    Hi guys

    I know this a very broad question but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm due to graduate from uni in the next couple of months with a computer science degree. I already have a job lined up for when I graduate, however, over the next few years I would like to go freelance as a Web developer. Could you please advise on the best way to go about this, especially getting a first job? Also, would it best to get used to using templates or developing and designing from scratch or would it completely depend on the client?

    Thanks! :)

    Hi there!

    In my opinion, since you are to practice first your profession before getting into freelancing. Your job experience will be of great help in honing your knowledge and skills more if you want to apply it further when you push through freelancing.

    I suggest while you're on your future job, you study how will you go freelancing. Learn skills by enrolling to online freelancing sites if you think you need to. You can even look for part-time jobs online to gain experience.

    It's great to know you are into freelancing also. I wish you luck in your career. Bless you!

    I think that you now need to focus on defending your dissertation in order to do this successfully. If you need help, you can contact the appropriate services. Then I will also advise you to register on freelance sites and try to take the first orders. You need to practice before moving on to full freelance.

    Graduation is a frightening time for many reasons. For many, it means departing from a place that you have lived in for many years. For others, it means saying goodbye to people who have been a big part of your life. But one of the most terrifying things about graduating is finally leaving education and entering the real world McDVOICE

    Hello, if you already have a job lined up then you should not miss that opportunity and take the job. In this way, you will get to experience the corporate world and get proper exposure in that environment. You will also get to learn many new things. Moreover, you will get to know how things actually work.
    For freelancing, you need great skills which comes by practice and designing type of work usually depends on the clients.

    You don't have any experience as a freelancer. But, that doesn't mean that you have zero valuable skills to bring to the table. Think through what unique experiences you have that could help you pitch yourself to prospective clients and stand out from the other freelance competition out there.
