Can I, as a freelancer, create a job with a specific (new) client who has an Upwork account?

On occasion a new client (who has an Upwork account, but with whom I have not worked yet) who wants to hire me will ask me if I can create the job, as opposed them creating it.

 

There is a way to propose a new contract with a client if we've worked together, and there is a way to set up a "Direct Contract" with clients who do not have Upwork accounts, but I'm not seeing a way to set up a contract with a client who has an account but with whom I have not yet worked through Upwork. I have had several clients ask me if I could set up the contract.

Clients often need help with this sort of thing.

 

In a sense, you can "create" a job for a client, and doing so may benefit him tremendously.

 

I often provide clients the text they need to copy and paste into a contract description. I can't create the Upwork contract for them. But I can provide them with the text they need to describe the fixed-price task I am going to do, or even the text they need to describe an hourly contract.

Hi David,

 

Unfortunately, that feature is not available. Proposing another contract to an existing client is available.

 

Thank you!

Thanks, Preston. This is helpful.
