Creative Writer (Current Employee) – Fairport, NY – January 12, 2018
A day is spend bidding the projects a person as an individual would feel as they are capable of working. Upwork is an excellent company o work for, they protect their freelance writers according to working guidelines. They have a culture of zero tolerance to falsehood and forging of documents making it one of the best areas to for. Their jobs are not hard as they are clear to freelancers and the most enjoyable part of the job is being paid what one worked for.
Executive Assistant (Virtual Store Management) (Former Employee) – Santa Clara County, CA – January 8, 2018
Your opportunity to earn more is unlimited but the job security is very low since it was freelancing. Your client can cancel your contract anytime, but the Upwork customer service are always there to help you.
I would recommend Upwork for someone who wants convenience (home-based), flexible (set your availability) and stress-free (work at your own pace) type of work. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who's looking for job security or benefits.
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Online – December 26, 2017
Provides good platform in acquiring online jobs that will support the employee and its family. I have learned a lot of new things most especially in Graphic Designing where I have molded my talent in such platform.
The idea is good but with bidders who will accept less than one cent per word, clients choose based on price rather than quality. Good place to learn how to complete projects and work with clients. I have one monthly client I have written for since 2013.
Bidding system for writers and creative people to find clients.
Low bids below one cent per word makes it difficult to get quality wages.
Freelance (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 30, 2017
Upwork is a freelance organization that allows you to pick your own hours. It is very helpful for freelancers but it is also extremely competitive. It is tough to find clients at first but the more quality work you complete the better business gets.
