Active Candidacies



I am new to upwork and have submitted a few proposals. One has been accepted during the interview phase. I other words the client told me she is happy with my proposal and wants me to do the work. She is also now to upwork how we move to the "Active Candidacies" phase?


Also once in that stage is their and option for me to load work as an excel and word document?


Thanks for the advice!

Hi Lene,


Welcome to Upwork! 


Your client needs to hire you on a contract by sending you an offer. Once they do that, you should be able to see the active contract on your 'My Jobs' page. 


If they hire you for a Fixed-Price contract, you should be able to submit work by following the steps shared here.


As you are new to Upwork, I suggest checking out the Freelancer Resources and explore Upwork's Events & Webinars page to help you get started.


Thank you.

~ Aleksandar
