  • Guru dot com question . . .

    I learned about guru.com on this site and have registered there as a basic user. I have filled out the profile and have started receiving email notices about jobs that fit my profile. All this is very exciting, and I want to take the next step to become a Guru/Vendor status.

    Ok, finally my question:

    Does anyone else here use this site for freelance work? How reliable is it for consisistant work? I'm ready to take the next step and up my freelance load to become (hopefully) full time. How hard is the bidding process? Anyone with info, please share as I don't want to spend any unneccesary money that leads to a dead end.

    Thanks!!

    hey,
    I am not sure about guru.com but I did subscribe for a month on selectadesigner.com
    i did not get anythign from it in that one month period. I found that people would bid, whic they would make really low unrealistic bids. and each job had aend date but all the ones i even bid on the end date passed and it was never closed... not sure what was going on scam maybe I am not sure, i didnt really look into it before i subscribed, i thought i would try it out for a month and if nothing happen then cancel.
    You never know you could get one job from it and that would make up the costs for the subscription.
    take care and good luck.

    Michelle, P.R.G.D.

      Here is a blurb from the job

      'We are looking to establish an ongoing relationship with a skilled graphic artist. Most of our training programs use powerpoint slides as visual reinforcement, and most really need to be updated and made to look more professional. This particular project supports a 90 minute training program we will deliver in early March. However, it is a precursor to a larger version of the program that we would like to develop. Ideally the graphic artist will transition from one project to the next.'

      One thing I'm not sure about is how guru works. I need to invoice through guru per job. This lists additional work and I don't know if that would require guru's billing system or my own.

          Good point, but in my opinion it's distracting in a portfolio and lacks attention to detail when displaying work.

          Ha, I noticed the printing and registration marks and thought it refreshing to see a designer who knows to include them....

          One of the problems with in-house situations is that, as often as not, the upper management's expertise lies in areas other than marketing, communication or creative. Worse still, is that they don't know...

          This might come across as a snobbish perspective. And I do work in a very weird corner of the design industry, where the theatrical/digital/print world all intersect.
