How to survive without a real job

As a writer, some days you may not feel like you have a “real job”. This is both amazing and terrifying at once — but what does it really mean?

Vivid Sydney are exploring the topic this year with their panel presented by Junkee: How to survive without a real job.

From the website:

How secure are you in your career? Is it okay to keep changing jobs? What do new workplace forces — the sharing economy; the freelance economy; the growing ‘precariat' — mean for you? And how can we plan for a future that we don't fully understand?

Our panel of experts will discuss how the job market is changing, and what that means for you.

In Junkee’s event for Vivid Ideas, CHRISTIAAN VAN VUUREN (Bondi Hipsters), TIM FUNG (, Tank Stream Labs), workplace researcher SHARNI CHAN (UNSW, USYD), freelance writer, editor and copywriter KATE HENNESSY and panel moderator BENJAMIN LAW (journalist, screenwriter and author) will be drawing from their varied experiences in the media, tech, corporate, academic and creative sectors, to talk through the job market and how it’s changing — and to offer some vital pro tips on how to get by.

This event is presented by Junkee; Junkee is Australia’s newest pop culture title, covering film, TV, politics, comment, tech, online and everything in between. The content we create each day is designed to go beyond the headline, to inform, intrigue, provoke and occasionally make you laugh.

And yes, that is our amazing presenter Kate Hennessy on the panel. We encourage you to check it out!

Date: 31 May 2015
Time: 3pm – 5pm
Location: Museum of Contemporary Art, Level 6 Terrace Entrance, Sydney
