When sharing your profile and experience to the industry, it’s only natural that you want to let the whole world know that you’ve built great relationships and established admiration and trust with previous employers.

There is no doubt that getting an endorsement from a company or individual is a powerful indicator of this credibility and trust.  It provides direct proof which carries a lot of weight and is generally preferred by employers. 

Introducing Endorsements

At Cavalry we decided made the process of collecting endorsements super simple and easy for freelancers. You can now request people you’ve worked with to endorse you for specific specialisms. 

Companies reviewing your profile can then see these endorsements next to your specialisms. The more credible endorsements you have, the more credible you will appear to prospective employers. 

By adding endorsements, you can stand out from other freelancers as an expert in your field, and give companies that extra bit of confidence that you are the right fit for their gig.

Getting started

Go to your references and start a new request 

Add the details of your referee and the specialisms you want endorsed:

The Company then receives and email and confirms the endorsement and can even add comments to your endorsement:

You’ll get an email when they have completed the reference, so jump back in, check it and (if it’s a good one) make it public!

 

 

 

Just a quick tip:

We want to maximise your chance of success so it’s always good idea to get in touch with the referee first to let them know it’s on the way.

Jump on in today, it won’t be long before you’re getting more of those “look how great I am” moments and getting in front of that next company or gig.

Are industry forces driving up freelance demand?

By Dave Bentley, CEO

If current industry conditions really stretch agency staffing needs like they appear to, it's likely that freelance demand will continue to increase regardless of the efforts to drive more internal efficiency. This in turn will increase the relative importance of freelancers within agencies and encourage consideration of how to create a competitive advantage in how quality freelancers are found and engaged.
