EPISODE SLICE #9: Will Moyer Talks About Freelancing as a Web Designer in Beijing

On today’s episode slice, I’ve got Will Moyer, who is an ESL teacher turned web designer in Beijing, China. Like a few other guests on Atlas Sliced, Will began as an English teacher and then decided to pursue his skills and interest in web design. Instead of moving back to the good ole USA, Will stuck around in China, and he’s making it work as a freelancer.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

  • Leaving his U.S. job to teach English in China
  • Transitioning from teaching to freelance designing (barrier to entry is much easier in China)
  • Finding clients and the importance of word of mouth and networking
  • Chinese clients vs. Western clients
  • His lifestyle of working on his own time and making time to travel to other parts of Asia
  • Why traveling at a more relaxed pace (if you can do it), allows you to experience more and get a better feel for the country

… and so much more!

Info and Sites Mentioned in the Interview:

  • Dave’s ESL Café – Will used this site to find job postings for teaching English in China. It’s a great site for lots of teaching opportunities abroad.
  • Expertise – A recruiting company for English teachers in China. NOT recommended.
  • SkyScanner – Will’s favorite flight site for booking flights
  • C Trip – A flight site that Will has used for flying in and around China
  • E-long – A flight site that Will has used for flying in and around China
  • Air Asia – An airline for booking flights around Asia
  • Will’s website – Want to know more about Will? Here’s his site!
  • Surveillance Clothing – Will is another member of the new clothing company.
