one of the possible ways of getting freelance work is through agencies, where I can help with the agency's clients, as many times they reach their regular employee capacities and need help. So they outsource me.
So, I'm applying to these agencies, and many times I meet the following obstacles:
- They need someone fulltime
- They need an employee
- They want you to relocate (apparently even during Covid...)
- They don't work with freelancers
Despite having 6 years of relevant experience, certifications, references, etc. Many times I won't even get to talk with the technical person to establish value, but a recruiter just shrugs me off. I wonder how you guys that work with agencies usually circumvent these problems. I appreciate your input. Thanks. 🙂
