Filling your resume and showcasing your skills in detail are the first and most important steps you take after signing up on WINaTALENT as a freelancer.
A good profile:
- Reflects and represents your expertise in the best way
- Passes our assessment procedures more easily
- Attracts more and better clients
But what does a good profile look like on WINaTALENT?
Start your profile by completing your personal information
This section has the following mandatory fields:
- Job title
This part is extremely important because it’s the first thing the client sees when viewing your profile.
It’s basically describing your expertise and experience in a few words.
For example, senior full-stack developer.
- Hourly rate
This part indicates how much you’re going to charge your clients per hour.
Make sure to carefully consider your skills and the average international rates when you fill this field.
Note that clients can only see your bids when you bid on projects and send your proposals, not your hourly rates.
You can read about average global outsourcing hourly rates to get a better sense of the rates you can offer.
Even though WINaTALENT’s profiles consist of both required and optional fields, note that a more complete profile increases your chances of attracting clients. So try to complete your profile as much as possible.
The next section is the “about me” section
In this section, the clients will look for:
- Various hard and soft skills, such as your area of expertise and collaboration skills and
- An overview of your work experience and its results
- Personalized content that shows your trustworthiness
It’s like making a good first impression.
You need to give all the necessary information clients need in a manner that doesn’t put them off.
Remember that clients have to go through several profiles to choose the best one, so make this section:
- Clear, concise, correct, and complete
- Easy to read
- Have clear sections
- Written in the correct format
Don’t just rely on providing a link to your LinkedIn profile, make your “about me” section stand out by thoroughly describing your work and highlighting your values. Avoid lengthy explanations and turning it into your biography.
The next step is completing the information concerning your education
Add the schools you’d attended, your areas of study, and the degrees you’ve earned.
