Hai !!

I just received a first active proposal, we just talked via phone, and after that I was asked for the draft design,
my question is whether it is my active work or what? What should I do ?

Hi Alfi, 


We always recommend for freelancers to make sure that an offer was sent to them by their client (it should show as a notification in your account, and your messages page), and the freelancer has accepted the offer, the job is showing as an active job on the freelancer's My Jobs page, and the client's payment method is verified. Before you start working on this project, please make sure that your experience is the same as what I have mentioned above. 


Since you are new here, I highly recommend that you read up on the freelancer resources we have compiled, for great tips and insights on how you can work successfully on the platform. Please don’t forget to read the Safety First! section of the resources, and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs for more information about working safely through Upwork.
