Thanks for replying Julie.
I requested payment on one milestone, if the client approves and pays, can he then create another milestone, or have I 'completed' the job by requesting payment?
*Resurrecting this old post*
If I complete a milestone, then the client decides to award me extra work on a different project by adding a new milestone, does the Success Score algorithm treat this as repeat work? Or does the algorithm only look at how many separate countracts I've had?
Second question: If a client has ended a contract but wishes to rehire me, do they need to post a new job advert to the community, or can they invite me specifically to carry out one new job?
Thank you for your questions. Here are some answers:
- Long-term relationships and not the number or contracts with a client benefit your Job Success score. Long-term client is a client you have been working for at least 3 months over one or multiple contracts.
- A client can rehire you directly by going to their Freelancers tab > Past Hires and sending an offer directly to you. Alternatively they can post a private job post and invite you to apply.
I hope it helps.
Valeria, thank you for the clarification. A quick question - would Elance clients count as long-term? I have a client that I worked with on Elance and now I had to more to Upwork.
