Clients don't always know what is relevant to the job.  They expect the "expert" to know what IS relevant and be capable of communicating that effectively.

If they dont know what is relevant how they will choose the correct freelancer?

This is regressive questioning. 

 

You know, you could always just put "N/A" and be done with it.  That's what I do most of the time.

Hi,

yes, this is my question also . 

 

Thanks

Daniel, I see your point, but what professional would like to collaborate with a totally non-technical person, that should have hired a CTO by now. seriously. I had this experience in the past and it is like training the dog on how to use the vacuum cleaner.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like most clients are non-technical.  They want estimates on a paragraph that ammounts to a poorly formed, vague idea at most.  They should hire someone to help them develop a real plan, but then again, they don't know what they are doing...

By non-technical I refer to someone that doesn't even know what a framework is (at least a general idea). If we scroll through this feed, we'll mostly find people that understand some parts of their work and know how to screen the candidates prior to igniting the project with someone that took a totally irrelevant test.

It is not logical. Cover letter should be only about the project what a client required?
