Independent professionals working in the talent economy are a crucial resource in the new world of work.

IT and marketing have always relied heavily on external expertise due to increasing technicity of those jobs. Technological change is becoming faster and faster, which makes it difficult to recruit trained employees.

The most wanted tech skills are not available on the regular job market or take too much time to recruit.

The past 3 months will remain in history as the moment when work became remote, something most “office workers” could perfectly practice without being with their colleagues in the same building.

And even if this forced way of learning how to work remotely was not necessarily the best, children running in the living room or with your kitchen table as your desk, more and more companies are now announcing they’re not going back to the old normal, some even claiming they will adopt full remote work as something permanent.
