I want to know how to explain clients about having full time job without losing them. Since clients start to stop contacting after knowing i have full time job.
Thank you for your response.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You don't need to tell them you have a full time job unless absolutely necessary. Take small jobs you can do over the weekend or after work and give them your deadline. That's what I did. If you deliver when you say you will, no reason for them to know what you're doing other parts of your days.
That's certainly the case too. The fact is, most clients don't ask too much. They usually just want a product within a certain time limit, at a certain price. Not many ask about the details of how it's going to be done or how much time you're available to do it!
Yep, clients don't bother me too much for updates unless I'm getting close to the deadline, which I've done when I'm really busy.
When it comes to talking about your personal life or all the stuff you deal with on Upwork (I'm amazed at the supposed conversations people say they have with clients about Upwork), less is better.
There's no need to let a client know that you have a full time job. You know what you're capable of, and about how much time it would time to finish a job. If you can satisfy the clients requirements and complete it with any deadline (if any) they apply for it.
Only if you see that it may present a problem concidering communication then you can mention that, Clients, as repied to above, only care about having their job done in the time limit that they need it. If you can meet that, great, If not, then don't take the job.
Hello. So I just recently joined upwork so I can work part time on the weekends or at night. I do work a full time job and when filling out my profile, added my present company as part of my work experience. Should I go back in my profile and edit this information out now that I see feedback is leaning more toward NOT sharing this with potential clients?
I doubt clients will look at your work experience outside Upwork. The clients who object to freelancers who are trying to work on nights and weekends are ones that need quick turnarounds and accessibility. For example, someone who wants their app coded doesn't want to wait weeks while a freelancer pieces it together in his or her spare time.
