Challenges of working with clients in different time-zones
On Upwork, freelancers can connect, work and receive payment from clients all over the world. However, along with the undeniable benefits and broad opportunities, there are challenges. One of the biggest challenges noted by freelancers who work with clients on the other side of the world is the time difference. For example, It can be rather difficult for a Ukrainian freelancer to stay up late for a meeting with a client in California. Some freelancers even filter their job search by location so they are able to work with clients in their time-zone.
Do you find it difficult to work with clients who are hours ahead or behind you? Do you alter your own schedule to accommodate the client’s needs, or avoid jobs that would require you to do so? Do you manage to take advantage of the time difference? Please, share your tips and best practices.
