Feeling inspired? It is time for UpWork!
Are you looking to make money online? Have you got any marketable skill you know of or perhaps one that you have not been aware of? Whatever your thing, you may find a creative outlet at UpWork. UpWork is a skill-exchange marketplace. Freelancers are linked to prospective employers.
UpWork is the upshot of two services, E-lance and oDesk. oDesk aptly gobbled E-lance and established the behemoth known as UpWork today. The upshot was a multi-million-user platform that today finds you great job opportunities.
Getting started on the platform may be difficult at first, so we recommend that you fill out your platform thoroughly as soon as you register. Introduce yourself I the overview of your profile by highlighting your skills without sprawling the text too much.
Make sure you list a few competences compared to an overwhelming slew of skills – nobody wants their jack of all trades. Assuming you are a student in the liberal arts, you will find the world waiting with a multitude of writing jobs for you. Before you plunge in earnest, you may want to drop by the Community Discussions head the advice of some well-seasoned freelancers.
If you are into art, that is just as well – people at UpWork need things designed around the clock. Perhaps you have a proclivity for sums, then rest assured that enough data entry work will be available. Whatever your inclination, though, you will find high-paying jobs even as a student.
Another boon is the flexibility of the offer. You can work almost from anywhere and there are no real restrictions to your working hours, meaning you can fight those hours well enough with your pressing school schedule. Not only that, but you may find a paying client which you will retain for a long-term partnership.
The only drawback is that initially UpWork will cut 20% on all your earnings. This rate is client-specific. After scoring up $500 with a single client, the rate drops to 10%, and after $10,000, it is mere 5%.
But even that is not too much to be worried about. The great news is that UpWork is there to have your back and you can start today, and even in class!
