Launching Bot Jobs Freelancers
In the vast majority of conversations that I have with people about jobs, I get asked 2 things, mainly:
Where can I find freelance opportunities?
Where can I build my Conversation Design Portfolio?
Well, I finally have the answer and it’s a natural evolution of the Bot Jobs offering to the Conversational AI community that I have been quietly building for some time.
I am so very excited to announce the public beta of Bot Jobs Freelancers.
Every freelancer profile also comes with the ability to create a public-facing portfolio.
The platform is currently free to use, so register today. The more people that register, the quicker we can get freelance opportunities onto the platform.
