Create the Perfect Opportunity Listing

Kaila Mathis

Hiring can be one of the most costly tasks in team growth, taking a toll on companies’ time, money and resources. But that’s why CLLCTVE exists: to allow you to source your perfect creator matches on-demand.

The key to expediting your creator search is by perfecting your opportunity structure, language and clarity from the get-go. That may sound easier said than done, but once you master these three steps, we can pretty much guarantee your results will improve exponentially.

Create a Clear, Concise Job Description

Job descriptions don’t need to be lengthy paragraphs describing every task included in the role. Instead, a direct explanation of the goal of the position, the key expectations of its commitment and the role’s tie to the company mission and vision will do more than enough.

Freelancers are busy. Whether they’re applying to jobs, working on projects, going to school, or anything else, it’s simply unrealistic to expect them to read endless job descriptions that don’t get to the point of what the job is and why they should want it. Focus on communicating a clear message - you’ll show applicants you value their time, and likely receive more qualified matches as a result of increased clarity.

Set Competitive Rates

In a booming creator economy filled with talent bursting with unique skills and experience and being bombarded with impressive opportunities, fair pay is no longer complementary - it’s necessary.

Do your research to determine industry-typical pay for the project you’re offering, decide if you should pay hourly rates or set rates, and stay open to negotiation with your chosen candidate if they wish to discuss it further.

Not sure if you’ve determined a fair price for your gig? Reach out to our team and we’ll help you find the right number.

Be Specific With Expectations for Skills and Experience

If the position you’re hiring for requires knowledge of specific tools, software, languages, skillsets or industry practices, state that from the beginning. The same goes for experience requirements, whether that means years in the role-type, industry or field of study.

This will ensure you only receive matches who fit your exact needs, expediting you past unnecessary rounds of portfolio reviews and interviews.
