With each new year the number of people who want to work as self-employed professionals has been steadily increasing, as the pursuit of financial freedom has never been more sought after by the new generation.
And just as with each new year the number of freelancers keeps increasing, so getting a freelance job is getting pretty tough as many are the competent and proactive professionals in the worldwide freelnacing market.
Today I want to tell you how I did my first freelance job.
The great truth is that for beginner Freelnacers, getting the first job is the hardest part because of employers’ credibility; because some employers prefer certified Freelnacers within the platforms where they work, where their profiles are already full of work done, enviable appraisals and even more with impeccable services.
Just like any beginner freelancer, I couldn’t break the rule of suffering for me; I also suffered to get my first job, but both surprisingly, was the way I was asked to do the first job.
When I started my target platforms were Upwork, Fiverr and Freelnacer.com. Believe it or not, this is not where I got my first job, I’m already tired like any beginner, because beginners have these problems of giving up quickly. It was then that out of nowhere I get an email for a freelance service, I wondered will it work? The client wanted a brand logo, since I am a Designer and many other things, I made a sample, and emailed him to evaluate, at the same moment the guy said I’ll get this, finish it, then I said there is. pay now? The client requested the form of payment, I sent my email from Payoneer and the guy paid $ 95.60, something unimaginable to me, first online job, in April 2018.
I was then making my first freelance online gain after a hard 5 months trying to find something to earn online. As I said, earning for the first time is not easy even more now as the number of freelancers is increasing with each passing day, with the revolution of new cryptographic trends, the number of freelancers looking for a free life has increased.
Who wouldn’t love to work at home? Like your wife, kids, going to the bar, shopping, and hanging out with friends even while working? A freedom, and you can do it too. My advice is that do not worry about the difficulties, just keep following your desire, you will get it soon, because work always has, but Freelancers there is more, but there is always something for you.
