Posting a job on Guru is the first step towards hiring a Freelancer. Our job post form has been designed to capture your requirements and help you attract the most qualified Freelancers for your job.
However, to get the attention of the right Freelancers, it is essential that you share the job requirements in detail. The category, subcategory, and the skills that you select help the Freelancers find your job on Guru. The job title motivates the Freelancers to read your post and the job description helps them evaluate if they can deliver the work.
To know more about how you should fill the job post form to hire talented Freelancers, read our blog.
While the above elements of the job post form help you get the attention of Freelancers who are right for your job, to get Quotes from them it is important that you establish credibility on the platform.
