Tips For Writing Your Job Description

Here's an interesting statistic:

75% of the pitches for jobs online are from freelancers who are not qualified to do the work

Why?

Because the description doesn't clearly explain what the client wants, so freelancers pitch in hoping that the work might match their skill set.

On Twine, we manually vet all the pitches that a client receives to make sure you don't have to spend hours filtering out unqualified freelancers.

But it's still really important to make your brief stand out by being clear and concise.

Clearly-written job briefs allow animation experts to quickly scan your requirements and determine if they're a good fit for your project before getting in touch.

When writing the animator's job description, make sure to include the following:

  • Who you are
  • What you need (and why)
  • The size of your project
  • Your vision for the project
  • Examples of styles you like
  • Target audience
  • Budget
  • Deadline
