Securing employment that provides economically secure wages can be a significant challenge for individuals who face obstacles to employment due to a lack of credentials, a criminal record, or care taking responsibilities. When job local opportunities are out of reach, how can survivors generate income? Working as an independent contractor may be an option. Working as an independent contract can allow survivors to utilize their skills, build their confidence as well as a resume, provide flexibility and control, and perhaps even lead to the development of their own small business. This webinar will introduce independent contracting, key considerations for those pursuing contracting, and resources to help survivors safely navigate these employment opportunities.
