Jobs without project description, so how to pitch?

Hello there,

I thought i share some information with anyone who may think the same.

As i scroll over the jobs lists, i always try to narrow down clients with jobs history, and there are plenty jobs without actual project description, only that they need someone with experience and its urgent, etc..

 

With this kind of JD. you cannot realy pitch, but you end up sending reapeated job proposals to plenty of those seamless jobs, what is the point.

 

Are those clients actually lookig to hire, or are they doing some analysis on the market..

I think it would be fair if the clients were required to presend their project, instead of a generic requirement, or if there was a differend job category,for those type of jobs? That would be nice..

 

What do you guys think...

They are usually either clients who are still learning the system and make mistakes, or clients who don't themselves know what they want.

 

Applying to these jobs is a crapshoot. I skip them 99% of the time; the 1% is when something in the job makes it seem especially suitable and I'm willing to gamble the 2 bucks. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Mostly though: skip 'em.

They're evidently assuming (generally not a good thing to do) that those qualified know that seo is search engine optimization and believe "nuff said."  lol

Pat,
LOL apparently they were right, the proposals are in the 10-15 range in less than an hour

And then people complain about running out of connects. ๐Ÿ™‚
