Someone asking you to work for free? This is how to handle unpaid project requests.

Before anything else, evaluate the request and the circumstances

Ask this question to find out how important the project is for them

“Who is going to pay for this?”

They will try to pitch this as an opportunity for you — ignore it

Refuse free project requests clearly
