    What clients and freelancers say about challenges of the traditional agency model.

    "To really get breakthrough solutions you need diversity of thinking and you need diversity of experience."

    Susan Kelly
    Head of Internal Communications

    "Being hired by a DAX company or by a big international cooperation is difficult or close to impossible."

    Carsten Bohn
    Senior Project Leader

    Good to know

    • What kind of clients does COSYN work with?
      Our clients are all kinds of organizations with challenging projects that pertain to internal or external communication. These can range from big to medium-sized companies from the B2B or B2C sector, as well as startup incubators, associations or NGOs. Typically, our clients have an internal team of 5-10 employees in their communications department and are used to working with external support.
    • How do you select the right freelancers for a project?
      Since we know each and every one of our freelancers personally, we are able to identity the best fit for any given task and client team. Our matching process is not based on an automatic algorithm: First, we take the time to thoroughly understand our clients' project and culture. Then, we are looking for the perfect candidates in our Community, taking into account skills, personalities, team fit, industry experience and many other criteria (e.g. language, mobility).
    • What makes COSYN's freelancers the best of the best?
      Our biggest priority is to work with freelancers of outstanding quality. We spend a lot of time working through our selection process. We primarily recruit people we have either worked with directly or who come to us through a personal recommendation from an existing member of the community. Each applicant then goes through a multi-stage selection process which includes a written application, in which we check motivation and personality. If that proves to be a fit, there will be an extended personal interview, where we compare both professional expertise and personality with our values. At the end, we perform trial work and obtain references. This gives us a well-rounded sense of who we’re working with.
    • Do I have to pay COSYN when working on a project?
      No. Clients pay 20% commission on each freelancer's day rate. You pay nothing!
    • Does COSYN influence the amount of my day-rate?
      No, you decide that completely on your own.
    • Where does a project take place?
      This varies from client to client. In some projects, working on-site makes a lot of sense, e.g. if a deep understanding of the customer's corporate culture is important for the success of the project. For other projects, however, regular meetings (either on-site or via video conference) are sufficient. You will be informed about the specific customer requests prior to each potential project – so you can decide whether this is suitable for you.
