Freelance job seekers utilize online networks
One of the most difficult things about being a freelancer is that you’re constantly seeking out new work. Even when you have a steady stream of regular jobs, you keep an eye out for additional work. The job search is one that can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! Establishing a regular routine for finding new jobs helps to de-stress the situation. Make use of the numerous online resources that are now available. This alone can make finding freelance work significantly easier than it ever was in the past.
One of the ways that many freelancers have started obtaining new jobs is through social networking sites like LinkedIn. This is a professionally credible site which allows freelancers to highlight their skills and meet others who can make use of those skills. To successfully network online, freelancers should create an online professional profile in multiple places.
Most importantly, don’t forget to include a link to your professional resume website and project portfolio on your resume. Note somewhere in your profile that samples can be viewed of your work and provide a direct link to this as well. Creating a strong online presence through social networking platforms and and other career websites will assist greatly with networking for new jobs – whether they are for freelance or full-time.
