Hi there, 

 

I am new in Upwork. I just read online that most of the job in Upwork is via invite. Can I accept job invites and get paid even if my account was not approved yet?

 

Thank you so much!

That is nonsense. Most of the jobs are awarded via proposal.

Hi Miguel, 


You will need to have submitted your account for approval first before a client is able to send you an offer. I wanted to check if you have submitted your profile for approval already?

This may be true for long established very successful freelancers. It is not true for entry-level newbies in already overcrowded categories. Such freelancers will likely never get invited by genuine clients until they have done a few jobs.

No. Clients cannot send invites to profiles that haven't been approved. 98% of new profiles are rejected, by the way.
