Hi, I am new to this field of robotics and have had very less experience practically. Currently I am looking for freelancing opportunities in the field of robotics. It would be of really great help if someone could suggest me a place to find out freelancing projects related to robotics. I couldn’t find any such projects on the internet or I might have searched the wrong place. I don’t know. please help and thank you!
I’ve been freelancing/consulting full time in robotics for close to 5 years now. I have written three blog posts on my experience that you might find helpful:
That said, I was already working in the field for 4 years when I started my consulting journey and I was quite narrowly specialized in drones and mobile robots. If you don’t have any experience in robotics I think it might be very difficult for you to find clients, as most of the clients will look for people with hands on experience.
Good luck! If you have any questions that are not covered in my blog posts, feel free to comment here and I’ll reply to the best of my abilities.
Thank you so much for the reply. It will surely help me in the long run.
I’m just starting out as a freelancer (www.linkedin.com/in/victorpaleologue), and I’m helped by the networked I built as an employee and as a PhD student.
It looks hard to start without a network, and I would suggest you get in touch with the communities you want to work with. I try to go to their Slack instances, exhibitions, follow their publications, get in touch directly with authors and stakeholders.
Also contributions to open source projects are a great way to help, get experience, showcase your skills, and actually weave a piece of network. That usually gives me something to show to prospects who would like to learn more about what we could do together.
