PRACTICAL TIPS AND TRICKS
Because we know the Techloop system inside out, let us take you through how to get the most out of your contract selection and what to avoid.
If you chose the ‘Freelance’ option on your Techloop profile, it’s especially important to fill in your desired salary. Companies are often afraid that freelancers will ask for a lot of money so if they don’t know how much you’re after, they might overlook you, which would be a great shame!
On the other hand, if your paycheck demands are on the higher side, don’t be afraid to set your desired salary accordingly. Companies will take your preference seriously, the ones for whom you are outside of their budget won’t get in touch, but others will, those who appreciate that your desired salary is a reflection of your seniority.
FOR THE UNDECIDED
Even you have no real preference as whether you work full-time or on a freelance basis, on your Techloop profile you have to choose one or the other. In this case, it’s probably best for you to select ‘Full-time”. Companies which prefer freelance IT professional still won’t be afraid to contact those who have marked ‘Full-time”. However, this doesn’t work the other way around, as employers may fear that freelancers won’t be interested in classic, full-time employment.
The bottom line is that Techloop is for every talented IT professional, regardless of your preferred contract type. So don’t waste any more time and create your anonymous profile today.
You have nothing to lose and much to gain ;).
