Freelancing contractors should always be looking for more work, and that means having a solid resume. To describe your past freelancing work on your resume, it’s a good idea to do the following:
- Have a clear title. Make certain you represent yourself exactly as you want to be perceived. Take the time to perfect the description of your expertise.
- List about six to 12 skills related to your title, in order of your proficiency.
- Create bullet points for about six examples of your best and most recent work, quantifying as much as possible. As an example: “Developed a social network-based mobile game for Company XYZ in 12 weeks, three weeks under schedule and $4,000 under budget.”
- Repeat these steps for all relevant skills sets. For example, you may have one section on graphic design skills, another on programming skills and another on technical writing.
