If you’re a freelancer then you know that projects can be hit or miss.

Every now and then you’ll sign on to one that is expertly managed with clear expectations, defined roles, and communication channels that you can count on. Others can be chaotic with expectations that change daily, objectives that don’t line up, and workflows that leave you scratching your head.

But what if they didn’t have to be hit or miss? What if there were questions that you could ask ahead of time that could help you vet clients just as much as they vet you?


That’s why Braintrust created The Freelancer's Project Fit Checklist.

It’s designed to help you take the interview process beyond questions about skill requirements, timelines, and pay cycles to evaluate whether or not a project is right for you.

When you’re done reading it, you’ll know how to:

  • Quickly vet clients based on their company culture and onboarding process
  • Ensure that the team is aligned on expectations, deliverables, and deadlines
  • Confirm that the client has clear and consistent payment practices

And the best part? This checklist isn’t just written for Braintrust talent. It’s written by Braintrust talent. Because when it comes to choosing your next project, you shouldn’t have to guess whether or not it’s going to work out.
