Contractor Application Assessment
Hi! Thank you for applying for our freelance opportunities. We've reviewed your initial application and would like to learn more about you and what you can do!
Before we get that information from you, please take a couple of minutes to watch the video below to learn about our mission and the people we are looking to work with.
As an independent contractor, you'll have control over your working hours, the pay rate you set, and will be responsible for providing your own software, equipment, and resources needed to perform your tasks. Your main role will be completing specific tasks based on your expertise and skill set.
What You Can Expect From Us
We are here to support you. Our team will provide all the project specs, content, plans, outlines, and any relevant files needed for your task. Our company will be the main contact point for the client, providing long-term support, and ensuring the quality of the work delivered.
Instead of using platforms like Fiverr or Upwork that can take 20% of your pay in fees and prohibit you from doing business off their platform, we will use a different system and structure that will greatly reduce or eliminate the typical fees you're used to.
We believe in career growth and progression. As your skills and experience grow, we'll support you in charging more for your services. By always expanding our team, we can bring on individuals with a variety of skills to complete projects that meet our client's budgets.
Working with us can help you build your portfolio. You'll receive credit for the specific tasks you complete, and if you choose to work on our volunteer projects, you can showcase it in your portfolio as volunteer work, helping to impress your prospective clients or employers.
Fair Payment Structure
Typically, we agree to a payment structure of 50% upfront, with the remainder to be paid before the final files are delivered. However, these terms are negotiable as per your contract you make with us.
You're not bound by a long-term contract and are free to collaborate with us as long as you'd like. We value the relationships we build with our contractors and believe in a flexible working arrangement.
Question: How many projects will I get per week/month?
Answer: The short answer is that we don't know.
We know what it's like living with unpredictable income. It's difficult and stressful to say the least.
Unfortunately, we aren't able to guarantee any amount of work as there are many variables involved - how many clients we can get, the client's budget, your suitability for the project, the project deadline, your project preferences, and other factors.
What we do promise is that we will treat you fairly and do our best to send you projects regularly that suit your skill set and preferences. You will not competing against everyone else in the traditional sense or bidding on projects.
Every person has certain things they specialize in, and other things they don't. We are going to match projects and tasks to the best suited contractor who is available and who meets the client's budget needs.
To help compensate for this instability, we will provide you with resources, tips, tricks, and support to help you find projects and jobs outside of the projects we send you. You can connect with other contactors that join our team from around the world, where you can be inspired and get ideas that can help you find more work.
Your success and ability to achieve your goals is important to us. So, we will be happy to serve as a reference for you to prospective employers and clients, as well as give you insights in how you can improve to be more competitive and stand out.
We want to help you build your dream career doing something you love and care about, whether you're doing work for us or someone else. Together, we will be able to achieve many great things.
