Conestoga launches freelancing micro-credential

August 10, 2021
Conestoga College has announced that it will be launching the Successful and Sustainable Freelancing micro-credential for the Fall 2021 semester. Students in the micro-credential will complete courses in strategic foundations, operational frameworks, and demand generation. The micro-credential will also include concept instruction and one-on-one coaching. “Successful and Sustainable Freelancing recognizes the increase in remote work and a shift in students’ career goals,” said Rose Mastnak, director, Conestoga Entrepreneurship Collective. “We have seen a growing acceptance of gig work for employers and workers, with more people taking advantage of the flexibility outside the traditional 9-to-5 job.” Conestoga (ON)
