In this post we’ll discuss about getting freelance job.
After chosing your desired field or area, your first task is to create your profile. Here you showcase your previous works. Previous works may include the works that you have done for your client or sample project.
Prepare your profile in a Word document or any other word processing software.
For each project add one attractive title, short description and a beautiful image. One thing you must remember when you prepare your profile or write a project proposal make sure that your text do not contain any grammatical or spelling error.
Maybe there is no relation between your work and your spelling errors. However employers are always aware about them. So be very careful about you spelling mistakes.
It’s time to open accounts in different freelance sites. For example upwork.com, freelancer.com and Guru.com.
Three secrets of getting freelance job
Now I’ll tell you 3 secrets of getting freelance job from my experience.
1. Bid on small or low budget project – for first few projects. First 3 projects should be for advertisement only. Don’t expect money. But, don’t do it for free.
2. Bid on projects as early as possible
3. If any client or employer contacts you, reply instantly.
Let me tell you one thing before I finish. It may take many days or even months to get your first job. But don’t give up. Keep trying. Once you get your first project and complete it with good feedback from client, you don’t have to look back. 🙂
