Internal recruiters and direct-hirers on LinkedIn jobs should be your last resort if you’re serious about landing a freelance role!
Don’t forget, direct-hiring clients and their internal recruiters don’t source work for freelancers for a living, like we do. Often, your CV as a freelance candidate probably won’t ever get looked at, especially for those openings which are also advertised internally.
Us specialist, external agents live and die by filling jobs, and there is no one more highly motivated to fill that job! Remember, a good recruiter will finesse, explain, persuade, negotiate, influence and hound on your behalf on a free of charge basis. Conversely, when you apply direct-to-client, you are missing out on the most important part of the recruitment process. For true freelancers, it’s to be avoided at all costs!
