I am very new to Upwork and I have some questions to ask though..
I am associated with a group/agency at Upwork, will this affect my contract when a client awards me a job?
will this affect my job application even though I chose to apply as a freelancer on those jobs?
Hoping to hear from you guys!
Clients will be able to see that you are associated with an agency next to your proposal. They may still choose to hire you for the job though. Once you are hired, your agency admin or staffing manager may access your contract details an messages with the client. The payment will be send to the agency's account, so you will need to communicate with your agency admin and figure out ways for you to receive you money.
You can find more information about how agencies function in this section of the Help Center.
