Previous client wishes to RE-engage!

Question:

 

I have a previous client that has expressed a desire to rehire me for a new job.

 

Is there some way for the client and I to implement a new contract (with new milestones, directly just between us), WITHOUT the client having to post a new job for all the world to see and bid on????'

 

Thanks,

Michael

Yes. You client can make an RFP and set it to "invite only"  and invite you to it.

You don't create it your client does.  He creates a job just like he normally would except there is an option to make it public or "invite only"  Then he can invite you and post the job but it can only be seen by you.

By RFP she means job posting.

 

EVERY job posting can be created as a private or public post.

Ok gotcha.  So I just inform the client to create a "private" job post and send me the link to accept, correct?

Yes or if he logs on to his account he should see you on his past projects and there should be a "rehire" button that he can push.

When he pushes the "REHIRE" button, he has the option to add new milestones???

Send this link to your client.  It will walk him/her through it step by step.  https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211063628-Rehire-a-Former-Freelancer
