HOW IT WORKS
Create your Profile
List your services and qualifications to showcase your talent with experience.
Helpful Tip: Be specific when choosing the words to describe your skillset in the Keyword search. Casting a broad net is not a great tactic, you want to find the right match for your skillset and personality.
Ex. if you have never had a position as an event strategist but think that you could do the job, it is better not to list that as experience.
Search for Opportunities
Find projects that excite you and allow you to set your timing and price to match your skills.
Submit a Bid
Provide a bid and pricing to complete the work.

Not currently. But as we grow, it is part of our plan, so stay tuned.
Does payment matter if I want to get paid hourly or project-based?
You would make the payment arrangements with the organization.
Could I make good money working as a Freelancer?
It has been projected that 43% of the US workforce is considered a freelancer. They must be doing something right!

Am I allowed to ask a buyer for a review?
Absolutely! One of the best ways to get more jobs is to have a high rating.
As a freelancer, what tax form will you provide me?
