Which freelancers do I find in Jellow?
Only freelancers from business services are affiliated with Jellow. More than 20,000 freelancers have already created a profile on Jellow and like to be approached by clients for great assignments.
Can every freelancer create a profile on Jellow?
The freelancers with a Jellow profile are screened for quality as much as possible. This is done in various ways. Many of our freelancers create a profile at the invitation of an employer, so there is already a reference. Freelancers can add reviews to their profile. These are given by former clients. For specific assignments, freelancers can even be checked by external experts. This expert ultimately determines whether a freelancer is eligible for a specific assignment.
Quickly create a shortlist of the most relevant and available freelancers. Invite them for your assignment in an instant or send them a message. Here too you can engage the Jellow matchmaking team. Then chat with the freelancers who respond via our built-in chat module. Finally, invite the best freelancers for an interview.
How quickly can I expect reactions?
On average, the first freelancers respond within 24 hours. You can always ask additional questions via the platform or immediately contact the freelancers. This can be done by telephone, e-mail or via the built-in chat function. We advise you to communicate via the chat as much as possible because that way you keep the overview, all relevant information stays central in one place and it is always accessible to your colleagues in case of sudden absence.
How long is the shortlist?
This varies per assignment, but you can assume that on average within 24 hours you will receive between 5 and 10 responses.
Who can see my assignment?
Your assignment is only visiblefor freelancers that we have selected. This ensures that you do not receive unnecessary feedback from freelancers who do not comply with your demands or are bothered by intermediaries.
You have found the ideal freelancer? Enter into an agreement directly or engage one of our recommended contracting partners. Then the collaboration can begin. Do not forget to share your evaluation of the freelancer so that he or she can also be admired by others. Good luck!
Be invited for freelance assignments
With a Jellow account you are found instead of the other way around. The employer makes a shortlist based on your profile and only these freelancers are invited to respond to the assignment. This makes Jellow more efficient and effective than other online platforms.
1. Create your profile easily
At Jellow you can create your profile within a few minutes. First choose your favorite / dominant area of expertise and then complete your profile. Upload your CV or ask to transfer your data from LinkedIn. We then ensure that this data is converted into a Jellow profile.
Can anyone see my profile?
Your profile is not public. This means that only the end customers that we have screened can see your full profile. Because of this you will not be unnecessarily bothered by intermediaries, but you will only be approached by end customers (employers). Other freelancers can not see your full profile.
How often do I have to update my profile?
Our system will communicate with you depending on your availability. We try to be as relevant as possible. This means that we will not ask you for your availability if you have indicated that you are working on your current assignment for a few more months. Of course you can always update or change your profile any time you want. You can easily do this yourself.
What kind of employers use Jellow?
Jellow is meant for freelancers and end clients. Anyone who wants to share an assignment with you through Jellow is screened by us in advance. In this way, we ensure that you are not bothered by intermediaries, but only receive relevant assignments from end clients. We are strict on this and check every client who wants to use Jellow.
Can I enrich my profile?
You can make your profile even more interesting by supplementing it with 'feedback'. You can easily invite former employers to give feedback. This feedback is visible to every logged as an employer. It is advisable to do this, because our experience is that clients attach great value to this.
2. Being approached by employers
Only Jellow employers can send assignments via Jellow to a shortlist of Jellow freelancers. You only receive the most relevant assignments and you belong to a small selection so that no 100 freelancers can respond to one assignment. Another important advantage is that only Jellow employers can view sensitive information such as contact details, rates and availability. All you have to do is keep this data up to date in one place. If you are interested, you can chat in all discretion with the employer via your Jellow accounts. If there is a match, you will be invited for an interview.
How do I respond to assignments?
When you are selected you will receive a mail with a link to the description of the assignment. You can also respond here. This can be extended or short-and-powerful. As you see fit. Even if you are not interested, you can respond briefly. Employers will appreciate it.
Can I determine the rate myself?
Of course you always decide whether you find the assignment interesting and what your conditions are. We strive to make the direct contact between you and the employer as quickly as possible. The employer therefore also directly contacts you for an introductory meeting. You actually determine everything yourself.
3. Get hired
If you are hired by an employer, you determine together how the hiring will proceed. Employers often have a fixed way of hiring. Sometimes they make the contracts themselves, sometimes they work with an external party that may or may not have been recommended by Jellow.
Do I pay extra for contracting services?
If applicable, these costs will be paid by the employer, unless agreed otherwise.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Jellow an intermediary?
No, we only link supply and demand. There is direct contact between the client and freelancers for an assignment. Our matchmaking software connects supply and demand in an efficient way. Actually, we offer the advantages of an intermediary, but without the disadvantages.
Which freelancers can you find via Jellow?
Jellow focuses on all independent entrepreneurs without personnel who provide business-to-business (B2B) services to companies or organizations based on temporary contracts, assignments or projects.
What does it cost to create an account on Jellow?
A Jellow account is completely free for freelancers. Clients pay for the use of the Jellow matchmaking software and/or services.
Am I immediately available to clients when I register with Jellow?
Yes! Provided you have filled in all your details after logging in and activated your account by clicking on the link in the activation mail. The clients in Jellow can find you and contact you directly for a nice freelance assignment.
Is my name and profile visible to the public and/or the entire Jellow network?
No, only for clients with a Jellow 24/7 account (matchmaking software) and for Jellow Go (matchmaking software) and Discovery (matchmaking test drive) clients if you have accepted their invitation to respond to an assignment.
There are relatively fewer Belgian than Dutch assignments on the website. How come?
First and foremost it is important to know that only public assignments are visible on Jellow. After all, most clients place closed assignments. These are only accessible to freelancers who were invited for that specific mission. This way, clients themselves can keep the number of reactions and thus their workload under control.
It is true that there are currently more Dutch clients and freelancers registered than Belgian ones. Jellow.nl has been active longer than Jellow.be. At present, nearly as many Belgian clients and freelancers are signing in on a daily basis compared to the Netherlands.
In any case, it makes sense to create a free Jellow account and to fully update your profile. After all, the great thing about Jellow is that clients seek and invite freelancers to respond to relevant assignments.
