Is the freelance market really bad now? I can get any gig :(


  • It's a common problem also in sectors different from yours .In particular, I notice many, too many people who offer unpaid gigs and just as much willing to work for free thinking they have acquired a new client who instead at the next gig will look for other people willing to work for free and, sadly, they will find them.
  • Unfortunately the market does seem incredibly slow right now, so its not just you! I have seen multiple freelancers saying the same thing. I have had a really slow start to the year too, although it does seem to be picking up a little this month.
  • Hi flavia,

    I’m Jamil from The Dots! Here are my top tips to help you find work:

    1. Follow your favourite companies so you’re the first to know when they post jobs and call-outs:

    2. Build your network by connecting with people you already know, and people you want to know! (fun fact: 50-80% of jobs are filled through networking):

    Oh, and your newsfeed is the place to discover all the best opportunities to network, find work and more:

    I hope that helps!
