You should correct your stated English fluency (Your English is far from "Fluent") and in future you should not pressure clients to hire you before the interview process is completed.

 

As far as this client is concerned: Ignore him.

Still unethical!


Yeah, that word doesn't mean what you think it means. Rude, yes, but nothing to do with ethics.

 

The obvious solution is not to work with that client.

On the one hand, I agree that OP probably misunderstood the meaning of the word unethical. On the other hand, many, if not most, ethical systems contain some sort of golden rule, and thus using profanity the way the client did *would* be unethical, at least if I were the client. And granted the client might have been provoked a bit, but 2 wrongs don't make a right. Cat Wink

Adnan= As always, I'm late to this and haven't seen the message between the client and you because it's been deleted. But looking at what was paraphrased, IMO I think both of you were rude, unprofessional and just to quick on you responses. And perhaps both of you misunderstood each other.

 

Because freelancing is a business you need to be more diplomatic and professional in your responses.And if the client comes back with rude unprofessional remarks, you can just block them and walk away.

 

Just because a client interviews you, does not mean you will get the job. The interview phase is where you find out what's expected of you, that both of you understand each other, and any details or information that's needed is given to you to look over. If the client doesn't think you are a good fit for them they can interview and pick someone else. And even if the client give you a contract, if you feel the job is not a fit for your skills, or after talking to the client you feel that they are not a good fit for you to work with, you can decline that offered contract.
