Finding best remote worker / freelancer

All of us have tried to outsource our work at some point. It is a very difficult process to communicate your requirements and get the work of your choice in such situations. There are multiple reasons to fail but mainly it is poor communication & lack of commitment from both ends. It is very hard to initiate and maintain long distance relations.

Here is one technique that I use while picking the right remote worker/freelancer.

– Write a job description that you would generally write for a specific task

– Scout 6 people for the same task

– Analyze all of them & pick up the top 3

– Write another task & give it to the top 3

– Analyze & pick the top 2

– Write another task & give it to both of them

– Analyze & judge if you found the winner

– Repeat the last step by giving another task

– If the choice remains same, you found your gem

– If not, go for one more and pick the one who was best twice

You found the best talent. It might look an expensive exercise, but the cost of wrong hire is multiples of what you are going to spend in this exercise. It will also help you in improving communications.

This technique should work with local in-house staff too, but it might screw up the culture if you are a startup.

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know a lot approximately this, like
    you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with a few p.c.
    to power the message house a bit, but instead of
    that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring
    on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some
    stories/information. I know my readers would enjoy your work.

    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number
    of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have never outsourced or hired a consultant I never met. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts
    into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    After working with people on Fiverr, I think this technique is great if you have the budget

    I wanted to draft you that bit of word so as to thank you so much once again considering the stunning tricks you’ve shared in this case. It was so remarkably generous of you to grant without restraint what exactly numerous people would’ve marketed for an e-book to help make some profit for themselves, notably considering the fact that you might have tried it if you ever decided. The points in addition acted as the good way to recognize that most people have similar passion the same as mine to figure out great deal more in respect of this matter. I’m sure there are many more pleasant opportunities in the future for individuals who discover your blog.

    I simply desired to say thanks again. I do not know what I might have taken care of without the actual information shared by you regarding such a problem. It absolutely was a scary problem for me, however , taking note of the very specialised form you processed it forced me to weep with contentment. Now i’m grateful for this advice as well as hope you find out what a great job your are doing teaching other individuals via your site. I’m certain you’ve never got to know any of us.
