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.
