For employers, having to search, select, engage and make a final pick could sometimes be difficult and stressful. We know, it was why we introduced the Concierge option.
Now there is better news. The process just got simpler. All a Employer needing a Freelancer has to do is to post the job request and wait for the offers to roll in.
No more guessing, if the profile you are reading is the best fit. When you post your request, you specify what you want, state your budget and every other details. The task will be displayed on the Recruit page and eligible Freelancers who can handle the project can then make an offer.
This process makes it easy and simpler for the Employer and Freelancer. The Freelancer gets to see what the request is all about and can make a valid offer while also specifying additional details. It also gives opportunity for the Freelancer to state targeted reason why he/she is the right person for the job based on the task specifics.
And for the Employer, it’s a one approach fit all situation. You have higher probability that Freelancers bidding for your Task have read and understand what it entails. It gives first time opportunity to explain your project and not having to decide who among the numerous profiles will likely be the right person to approach.
Its easy and quick – Continue reading to get started.
