It's a good workplace for starting your career, but you could decide to move to other platforms because of the low pay. If you are good and lucky enough, though, you can find clients who value your work.

Difficult to source clients

Difficult to source clients. Would give them a higher score but it was never really of much help to me. Made a few bucks here and thre but that is just about it.

You just have to pitch to get works, working there is fun as it leaves you to decide when and how for each work you apply for. It can be hard to get a job tho.

They connect you to people looking for help. I met a lot of nice people and found some lucrative gigs. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to work from home.

Contract work

I set my own rates and schedule, work is pretty consistent once you start getting hired. I have been able to take short-term and long-term projects and build time around a full-time job, as well as make UpWork a full-time job depending on my circumstances.


Flexible schedule

I was a freelancer at upwork.

I was a freelancer not the employee of the upwork. Got to work with different projects over there. Upwork was a platform to get freelance job and we had to do all of other works.

Good freelance platfor

My overall experience has been pretty good. But now the competition has increased and also the recent change of connect bidding isn't that great. You have to spend significant number of connects to apply for any job.

Random experience

You need to have points un order to quote for jobs. You don't have much support and you need to be betting and quoting all the time. Sometimes, you get a good offer, though.

Good for temporary work

Working as a freelancer on Upwork has been an exhilarating and rewarding experience. The platform's vast opportunities and global reach have allowed me to connect with clients from diverse industries, broadening my skillset and horizons.The flexibility to choose projects aligning with my expertise and interests has been invaluable. Delivering high-quality work and witnessing client satisfaction soaring is incredibly fulfilling. The positive feedback and repeat clients speak volumes about the value I bring to their businesses.Collaborating with international clients has enriched my cultural awareness and communication skills. The diversity of projects has challenged me to constantly upgrade my knowledge and stay ahead of industry trends.Upwork's user-friendly interface and efficient support system make navigating projects a breeze. The secure payment system instills confidence and trust in every transaction.However, freelancing demands discipline, time management, and effective communication. Balancing multiple projects and meeting deadlines can be a juggling act, but the sense of accomplishment is immeasurable.Overall, Upwork has provided a gateway to professional growth, financial independence, and global exposure. The freedom to work remotely, choosing projects I am passionate about, and honing my skills makes it a platform I highly recommend for aspiring freelancers. My journey as an Upwork freelancer has been nothing short of extraordinary, and I am excited to see what the future holds!

Contract Sourcer

I loved working for Upwork. So much that I really hoped the role would turn into a permanent one. Contract and being remote can be challenging. I believe feeling a part of the team, recognized regardless of being contract is very important and beneficial to all parties.


My teammates, transparency, support and compensation


Contract Work felt disengage
