How to Get Your First Job

How we are looking at our lives right now is like living in a digital world that’s always connected. And the first step in any career is to make sure you get to know how that world works. I’m not talking about how to use a computer or how to put up a Facebook page. But rather how to build relationships with people.

The job market has changed a lot over the past few years. Gone are the days when you could rely on getting a full-time job after graduating. Nowadays, the number one source of income is freelancing.

Freelancing isn’t for everyone. It requires more than just knowing how to write code. You must be able to manage projects, manage clients, and manage yourself. If you’re ready to start freelancing, here are some tips to help you land your first gig.

If you want to get into the music industry, there are a few things that you will have to get right. This guide will give you a thorough overview of everything you need to know to get your first job in the music industry. Whether you are just starting or are currently working as a musician, I’m sure you’ll find something here that will benefit you.


Getting Started

So you’re looking to start freelancing but are unsure where to start. It would be best to consider a few things before diving head-first into the freelance pool.

  • What kind of freelancing do you want to do?

Are you interested in design, coding, or writing? Each has its own set of skills that you’ll need to master.

Is it something you’ve done before, or is it brand new? You may need to try out a few different things to find what you’re best at.

  • How much are you willing to charge?

Is it worth your time? There are a lot of freelancers who charge more than their clients expect. Is it worth it?

  • Are you willing to work on commission?

You might be better off charging by the hour. If you’re willing to work on a fixed fee basis, you can earn more and enjoy flexibility.

  • Are you ready to work on your own?

Freelancing is a lot of work. Do you have the time to devote to it?

  • How much do you need to earn?

Are you looking to make enough money to live on, or will you invest your earnings?

  • How does freelancing fit into your life?

Do you have a good support network? Do you need to spend time away from family and friends?

Before you start, ensure you’re willing to put in the time and effort to succeed.


Don’t ask questions that don’t matter to you, and don’t pretend to know something you don’t.

Don’t be afraid to ask about company culture. If they are a small startup, they may not even have one. But asking questions about culture can help you determine if this is the right fit for you.

Another thing to remember is that you don’t need to know every single detail about the company. There will always be things you don’t know, but a good interviewer will understand that.

Most importantly, having a professional appearance during the interview would be best. Show up on time and dress appropriately. If you’re going to wear a suit, make sure it’s clean. Don’t wear a T-shirt or a hoodie.

Follow Up

It’s easy to think that you’ll never hear back if ou doesn’t follow up immediately, but the reality is that you can send follow-up emails at any time. Following up is one of the most important things you can do to get more work.

So how do you follow up?

The best way is to use a tool such as Handy. Handy is a simple email management system that allows you to manage your emails, reply to them, and schedule them to send later.

Once you’ve set up your Handy account, you’ll be able to reply to all your emails from one dashboard. Then you can send messages based on the subject line.

Handy also has a feature that tracks how often you receive replies to your emails.

When you’re done with your follow-up, you can mark your emails as done. They’ll disappear from your Handy dashboard, but you’ll still receive any replies.

Getting Noticed

A simple tip for getting noticed is to make sure you’re well-known. The more known you are, the more you’ll be approached by potential clients.

To get noticed, do something that makes people know who you are. Maybe you’ve done a ton of work on a particular project, or perhaps you’re well-known for a skill you possess.

Regardless of what it is, you should always be able to explain how it’s useful to someone.
