Episode 240: Quick Freelance Question Series | How long should my responses be for freelance job applications?




Hey there! On today’s Quick Freelance Question episode, I am sharing more with you about how long your responses should be for freelance job applications. 

There are many different routes to take to land freelance clients. A lot of times business owners will post a job posting and will have the job description, some requirements, and how to apply. There usually will be a form such as a Google form to fill out where the business owner will ask you questions. A question I often get asked is: “How long do my answers need to be?” Your questions need to fully and thoroughly answer their question but not super lengthly. You need concrete examples in there that show that you have done research and read the job posting. Use this space to highlight why you would be a great fit, show your strengths, and what you can bring to the table for their business.

Be sure that you have done your research and your responses speak to that specific business owner to show that you are truly interested in that particular job.

More about the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn:

How do I get started? What if I fail? Who will hire me? Is it really possible to create a consistent, full-time income from home?

Welcome to the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn where we will be answering these questions PLUS many more! Whether you’re just starting your freelance business (heck even if you don’t know what freelancing is yet) or you’re looking to scale, this podcast will give you tangible business advice along with inspiring interviews to help you create a life and career that works for YOU and YOUR family.

Your host, Micala Quinn, started out teaching high-school English, but when her first child was born, she immediately began searching for something more. She wanted a way to stay-at-home with her daughter (and future babies), but still needed to bring in a full-time income to help support her family. Micala started freelancing, quickly replaced her full-time income, and now helps other moms (like you) get started and grow their freelance business from scratch to 5K and beyond! She believes that being a working mom or a stay-at-home mom no longer needs to be a black and white decision. You CAN have both. On your terms!

Our motto is Mom Strong, Work Smart, and Live Free. Are you in? We’d love for you to join us each Monday, as well as in our Live Free Podcast Facebook community!
