Putting Together a Quality Profile

To increase your chances of getting hired, you need to have a well-written and constructed profile. Having a better profile puts you in a better position in our freelancer search directory and leads to an increased chance of being hired.

 

Here are some suggestions for how you can make the perfect profile:

 

Profile Picture

First impressions mean everything when it comes to being hired! For clients to trust the freelancer they will be working with, they need to know who the person is, for which having a good picture is a must. Use a professional looking photo of yourself that shows your face clearly. You can check our profile picture guidelines here.

 

Profile Headline

Besides having a strong profile picture, it is important that clients know your expertise and how you can help them succeed with their projects. Having a good headline is also quite important. The headline of your profile should be short yet powerful. Uniquely describe the best service you are offering.

 

Here are some examples of good headlines:

 

Graphic Designers - Web Developers & SEO Specialist

Excel / VBA Expert | Data Analysis & Visualization

Ex-Google, 10 years of Machine Learning experience.

 

Display Name

Ensure you are using your real name or business name (for corporate accounts) not just for the sake of compliance, but for earning credibility points from clients, as they will be sure how to properly address you when speaking with you.

 

Bio/Profile Description

 

Bio

 

Make your bio concise yet complete. Ensure that it has all the information that matters to clients. Remember that you are selling your service, so focus on what clients want to see. 

 

Tell them who you are, what you can do for them, and why they should choose you. Describe your qualifications and experiences. You can also include the best review you received from a recently completed project.

 

All this is best written in first-person perspective to have a direct connection with clients unless of course, you are a corporate account working with a team. Before posting, make sure that you proofread your summary for any grammatical errors and typos.

 

Here’s a good example of a proper profile description:

Portfolio

 

 

You can get into more specific details by using the portfolio section to showcase your best work. Present your work in gifs and videos to catch the attention of clients. Having at least 6 items in your portfolio guarantees that you will stand out.

 

If you have not completed a project yet, take exams relevant to your skills to show that you are capable of completing projects.

 

Previous experience and certifications

 

 

Highlight your education and work experience in this section. This will give your clients an in depth look at your previous jobs and the tasks involved. Add the title of the position, alongside a brief description of your responsibilities and accomplishments, with the period in which you worked there.

 

Here you can also add any relevant major projects that you completed on Freelancer.com. We also recommend adding any relevant certifications and publications that you may have.

  Professional Photo

  Powerful headline

  Well written, spelling, and grammar-checked summary that describes your key services
