Hi everybody,

it is some times that I am not using Upwork and I am finding some difficulties trying to understand what is the best way to re-hire a freelancer with whom I worked in the past. I'm afraid I got lost in the Upwork workflow.


So I have to do the following things:

1) I want to create a new job.

2) I want to invite a specific freelance (no other freelancers have to see this job).

3) I have to create some milestones in this job defining a budjet for each of these milestones.


What have I to do?


Going into my profiles, then clicking on the "JOBS" menu voice, then I click on the "My Jobs" voice I can see something like this:




This section contains some old jobs. Clicking on a specific job I can see the milestones list related to this job. These jobs was completed some times ago but I think that I never closed it. Can I closte these jobs clicking on the "End contracts" button? Will these works still be visible even if they are closed?


What have I to do to re-hire a specific freelance on a brand new job without that the job post is visible to other freelancers?


Thank you
