The Human Resource department, or often called ‘HR’ works as a link between people and their organisation. Most businesses have a dedicated human resource department. While others prefer to outsource their human resource to professionals called HR consultants. It is also common that organisations with full time in-house HR search for the skills of HR freelancers to support on certain projects.

HR consultants or freelancers have a wide range of duties to fulfill because of which they are required to have good qualifications and experience in the field. Usually working independently, they are also expected to have a strong personality and self-driving energy.

Many new freelancers commit the mistake to do everything and work with all people. Remember the long-term goal for success is for you to build an authority in your niche. You cannot become an expert if you try to do everything at once. We will help to drive clients to find you but it is very much a “build it and they will come” strategy.

You need a more long-term sustaining strategy along with having referrals. Many freelancers focus on building their personal brands. However, in the beginning, focus on having a plan to market yourself. A strong image with a powerful marketing strategy investing time into business development and learning new skills outside of HR to accomplish this can take years.
