Trying to find a job or attract clients as a freelance worker can be incredibly stressful. Money is, of course, a major concern when you are searching for work but you will also have concerns over finding the right company and role which will allow you to have an enjoyable, valuable and successful career. Finding a job or securing clients is a case of putting yourself out there and being persistent which can be difficult. Fortunately, there is a lot of great advice for job seekers and freelance workers which should help you to navigate this challenging time and soon find the work that you need.


Online Presence

In today's day and age, it is essential that you have an online presence if you want to find a job or secure new clients as a freelance worker. This should include:

-A professional website which acts as an online CV

-Social media presence without anything non-professional visible

-Profiles on job boards

You should then use the internet to search for vacancies, contact companies that you want to work with/for and generally make your presence felt. 


Network

While it is essential that you have a strong online presence, you should not overlook the value of networking offline too. Many job seekers and freelance workers find this intimidating but it can be an excellent way to make connections and meeting people face-to-face will always be more memorable. Network at every opportunity and you will find more and more opportunities that present themselves.


Keep Costs Low

When you are looking for work or trying to attract a new client it can take its toll on your finances which will only lead to more stress and pressure. During this period, you need to find ways to keep your costs as low as possible. Ink cartridges can be a big expense for those in certain industries but you can make savings on Epson ink simply by shopping online.


Develop Skills

If you are struggling to find work, then you may need to think about developing your skills. This could be something specific to your industry where you could earn a qualification or it could simply be a case of developing your soft skills or interview skills. This should help you to stand out from the crowd and could allow you to earn more money too.


Look After Your Wellbeing

When you are trying to find work, it can be very easy to neglect your health. This is a stressful and worrying time but you need to make sure that you look after yourself. This will involve:

-Getting enough exercise

-Eating a healthy diet and drinking enough water

-Getting enough sleep

-Socializing

-Finding ways to relax

It can be tough when you are trying to find a new job or secure work as a freelancer. This post should help you to reduce stress while improving your chances of finding rewarding work. It can take time, effort and thick-skin but hopefully it will not take too long for you to find what you are looking for.
