For Consultants / Freelancers it also important to see to what other Advisors Feedback has been given by a Client as they then can evaluate whether that Client has a history of consistent hiring and payment and whether they are fair in their assignments provided.
As a result Feedback serves as references for both parties when evaluating whom to work with in the future.
As a Consultant / Freelancer you can always request Feedback from Clients for work performed, independent of what type of Membership you have. However, the level of visibility of your Feedback received towards other users depends on the Membership plan chosen.
Clients can also give Feedback to registered Consultants / Freelancers at their own initiative, without being requested to do so.
