šŸŽ§Freelancer’s Lunch

As a contractor, should you have a CV? Or is it falling into IR35 territory? What role should the CV play in the future of contracting and consulting? None at all? Should seasoned contractors attract new clients and recruiters by their reputation alone? Or is a professional profile or backstory the best option?

In the latest Freelancer’s Lunch featured video, 6prog’s Andy Barnes and Fluent Forward’s Matt Todd discuss the pros and cons of CVs for the contractor and client alike and if there are more valuable alternatives.
