The Gravy Train of Employment

May 29, 2013


A small business may ask, “Is a good freelancer hard to find?” That’s a difficult question to answer. While there are thousands and thousands of freelancers helping out countless small businesses, one does wonder if their knight in shining armor is out there amongst the big sea of providers. Many small businesses have industry specific needs that require a number of full-time, on-site employees dedicating themselves to their job responsibilities. However, businesses looking for efficiency from simple jobs that fall outside the set of skills their in-house employees contain often turn to a pool of freelancers to compete for the job.

What this boils down to next is finding a freelancer that has the skills you require to complete the job in the manner you desire. An employer is looking for excellent communication, timeliness, and willingness to go the extra mile overlapped with someone who has a strong skill-set. Logo design is a good example of a simple job that a freelancer can handle. Did you receive the perfect logo design amongst the hundreds that were submitted to you through your logo design contest job? In many cases, an employer absolutely adores the design but might like small modifications to edit the content or add an aspect not originally mentioned to the provider.

This is an opportunity for the chosen freelancer to shine and show the employer that he or she is more than just a freelancer with a catchy member name with a knack for designing logos. It’s imperative to show appreciation to the employer, communicate effectively on what changes are needed, and give them a time frame for completion. This strategy typically bodes well for the freelancer because he or she has impressed the employer enough to gain the trust and respect of them, which may in turn lead to further freelancing jobs.

Businesses are always looking for the perfect fit for openings at their place of employment, but finding freelancers who are as dependable as the day is long is instrumental. Employers can turn to the freelancer to find out more about his or her skills and inquire if more work can be done. Small startup businesses may need an array of web design, programming, and content writing that doesn’t fit their current employees’ job skills. With these jobs high in demand, combining a vast amount of experience with the proper attitude and communication approach, a freelancer can place him or herself in good company at a business looking for someone in which they can rely on.
