When comparing freelance work to “regular” jobs, Millennials say freelancing gives them more freedom to: – Work wherever they like (92 percent). – Work whenever they like (87 percent). – Work on more interesting projects (69 percent). – Travel while working (half say they’d prefer this to taking vacation time). You Might Have a Closet Freelancer on Your Staff Many Millennials are biding their time at regular jobs and freelancing on the side until the time is right to leave. Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) of those who work regular jobs want to quit to be entirely independent; 61 percent say they likely will quit within two years, and 17 percent say they definitely will….
