Re: Bring your own freelancer for Freelancers

Hello,

 

I don't know if this topic has already been commented, but I can not find it anywhere. So I found a client from USA that wants to hire me through Upwork and that for me would mean quiting my current job. The client wants to bring me here through Bring your own freelancer invite, so what I would like to know is if, after I complete the project with this client, I am able to continue working through Upwork with other clients or will I have to go through verification process. I am asking this because I know it is hard to get into Upwork as marketing specialist.

 

Thank you!

1. Don't quit your current job. Never, ever do that. No. Big time no. You never know how this client is going to work out.

2. No you only can exclusively work for this client. If that were a loophole to avoid approval (not saying you are trying to do that) everybody and his brother and cousin would be on upwork.

I'm with Martina. If you quit your current job, there's a very good chance you will end up regretting it.
