    2. Title

    When viewing a freelancer profile, the first thing clients see is the title. This is an important part but is often written sketchy because it seems pretty simple. However, it affects the customer’s interest in deciding whether or not to continue to see your profile.

    Employers recommend that your title should:

    - Simple and concise: Choose the keywords that show your work and goals in the most direct way.

    - Be specific: Your title should be less than 10 words, but it must be suitable for your job and goals. You can highlight the title with terms like “expert” or some extra supporting categories.

    3. Summary

    The summary will provide short information about the qualifications and achievements that candidates achieved, in a flash. In the first of one to four sentences, you should highlight your most relevant core strengths, skills, and capabilities that are unique to you as a candidate. If you write a good summary, you will be the company’s talent.

    A good summary includes:

    - Your core strengths and core skills are most relevant to the job you want to perform.

    - Past relevant experience with key skills.

    - Remarkable achievements in the past and your future goals.

    4. Education

    Tell your customers about your education background. List the name of the school you studied and your major in chronological order with a recent degree at the top. Information about education is important, even if it may not be relevant to what you are doing.
    If you do not have formal education, it does not matter, you can add self-taught education.

    5. Experience

    While images, titles, and summaries are the first parts that employers notice and decide whether or not to read your profile, the work experience is the deciding part. Here are some tips to help you improve how your work experience looks.

    When clients screen freelance candidates, they want to know:

    - What are your main skills which you apply for each project?

    - How you apply your skills to that project (examples)?

    - The achievements you have made in working with that role.

    Work experience example

    Concentrate your main tasks and skills on the project or company. The tip is to add examples and the value of the project rather than just listing skills.

    On the other hand, if you have updated your experience on LinkedIn, you can select the “Import from LinkedIn” button to transfer the data to your profile on Getdone.

    6. Portfolio

    This part is more important than other categories. It will include information about previous projects you have made which will help employers have evaluated the quality of your work capacity exactly.

    Write the best description of what you did on this project. Consider the three elements below:

    Describe your client’s goal.

    Describe the details about your work to accomplish your client’s goal.

    The results of the project.

    7. Skills

    Choose the skills which you have and put the main skills in the first. Make sure your skills match your title, summary and job history.
