Hiring freelancers is a great way to gain the manpower—and expertise—you need without hiring full-time employees. Follow these tips to hire a freelancer for your team:

  1. Test candidates. Collect résumés and work samples to narrow down your selection pool. Once you have pared your list to 5-10 candidates, test them on an actual work assignment.
  2. Choose the best. Do a side-by-side comparison of the tests. Pick the two or three candidates who do the best work and then schedule interviews.
  3. Make more work contingent on success. Let freelancers know that you’ll use the first project as a trial. If it goes well, you will assign additional work.
