The future of work is also on our blog
If originally, the notion of employability was reserved for a category of workers, today it addresses all profiles.
You may say, this is a rather enigmatic term, what does it really hide?
I'll explain a little better what it's all about. Jean Marie Peretti, professor of management at ESSEC, describes this key word in the following way: employability is based on the attractiveness of a person on the job market, but also on his or her ability to keep his or her job or to find another one within a reasonable time frame.
Here is a taste of what you can expect in terms of service offerings. When you conclude an assignment with a client, the staffing company draws up the service contract and sends it to the client.
Employability has no age limit, it concerns both young and old. Career development is intrinsically linked to employability. Working on your "personal brand" consists in knowing how to anticipate and identify a promising professional project.
Evaluate your knowledge and compare it to the realities of the job market. But that's not all, it requires continuous training, in order to develop your field of competence and better meet the needs of future professions.
Nowadays, a career is no longer linear. For all of us, the professional path is marked by changes: creation of a company, professional reconversion, periods of inactivity, consecutive mobility.
A career evolution in this context is therefore refined on a day-to-day basis and more in the long term.
Working on your attractiveness on the job market and standing out from the crowd are commandments to put into practice in order to succeed.
As a freelance consultant, I can say that I have achieved professional fulfillment thanks to freelancing.
The advantage of this combination is to work on meaningful projects that meet my real aspirations. As an employee in a company, haven't you ever had an interest in a subject, a target, without any possibility to explore it? When you are independent, you are finally free to act.
Here's an anecdote to illustrate my point. I was a web editorial consultant in a company, I was working with large groups to help them develop their content strategy.
As my professional experience grew, I naturally became interested in new client targets, looking for an editorial strategy. Since I am a freelance writer, I can finally address and help these new profiles such as solopreneurs.
By combining the two statuses, freelance and freelance administration, you have total control over your partnership projects. You can freely choose the most motivating collaboration that suits you.

Yes, I say it loud and clear, becoming a freelance consultant is to develop a real employability capital.
To tell you the truth, working this way is very stimulating intellectually. You learn how a company works and become autonomous in your organization.
Finally, you multiply experiences with high added value with clients from all horizons.
Freelance administration allows you to enhance your experience and, above all, to remain active. It can help you in different professional contexts and can represent :
●An opportunity in a transition phase, before returning to a job. It can also be a first professional experience if you are a student.
● A solution in the context of a professional reconversion.
● An alternative to starting a business: you test your new activity without taking risks.
As a freelancer, you benefit from another important advantage!
Did you know that freelance administration also opens the doors to professional training? Thanks to your services, to the payment of social charges and to your working time, you can feed your personal training account (CPF).
Most of the portage companies provide professional development advice. Your consultant is there to establish a career plan with you, which can be readjusted, particularly during the annual interview.
Once you have drawn up your career management project together, your training plan is implemented in conjunction with your consultant.
If freelance administration secures professional careers by combining protection for the employees and great flexibility for the client companies, it must be emphasized that this protection goes much further.
Let's not be afraid of the words, more and more entrepreneurial skills appear as a foundation for a new employability.
Indeed, and I am speaking to you from experience, being an entrepreneur means having a set of skills.
Very often, the majority of entrepreneurs have been, in their past, employees of a company. They therefore have proven technical and professional knowledge.
In today's job market, the entrepreneurial spirit is seen as an essential quality, highly valued and sought after.
Entrepreneurs are often associated with the following soft skills: innovation, agility, reactivity, ingenuity...
By nature, a freelancer is more likely to boost his/her career development. To embark on entrepreneurship is to accept to be in a process of continuous learning, emancipation and empowerment.
These profiles are therefore interesting for employers or clients. Often atypical, they are synonymous with rich and diversified backgrounds. These are undeniable assets for attracting new clients.
Knowing how to take stock throughout your career, taking an interest in skills development, not hesitating to embark on a training project. All these characteristics help boost your employability. Beyond this aspect, they serve above all to anticipate the risks of professional breakdown, which can sometimes occur on your career path. Being able to reinvent yourself is the secret of any professional success!
