Freelancer applying for a full-time position

Freelancer applying for a full-time position

A freelancer applying for a full-time position may find it challenging to press a variety of experiences into an application designed for applicants with a history of full-time positions.

Freelancers could approach the application process from an angle that frames their experiences so that it is easy to understand to those unfamiliar with freelance work.

Rework your resume and vocabulary

Getting through the first round of the hiring process often means adapting your resume to match the job description. Freelancers may have multiple jobs within a two-year period where the roles are similar to one "title.

  • A freelancer could describe the title's responsibility for a full-time job description that asks for 'two to three years of relevant experience."
  • Where one has to put the company's name, instead of listing 50+ projects, consider placing a label that describes your situation, e.g. Freelance position, clients include x.y.z. etc.
  • Or include a summary of attributes.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
