With the release of new profiles in January, the way Employers search for Freelancers on Guru will also change. The main difference is that your services, rather than your profile, will show in search results. This means Employers with projects that match your specific skills and expertise will be able to find and hire you more easily. Be sure you show up first in relevant searches by using these three simple tips.

1. Create unique, marketable services.
Differentiate yourself from others with similar skills. Give each service a unique, keyword-rich name and description, and tag each service with related skills. The more you use relevant keywords, the higher you will rank!

2. Attach Work Collections to services.
Be sure to include tagged keywords on your Work Collections to add weight to related services in search.

3. Upgrade your membership.
If you are a paying member, you automatically get a bump in search. This is designed to help beginner freelancers who might have lower earnings through Guru.com.
