🤓 From Permanent to Contract
So January this year, I left my permanent role to become a Contract User Experience (UX) Designer. I wanted to document and share some of the preparation before making the move so here's a start at it. To add, my notice period was 3months. BONUS Organising calls with recruiters can be long and tedious. I started using Calendly and it helped automate some of that process making it less stressful and time-consuming! Highly recommend using it, and it's free! https://calendly.com/ LINKS Ryland Consulting https://ryland.consulting/ https://twitter.com/RylandConslting https://www.instagram.com/rylandconsulting Treehouse 50% OFF your first month using this link http://bit.ly/2xzqReC Hotjar - Analytics & Feedback http://bit.ly/2hDVBSb
