Once you find a job that you're interested in by using the "Search Jobs" feature, you'll have the opportunity to submit a proposal to the client. A proposal is essentially an application for the job and will allow you to tell the client about your skills and experience and why you're a good fit for their project.

How to submit a proposal

  1. Use the "Search Jobs" page to search for jobs that meet your requirements.
  2. Once you find a job you're interested in, click "Read More".
  3. Review the job description. If you meet the requirements specified by the client (skills, experience, location) and decide you'd like to submit a proposal for the job, click the "Submit a Proposal" button.
  4. A window will open where you can add your bid (USD) according to if it's an hourly paid project or a project with a fixed price, write a cover letter and answer the client's questions (if they've included any). Provide thorough and detailed answers to let the client know you have a solid grasp of the subject matter required for the project.
