Going freelance - where to find your contracts

Thursday 06th June 2013

When starting out most freelance contractors use recruitment agencies to find their first few contracts. Over time you will build up a base of clients who will start coming straight to you. It is always a good idea to ensure your CV, show-reel or portfolio is fully up-to-date - this will really help you to secure that next contract.

The web is becoming more and more important in the contracting and freelance world. We recommend that you source a domain name that is relevant to your business trading name e.g. www.jct-designs.co.uk. You can then run this as your email address e.g. tom@jct-designs.co.uk which is more professional than using tom@hotmail.com

Doing this also allows you to set-up a small but well designed website to show potential clients exactly what you specialise in. This is a great way of getting your CV and portfolio out there and can easily be shown on your LinkedIn profile where literally hundreds of recruitment consultants will have a chance to see it.
