hi vladimir

i'm not sure if i'm in the right thread. i only wanted to ask if P&G, UL, and J&J accounts are handled by only one talent group. in general, is there a specific talent group for each enterprise client?
thanks.

Hello Garnor,


I have just received a contract offer from P&G Upwork Talent Group. Is this the same is the aforementioned GSD? Or are there more talent groups around than one?
Thank you!

Best regards,
Gabor


I hope your invite is worth it. Mine wasn't.

All I received was another fancy badge on my profile - the job itself didn't pay well and the execution process was rather messy - and the 5 other jobs posted in my Talent Cloud are all for entry level freelancers Smiley Sad

It just proves that UW's top enterprise clients aren't necessarily looking (=don't want to pay) for top talent.

Sorry to hear that, Ela. This talent group has got only designer/PowerPoint beautification jobs since then, some translator tasks even, but none of them in my language. You can't win 'em all.

Which makes a lot of sense, really. An enterprise client would presumably be large enough to have full-time employees in key roles,and use freelancers only for overflow or for large projects requiring multiple people.

 

I know that when I hired both in-house writers and freelancers for two different corporations, the high-level work went to my in-house writers whose strengths and weaknesses I knew well, who were intimately familiar with the company's products, services, values, etc. and who were sitting a few feet away from me to collaborate and brainstorm. At times I also had more than a dozen freelancers writing for me,  but they were always doing the work that required the least industry knowledge and the least independent judgment.

Bump...I know that if I have an 'invite' from a company that wants me to instal some sort of software either in my computer or phone is a NO-NO for me. Pay is low, they want more information from ME than they are providing about them, nope, nope. Use discretion.
