Attract potential employers with the good words from a previous client. You can select a specific review and highlight it on the top section of your profile page.
The Corporate Portfolio allows you to organize your items by grouping them into different categories. The customizable portfolio categories make it easier for employers to find your sample projects related to the work they need to get done, which also increase your team’s chances of getting hired.
Employers like working with freelancers who reply to messages quickly. This feature shows how active you are in communicating.
Corporate Bid Card
Stand out from the crowd by letting employers learn about your business and preview your portfolio when you bid on their projects. The Corporate Bid Card shows your business name, Corporate badge, company tagline, message responsiveness, and most importantly, your instant portfolio.
This instant portfolio is an array of icons that when hovered, employers will see a sample of your work on the related category. They’ll find out right there and then what you can do for them, giving you a huge advantage early on the bidding stage.

Once you’ve ended your Corporate subscription, your corporate account will be converted to a Personal account. You may continue your Corporate Membership at any time by going back to the Membership section in the Settings page.
