As a freelancer, am I the one who creates the contract?

I am new to Upwork, and a potential client interviewed me and we will start tomorrow on an hourly contract. Am I the one who will create the contract or the client will? because I still don't receive the contract and is not in my profile yet.

The client will. Do not start working until you're hired.

Emvee, you did well checking it here first.

Before accepting the offer your client will soon send, it would be good to go through these guides:
https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211063418-Hourly-vs-Fixed-Price-Projects

Specifically, pay attention on what is said about the Time Tracker app.

If you follow the links, you'll see that there are a lot of articles that will help you avoid trouble and get things going fast.

Lots of people sing up and jump in not learning how the platform works and quickly end up in a situation that kills the good start (and motivation).

I'm sure this won't happen to you now.

Happy reading and good luck! 👍
