A PDF Profile is a professional document, which provides an opportunity to the prospective client(s) to
know about products and services which an individual or a company offers.
PDF profiles can be used when approaching clients through freelance platforms, ad posting websites, and
online job posting websites. When a freelancer sends the PDF file, this file goes to the employer’s
email/inbox and remains there until the employer deletes that file.
It also serves as a reference of a freelancer or a company to the prospective client.
