Compilation of Unpaid roles

Published on Jan 25, 2019

I suggested last week's writing topic of unpaid roles and it was really interesting to read everyone's take on it.

Here is what everyone wrote:

If I missed any, let me know and I will add it to the list.


Reading through all these posts challenged some of my assumptions and opinions. Here are two takeaways:

Balance

With whatever work you are doing, there has to be a balance between passion, exposure, and money. Without it, the time you are spending doing that activity will make you think you are being undervalued.

Transparency   

With whatever work you are taking, there has to be a clear outline of goals and outcomes. Without it, you will feel like you are being taken advantage of and demotivates you to do the work even when you love that work.


Ultimately, any type of work should lead to happiness one way or another.
