Requesting new Freelancers

Modified on Sun, 27 Nov, 2022 at 8:05 PM

Whether looking for someone in a specific location or with a niche expertise, our Talent Recommendations feature will help you find the right person for the job. 


1. To access Talent Recommendations, login to Contently and click Talent at the very top of the product.


If you do not see Talent next to Calendar, Pitches, and Stories, check out Why can’t I access my top talent recommendations? to help troubleshoot the problem.


2. Now that you're on the Talent Recommendations page, click Create Talent Search.



3. Complete your the talent search as thoroughly as possible and hit submit when you are finished. 

4. Intelligent Talent Recommendations will analyze your request and instantly surface helpful suggestions.

5. If you are unhappy with the selections, click on "Custom Talent Request" and explain the issue to receive additional recommendations from our talent team. The recommendations chosen will populate on the ITR list with a badge labeled "Staff Pick" to easily identify.


Best practices when making a talent search: 

  • Fill out the entire form with as much detail as possible. These details will be sent to any contributor you invite to your publication.

  • Give your request a memorable title so that you’ll be able to find it easily in the future.

  • Create a new search for each type of content format; this helps us find contributors with the right skills and experience to complete the work.

  • Only select a specific language or location if this is absolutely required for your work as it might significantly reduce the number of recommendations you receive. 

  • If you request more recommendations from the Creative Marketplace Team, it can take up to 48 hours until you receive new freelancers. It may take longer if your request included specific language or location needs.
