Why become a freelancer? (Can you really make money?)
A common misconception is that the freelancer field is littered with workers who can’t find or hold regular jobs, but this assumption is incorrect! Forbes reports that 32% of freelancers are seeing an increase in demand while only 15% have seen a decrease!
Freelance work is a great option for people who don’t have time to hold a full time job or need flexibility in their schedules. This makes freelance work perfect for college students who have busy class schedules and social lives, but still need to bring in an extra income for those expensive textbooks $$. Being a freelancer fives you the freedom to create your own schedule, be your own boss and make money doing what you’re good at! Hummingbiird’s goal is to give college freelancers a platform to connect them with students who need services so they can build their business in a safe and effective way!
As for making money, most Hummingbiird services start at $20/hour! You can work as much or as little as you like! If you have 5 extra hours to work some gigs on a Saturday, you could bring upwards of $100 for pocket money the following week!

Hummingbiird Professional of the Week: Jason Frankenfield, photographer
1. Hummingbiird certainly seems to have quite a bit of versatility to it. From my experience so far, it would be easy to say that the flexibility to market your services that you are best skilled in to someone who is looking for that certainly appeals to me.
2. My top skills can certainly be hard to peg down, I try to adhere to being as punctual and professional as one can be on the job as well as fluid with the customer (I’ll try to work with them to make their vision exactly as they see it in their mind)
3. My favorite photos to take are actually something more in the scenic area. A lot of what I do involves clubs, modeling or events but when doing scenic shoots, it’s pretty cathartic
