Just been reading about what to do after Uni in the "Company or Freelance" thread. I have left Uni, got 18months work under my belt (plus 6 years of marketing materials for a charity group) and now sadly unemployed. I see what you are saying about us young'uns thinking we can go straight into freelancing. However my problem is that whilst I have coded a Blog CMS, developed plugins (like a Grouped Users Permission manager), illustrated the Uni Magazine for 4 years and had my design job I feel I can do it. However, whilst working on a branding for myself, organising work into a website, sorting out contacts and money managing methods I'm not earning! I'd like to use freelancing job boards to earn a little something whilst I set things up but I'm not sure how to use them. How to I make sure I get the right job description? How should I get the money out of them, paypal? How do I avoid getting sued or abused for works made in the future?
