  7. Next, you'll define the job requirements: select an expertise for your job - this is the specific area of work your job will focus on; select the independent contractor's level of experience you are looking for and the English proficiency. You can also specify any required skills the independent contractor must have, if you prefer independent contractors based in a particular location, and you can even add questions to your job post to better assess the applications received.

  8. On the next page, you'll see a preview of your job post, and if you are happy with the post, you can simply click "Post your job now".
