Hi everyone,


What are your thoughts on submitting proposals for jobs on the weekend? Is it considered unprofessional, or does this work differently on Upwork? 


Thank you.

I don't think it matters what day you submit a proposal - clients who need your services want to hear from you.

You can submit proposals at any time, 1 am, (EST) 4 am, on Sat or Sun and even on holidays such as Christmas, Easter etc. Clients around the world post jobs at all times, day and night, weekends, and also on holidays. and received proposals at all times.

Only clients' opinions matter, and they probably don't even notice proposal dates, let alone care.

Hi Eda. I don't think it's unprofessional. It's not like a phone call, which is hard to ignore. Clients can check their Upwork messages and emails at a time of their choosing. Some clients do work at the weekend, so you may be missing an opportunity if you wait.


Besides, Upwork is international. Would you also limit yourself to making proposals during the client's office hours, even if that happens to be your night time?

It's worth remembering that not everyone has the same weekend; it may be Friday and Saturday rather than Saturday and Sunday ( for example).
