Five golden rules of finding freelance job

There are a few golden rules you must always follow when you are finding a freelance job. Breaking this rules or not following them might result in failure to get a freelance job.

  1. Be very specific and do your homework. Update your profile, explain in detail what is your expertise and what is the time line you can offer to complete a project.
  2. Always be truthful. Lying just to get a job is not advisable as you might not be able to deliver what it is expected by the employer and even not meeting the targets.
  3. Be down-to-earth and forget about being arrogant even though you might have 10 years (or longer) experience in that field.
  4. Prepare to work shoulder to shoulder with the employer for a win-win situation.
  5. If you have accepted the bid, stick to datelines.
