To Freelance Or Not To Freelance: That Is The Question

Ms. Career Girl

The post To Freelance Or Not To Freelance: That Is The Question appeared first on Ms. There is also a side-question of whether or not you are a freelance worker by choice or because there are no other choices. If it is cheaper and the Internet provides adequate cover, then why not send employees home, skip paying healthcare benefits, skip taking out funds for Social Security, Medicare and Worker’s Compensation, and dispense with the annual employee picnic.

Is Penelope Trunk Feeding Gen Y “Career Crack”?

Ms. Career Girl

Trash it yourself, before an employer trashes it for you. You have to remain in a job for a period of time to establish yourself with your company and with your co-workers in order for a relationship to build. Would Penelope call in a favor from a company or co-worker she left stranded after forcing them through the expense of hiring her and then having her leave?? We’re lucky to have health insurance from our employers.

Because my department is very small, I really risk my complaints getting back to one of my other co-workers, deeply hurting them, and damaging my reputation. I have started to not say anything when my co-workers complain to me and just nod along. I’m currently employed at a call center job that I hate. If so, how should I address that without making a potential employer uncomfortable due to discrimination laws? is my employer plotting against me?

Unless this is a nonprofit, it would be illegal for the employer to accept. With the exception of nonprofits, the Department of Labor requires that unpaid work be primarily for the benefit of the volunteer, not the employer. And if it’s not, they can reclassify you as an employee and require the employer to pay back wages for all the work you did. But more common is a reference check, where an employer will ask about the quality of your work.

He feels he wouldn’t be a good fit in the dynamics of the company or even be considered for employment. My contention is that a year-plus without a job means one shouldn’t be too picky about the dynamics or atmosphere of a potential employer as those things evolve over time and do not have to remain as perceived. When should I tell my employer I’m applying to grad school? is my employer plotting against me?
