Does The Freelancer screen freelancers?
We have several measures in place to ensure The Freelancers is a fair and reliable marketplace. We use multiple means to verify that freelancers are who they say they are. Information is also displayed that gives you a sense of each person’s skill level. In part, this includes:
- Authenticating email addresses
- Displaying each freelancer’s Job Success score and feedback on past projects
Ultimately, it’s your responsibility to screen prospective freelancers to make sure their skills and experience meet the needs of your project. Custom screening questions can be included in your job post, and The Freelancers Messages provides chat and video conference tools for interviewing finalists.
