New release "Modern working – for all contract types" May 30, 2012
With this release, we have extended our portfolio of contract types by the additional option “Permanent position”. This is the second step towards enabling our members to staff or acquire projects on a single platform, since project work is increasingly being carried out independently of the type of contract and the distinctions between different terms of employment are becoming blurred.
While introducing the additional contract type „Permanent position”, we offer you the possibility to get to know this contract type free of charge. Define the desired contract type in your project or profile to receive suitable matches: Freelance, Fixed Price, Permanent position.
New release "Contract types" May 15, 2012
projektwerk IT expands its portfolio and provides you with the possibility to publish your project at a fixed price or to carry out a project on a fixed budget as a freelancer. This marks the first step toward enabling you to staff or acquire projects regardless of the contracting type in the future, since project work is increasingly being done regardless of types of contract.
You can now choose between the contracting types “Freelance” and “Fixed price” in all projects and freelance profiles. As a freelancer, you can find projects using the classical contracting model or the fixed price model. As a project provider, you can publish projects ranging from the premium sector to the small fixed price project.
New release "Starter Membership" May 03, 2012
With this release, we have extended projektwerk IT to include a new type of membership: the starter membership.
As a starter member, you can use projektwerk IT more extensively than a basic member, starting from 8€ per month. The starter membership is worthwhile for you, if you wish to occasionally contact project partners proactively and publish projects or profiles on a small scale.
Your advantages as a starter member:
- Proactively contact up to 3 project partners per month – instead of just being able to be contacted as a basic member
- View other members´ unabridged project and profile information
- Receive detailed matching information about suitable project partners
- Bookmark interesting project partners
Additionally, you can:
- Publish one project or profile at a time
- Receive daily matching notifications about new and interesting project partners
- Refine your matches with a location and topicality filter
