I do Jan 2, 2010

I am almost always underbid, so it's rare that I get stuck with more than I can handle. And I often work on two jobs at the same time. Even if I don't get the job, I figure it's just a good way to get my name out there and advertise my services.

Sometimes I do Jan 2, 2010

Even if I am in the middle of a job, but I got a job posted which is of my interest or I know the job poster, I try to bid for the job. Sometimes, I have experienced that my client has extended the deadline on my request.

Of course Jan 2, 2010

Cause "to qualify for a project" obviously includes also being available for the new project.
If I see that the deadline and the word count are impossible for me to handle, I don't bid.
That easy? Yes, that easy.
Happy New Year everyone
