Freelance Your Skills with upWork

Hello my darlings, and thank you for reading! Once again I have been doing some research on how to get great exposure for those of us that do not like to work inside the traditional workforce -- ie, wanting to work for ourselves rather than someone else. I have had the pleasure to speak with a few freelance and independent contractors and it seems like there has been a resounding trend to where they recommend people that are just beginning to start. That answer was UpWork -- formerly known as oDesk.


UpWork apparently isn't new to the freelance market, but it has seemingly been getting a substantial amount of growth in these past couple of years. Upon initial inspection, it seems like the site has quite a lot to offer for a huge range of freelancers and business owners alike. The platform gives you the option of whether you are looking for work or looking to hire your own team of freelancers. 


Of course, I was also taken in by the bright colors and the sheer beauty of the user interface, so I went ahead and joined. They ask you standard questions to sign up for the platform: Your personal information like a phone number, email, cover letter, and resume. All of this information is held confidentially unless you choose to display it on your profile. 


After a few days of use, what I can say I really like about this platform is that they really do focus on the quality of both those looking to hire and those looking for work. There a few quizzes that you can take that will exhibit your proficiency in certain areas, just in case you do not have the experience on your resume to back up your knowledge. As far as being an employer, when you hire on the website, you can earn certain "levels" when your companies pays out your freelancers.


The most important thing on the site that I enjoy is the rating system. Employers are able to give freelancers a rating out of five stars and vice versa. This allows you to see honest to goodness reviews about certain employers to help you skim out the spammers or employers that do not pay what is promised on the site.


To join and use the UpWork platform is completely free with no up-front payment. What is interesting is that UpWork does charge 10% of earnings on the platform, but that is charged to the client that is looking to hire. For example, if you would like to be paid $15 per hour for your work, then the employer will be charged $16.50 per hour. The $1.50 difference would then go to UpWork for continued maintenance and operation. 


If you would like to try UpWork, click this link. I am sorry to report that there is no affiliate or referral program since they have undergone their name change, but I will update this information if anything new becomes available.


Once again, thank you all for reading and I will catch you all on the flip side. :)



I love comments, emails, and messages so keep the comments and questions coming!
