Hello Community! I've been invited to work for an UpWork agency but I'm already working for one and I'd like to know if its possible to be hired by both. None of the contracts would be exclusive. Thanks a lot in advance!

 Yes it is possible.

It is not something I would do (because I would not want to work through an agency) but it is entirely possible.

Thanks Petra, what are the disadvantages of working through an agency?

 Other than you working for less because the agency takes a chunk of your earnings, loss of control over your business dealings with clients and the fact that many clients won't hire agency freelancers at all you mean?

Petra, your post is funny.  The irony of your answer contrasted against your Signature quote is amusing (even if it does have some truth in it).
