If you're an IT worker, researchers at the University of Manchester in the UK need your help: they're conducting a transatlantic study on freelance careers in IT and management consulting, and have opened an online survey. According to the research team:

The aim of the online survey is to gain a comparative insight into the career dynamics of freelancers in IT and management consulting in the USA and the UK, covering key issues such as working hours, flexibility and access to pensions and healthcare. The survey should only take 10-15 minutes to complete and most of the questions are multiple choice. Any information provided in the survey will be treated confidentially, with a full assurance of anonymity.

Thanks for helping out! When we get the results of the study, we'll be sure to share them here on the blog. And if you want to pass on a link to colleagues, here's the URL: www.mbs.ac.uk/research/careers.
