When you are interested in a certain shift, you can apply for it. In most cases there are multiple people that respond to the same shift. The client then is the one who picks out the best candidate/candidates. As soon as the client has made their choice, you will receive an e-mail whether you’ve been assigned the shift or not.
We ask the clients to accept freelancers 24 hours in advance at its latest and this happens to be so in most cases. In the situation where it’s even later than that, it would advisable to give them a call to ask them of they could have a look at your application. This way you know what to expect.
Please note: You’re the one who’s responsible for your own applications. Always keep an eye on them on the platform next to the mails that you receive. If the e-mail were to end up in your spambox, it could mean you will be too late when you find out that you are expected to work to actually make it on time.
