What kind of missions can I find on your platform?
You can find all types of missions in Belgium, Switzerland, Luxemburg and some other remote missions in other countries. Either part-time, full-time, on-site, remote. Our clients are looking for IT and Digital profiles: data scientists, developers, business analysts, copywriters, marketeers, project managers, ...
The missions are updated every week and depend on our clients needs.
I don’t have any work experience; can I still find a mission on your platform?
Of course! We would be happy to help you find your first assignment! Our clients have multiple demands and they offer different types of missions.
How will I be notified when a mission matches my profile?
As soon as you have a matching rate of at least 60%, you will receive an email to notify you. That’s why it is important to have a qualified profile. If you match with less than 60%, you won’t be notified, and you will need to be more proactive on the platform to find what you are looking for.
Make sure to check your spam so you don't miss any opportunities!
I don’t find any mission matching my profile, how does it come?
To enjoy the full potential of the algorithm and the platform, it is important you fill all your skills in (soft and hard) and you add your language knowledge. Based on your skills, the algorithm will scan the missions and will calculate a matching rate. The higher the match, the better you fit the mission. We also advise you to upload your resume so the client can have a view of your entire career. You can also add the links to your portfolio and social media.
I have a low or 0% matching rate, but I’m convinced that the mission matches my profile and needs, what can I do?
If you have a low matching rate, it can mean that your profile isn’t complete enough. A little tip: check the skills asked in the missions, and if they correspond with your background, add them to your profile. It is important to have general skills as well as specific skills.

What happens after I applied to a mission?
When you apply to a mission, the client receives your profile and your resume. He also gets access to your social media links.Once he analyzed your application, he will send you a chat message and give you positive or negative feedback. If it’s positive, you will go to the next phase of the recruitment process. If it’s negative, you will get the details of his decline. You will be notified by email as soon as you receive a message, check your spam box!
I applied a few days ago but didn’t get any feedback. What can I do?
If you don’t have a feedback after 72H, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do a follow-up.
The daily rate is below my expectation, is it negotiable?
The daily rate mentioned in the mission is an indicative rate that the client proposes. Once you applied to the mission, you get in contact with the client and can negotiate your rate and conditions.
Does Beelance take a commission on my daily rate?
We don’t take any commission on the freelancers’ salary. The platform is totally free. Our business model is based on a subscription fee that our clients pay in order to hire good candidates.
What does « partial remote » mean?
Partial remote means that the client is flexible and open to remote work. Feel free to discuss in detail the work conditions directly with them.
How can I directly contact the recruiting company?
When you apply, you can send a first chat message to motivate your application, introduce yourself or ask your questions. If the client is interested in your profile, he/she will reach out via the chat. You will be notified by email as soon as your application status has been updated.
How can I complete my skills?
You can complete your skills manually, by adding them one by one. You can also import the data of your LinkedIn profile into your Beelance profile. After the import, you need to check the information and to correct them if needed.
What’s the difference between a hard and a soft skill?
A hard skill is a technical skill you learned, or you keep learning. It is something you can master and practice.
A soft skill is more a character trait, or a quality linked to your personality. Soft skills are also called “people/interpersonal” skills.
How can I score my skills?
We understand it’s not always easy to give a score to your skills, but you need to trust yourself and be confident. You can score 1 to your skill when you have a basic knowledge of it. A score of 3 can be used when you have a medium knowledge of the skill. A score of 5 can be used when you feel an expert in this field.
Can the client access my profile and resume without my permission?
The client can only get access to your information when you apply to his mission. Beelance isn’t a CV database and doesn’t want the freelancers to be contacted without their permission.
What does the badge "verified profile" mean? How can I get it?
