Job applications. Online or offline. What do you do?
We have talked about this previously too, but we've never really covered this exact topic, which is why I've published this discussion..
Let's face it, you don't really send job applications if you're working on SEOClerks for instance, except on the WTB section.. - But the WTB section is rather easy to use, and you don't really have to put in that much of effort to apply for a job.
That being said, do you think it would be better to send something more similar to a "real job application" whenever someone is looking to hire a freelancer on the WTB section?
I mean, someone creates something like this:
"I need a 500 word article for $5".
And you can see tons of people posting immediately with things like:
"I can do this for $5." or "I will give you 505 words articles for $3" etc. etc.
However, do you think it would benefit the sellers or the buyers, if they used a proper "job application" for that specific task instead?
And what do I mean with a "job application" then?
Well, just something more "serious" actually. Something where people are giving more background information and details about themselves and their previous tasks for instance.
What do you think? - Would you benefit from doing that or not?
