When you write online as a freelancer you can verify your skills on many of the more popular websites using a skills test. The skills test allows you the opportunity to showcase what skills you have against the results of other professionals in your field. You can display the test results on a profile which future clients can review before they hire you. Some of the skills tests include:

  • academic writing tests
  • article writing tests
  • grammar and spelling tests for different languages (this is intended for translation services)
  • blogging best practices tests
  • business writing tests
  • copywriting tests

  • Journalism tests
  • Medical transcription tests
  • Microsoft word tests
  • Press release tests
  • Report writing tests

  • U.S. English proofreading tests

Of course there is a range of tests offered for all different skills and categories online and some can be integrated into a writing portfolio such as standard SEO tactics or a test for powerpoint or other computer software. This is especially important if you plan on providing web content that you must upload and edit on a live website.

The reason it is important to take skills tests is because you increase your chances of getting hired by three fold. Studies show that clients are more likely to hire freelancers who have tested skills that relate to the potential job. Using tests sets you apart from your competition.
