job application tips Uncategorized Update

I’m not renewing my membership with (internal link). I did get some continuing work from them but for the last several months they have flooded me with e-mails about jobs I’m not qualified for.

No, I don’t speak Mandarin, Cantonese, or Tagalog. And, no, I don’t have a four year college degree. My membership profile does not list foreign language ability or any completion of college. Yet continued to send me notices about jobs requiring either one or both.

Despite this unhappiness, and this may sound contradictory, I still think they are the best freelance site out there. They curate their listings really well and the jobs listed there are legitimate.

If you have the time to manually search their listings every few days then you should consider their service. If you don’t have that time, if you need to rely on their e-mail referrals, save your money.
