Dribbble has become a fantastic place to discover creative talent, and we’ve long been hearing success stories from Dribbble players who receive a steady stream of work requests via the site. We want to make connections between free agents and talent scouts even easier.
Today we’ve launched a new feature for Pro members, allowing them to indicate if they’re available for hire (this can be set on the Account/Pro page). When available, Dribbble pros have a “Hire Me” button on their profiles, allowing potential clients to contact them via email. Additionally, their player cards display an icon in the top right corner, showing that they’re available for work.
To see it all in action, check out this short screencast about the new feature:
To contact pros available for hire, you must be signed in at Dribbble. This helps employers have an identity in the community and provides members for hire with a measure of protection against spam. That said, starting today, we’ve made it even easier to join Dribbble as a spectator. A Twitter account is no longer required to create an account. Sign up is quick and easy.
On the heels of Player Cards, this is the second release in a progression to make it easier for Dribbble members get discovered and hired. Stay tuned for more.
