Why, as a Freelancer, you should work with Startups and Organisations?
If you’re a freelancer or aspiring to be one, have you ever thought of working with an organisation/startup/agency? Yes or No?
Either way, let me help you decide on it. Let’s get an insider shot of what working as a freelancer with an organisation looks like. Starting with the GOOD.
Benefit and Perks
Starting with the most asked question: The Pay.
Needless to say, Handsome Pay. Freelancers working closely with rising startups are paid handsomely for their services.
Experience of working with a Team
Freelancing can feel lonely to many, and thus to incorporate a sense of collaboration, teamwork, and healthy competition, working in an organisation is a thumbs up.
You can often recognise a new potential in you while on a project. And every project you work on gives you a list of perspectives from your team members, which is lacking when you work alone.
One-man army is good but to sustain for a longer run, the art of working & managing people wins the show.
Process and Operation Insights
The behind-the-scenes of working in an organisation gives you real insights in case you plan to build something of your own in the near future. The marketing insights, ideation, designing, building prototype, taking feedback, making the alterations and launching it is a BIG TASK, which you can learn closely while working in an organisation.
The guidance is abundant. The right mindset will help you grow 10x in a startup. You will think and work as a leader.
Direct Communication with Users
When you work as a freelancer, you mostly communicate with clients, but in an organisation, you speak with a lot of people on different levels. You get to work on a deeper level.
And because you are involved at a root level, you see every problem as an opportunity to solve.
But what’s the catch...
So, as there are two sides to every story, let me also introduce you to something we create many memes around: Office Politics.
However, being a freelancer, you are always at an advantage or remain unaffected as you are not part of an organisation’s typical hierarchy and can leave it if you do not like the work culture and start working on your personal brand.
A notice of 15 or 30 days is good enough if you’re planning to leave the organisation.
But as said, healthy competition is good. Don’t be afraid of grabbing a good opportunity, be flexible enough to try everything out for your good.
This is raw insight from a person who has worked in an organisation & is building one.
