Many consultant platforms highlight the matching method and how it guarantees that clients get the most suitable consultant for a freelance assignment. As a consultant, it’s just as important to find a freelance assignment that’s a good match for you. If you’re new as a freelancer, a consultant platform that helps you find new freelance assignments is the way to go.
If you just started working as a consultant, and never worked as a freelancer before, it can feel overwhelming. Where can I find freelance assignments? Do I have to be registered on all relevant platforms – or should I pick one? Verama is a new consultant platform and marketplace where several clients publish their assignments. By registering, you automatically get a head start on your path towards new assignments!

Show Verama what freelance assignments interest you. Verama will register what assignments you look at, and find other similar jobs. The system can – if you’re active – help you and suggest relevant assignments. Thus, showing interest increases your chances of finding a freelance assignment.
5. Apply to all interesting freelance assignments
The only thing you need to do when you find a suitable freelance assignment is to click apply, but make sure you've filled in your information first. Some freelance assignments also require follow-up questions specific to the assignment.
How does Verama stand out?

By registering in Verama, you reach a vaster range of freelance assignments on the same platform. You’ll save a lot of time since you don’t have to be active on several consultant portals.
