Webinar: How to Find Work

If you’re looking for more work opportunities these days, hurry and register for the CFG’s upcoming webinar How to Find WorkThis online event happens on Wednesday, October 21st from 7:30pm to 8:30pm Eastern Time.

One of the first member benefits the Canadian Freelance Guild established after being formed in April of this year was The Job Bank. CFG members Robyn Roste and Rachel Sanders scour their sources for full- and part-time work, contracts, gigs, calls for pitches, remote working opportunities and more, covering the many different fields in which our members work. They have already posted 40 pages of possibilities to The Job Bank since the middle of April. They will share their search techniques and provide some advice on responding to the opportunities found in The Job Bank.

Lesley Evans Ogden is adept at seeking out international clients for her ideas and will share tips on how to find and appeal to those clients.

This webinar is also your opportunity to share both your successes and the challenges you’ve had during these rapidly changing times.
