How do I know when I've been hired?

This is my first job on Upwork. I have had a message conversation with a client, and we've set up a time to meet when I will officially do the work (it's a technical troubleshooting situation, where she will screenshare with me). I assume that I have not been officially hired, even though we agreed on a time.....but I don't really know where to look to see that I have been hired. Also, would it be appropriate for me to remind her that I can't meet with her until she officially marks me as "hired"?

Hello Marci,


You may check it by going to your My Jobs page. If you can see your contract in the Active Jobs list, that means you already have a contract with your client. You may also check it on your notification page by clicking the bell button beside the accounts menu, you will see a notification saying that your contract with the said client has started. Thank you.
