Before Applying for an Online Job
It’s always great to show enthusiasm and passion about your online job. But that doesn’t mean that you need to always agree, accept, submit yourself to every job that comes your way.
Carefully select the jobs which you think you can deliver on time. Select the online opportunities where you want to showcase and enhance your talents and skills so you can position yourself as an expert in that area of work.
1. Understand the job you’re applying for. You need to be certain about the scope of the skills needed in a particular job and check whether your skills are a perfect match to it.
2. Check your schedule. Again, don’t just apply for every job posting online. You need to check whether you’re able to deliver the job completely on time. You need to properly plan your schedule and consider all your other commitments, activities, and projects.
3. Show your client why you’re the perfect person for the job. In a perspective, you might be able to tell yourself that you can do a particular work but the thing here is how can you prove yourself to the client that you are indeed the perfect guy for the job.
You can use your social media profile, page, online portfolio to show off your skills and expertise. This way, you are making it easier for the client to decide.
4. Know not just the job but the client as well. Ask your client what exactly they are looking for and how will be the transaction, communication, project cost, deadline, revisions, and etc.. Don’t take the project if you think the job is not for you.
Sometimes you are perfect match for the job, but not perfect match for the client, and sometimes perfect match with the client but not perfect match with the job. You can weigh things along your conversation with the client.
5. Learn how to manage your time. Before applying for that job you just saw online, check your current schedule first. Are you taking too many jobs? Do you have some activities to attend to? Always have a calendar where you can easily see your availability.
