1. Dream Job or too good to be true?
Is the pay amazing and you have to do very little in return? As attractive as it may seem be wary of such dream jobs, particularly if you haven’t worked with the Clients before. If you have any doubts then as hard as it can be, it’s often safer to steer clear. Also be cautious of any clients requesting free samples of work or suggesting free trials with promises of larger work; if the samples in your portfolio aren’t sufficient then make sure to always send samples with suitable watermarks or in low resolution (if applicable).
2. Ensure convenient working agreement
Be sure that the work agreement such as Payment method, Job brief, Project timeline, travels etc.. are convenient enough before starting the project.
