The 'Member since' date that you see here only indicates the day you first came to the forums. It's not related to when you signed-up on Upwork or when you started working on the platform.
The 'member' here refers to being a forum member.
Yes, thanks. I just realized that. And so, on my 'UpWork' profile do employees see when I joined? I mean, I joined 'ODesk' way back when---where is the date? Where can I see it?
No. The clients don't see the date you joined Upwork. But they can take a look at your work history. So technically, they can see when you took your first job if they wanted to. But that's about it.
I myself would not have thought to look there.
You mentioned, 'if they know where to look.' Are you implying that is where they would look--at my certificate of earnings?
They would have access to my certificate of earnings??
