    We have several measures in place to ensure Upwork is a fair and reliable marketplace. We use multiple means to verify that freelancers and agencies are who they say they are. Information is also displayed that gives you a sense of each person’s skill level. In part, this includes:

    Authenticating email addresses

    Verifying identity through ID and video verification

    Displaying Job Success scores and client feedback on past projects for every freelancer and agency

    Providing results of online skills tests

    Ultimately, it’s your responsibility to screen prospective freelancers and agencies to make sure their skills and experience meet the needs of your project. Custom screening questions can be included in your job post, and Upwork Messages provides chat and video conference tools for interviewing finalists.

    It all starts by creating a great profile and submitting a compelling job proposal. Getting work online is a lot like traditional searching — you submit applications on projects, then impress potential clients before being offered the project.

    Creating an outstanding profile to showcase your business.

The best profiles are complete, well-written, error-free, and feature a professional, friendly-looking picture.

    Sending the client a compelling proposal. This will greatly increase your likelihood of getting an interview, so consider making sure yours is: professional, well-written, and error-free; tailor-made for the work you're seeking; and a true representation of your strengths and skills.

    Technology is making online work similar to local work, with added speed, cost, and quality advantages.

    To begin with, online work can happen wherever there’s a reliable Internet connection — an office, home, café, or rooftop. This also means you can choose who you work with, among a larger pool of people from around the globe.

    Payments are simplified when using Onslog, as time tracking and invoicing are integrated into the process. Funding projects is also streamlined as the Onslog platform builds fixed-price payment options into the process.

    There are some things that don't change when working on jobs online. Once the project begins, you'll want to communicate openly and clearly, and work to create a successful project for all.
