In the second in a series of excerpts from her book Dance at Work, Helen Baxter looks at the rise in remote working and a future of ‘No More Jobs’.

“Your dream may be to find a great job in a cool company, but a fantastic job offer is more and more likely to be as a contractor than as an employee. Don’t wait until you graduate or are made redundant to build the foundations for a freelance career or to start earning money from creative side projects,” says Helen.
 
“Learning about professional practice and business is essential for anyone who wants to build a sustainable creative career or company. It’s better to start something small than nothing at all, and who knows where it may lead?”
