Showcase is our very own online hiring and networking event exclusively for Freelancer Club members. It’s an amazing chance to form meaningful connections with freelancers and virtually meet with hiring brands which can lead to paid work. Share your screen to present your portfolio, land jobs and make industry connections from the comfort of your own computer. The last event saw over 200 attendees make 100s of connections. And, it's growing! The next Showcase will have speakers offering your insights and advice on presenting your portfolio and landing the job.
I personally attended the first Showcase event as a writer a few months back. Having never taken part in anything like it before, I was quite nervous! But I was really impressed with how smoothly things ran, and felt incredibly uplifted after being introduced to so many awesome freelancers, and inspired by meeting loads of hiring companies. So it’s definitely a massive perk of being a Freelancer Club member - and not one to miss!
