Web Developer Interview

Web Developer
Dhaka (Bangladesh)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Freelancer in January 2010.

Interview Details – There is a clear hiring and interview process on that employment. At first people post a job on the web site to find a better and cheaper contractor . I usually bid on the web development job. Then they choose from a bunch of contractors like me. They make a short list. Than call for an interview. When they find the right guy. They hire. Here I always prefer to present me as a confident and well understood person and make my lower possible price to win the job.

Interview Question – What, if you leave the job on mid way?   View Answers (2)
