Upwork.com is an online platform that companies can use to connect with and hire freelance online workers for short-term “gigs” or long-term roles. It can be a great option for you and your firm to hire remote assistance.
The process of posting a job on Upwork is quite simple, although you first must set up an account for your company – the administrator for the account will have to do this. But once you are all set you just have to click on “Post a Job” on the dashboard and follow the prompts.
These are the steps you will go through to get your job posted:
- It will first ask you to select whether this is a short-term or a long-term position.
2. Then you will have to write the Job title- Upwork will suggest you some categories for the job based on the title.
3. Next you will have to select a list of skills for the position, you can include as many as you want including language.
Having a language skill in the description will be beneficial if your Immigration Law Firm is bilingual and you are looking for someone with particular language skills.
4. Then it will ask for the length of the project and a level of experience. Here you can choose if you are looking for someone who is entry-level that you will like to train or someone with more experience.
5. The next step will be to select a location where you want the prospective worker to be located. This option will let you choose if you want someone local or someone located in any part of the world. You will be able to choose a region or country.
6. Next step is the Budget. Now, this section will allow you to select an overall project budget, or instead to provide an hourly rate with the expected weekly work hours.
As a plus, you can use the platform as a time-tracking tool once you have hired someone for the job.
7. Finally, you will write out your job listing. It is important to be clear in the job description and specify if this will be a closed role with very specific tasks or an open role, where tasks can vary.
Once you have posted your job listing you will be able to go back and edit it, as well as saving it as a draft to use in the future.
