Hi Adriana,

Once you complete your freelancer profile and it's approved, you'll receive your monthly allotment of connects and will be able to apply for jobs.


Please, check out resources linked to this post by Vladimir to learn more about getting started on Upwork.

Thank you for your help!
One last question, I submitted a proposal... How do I know if it's accepted? How long does it take?
Thanks ☺️

They will usually chat with you and then send an offer. Never work until they send an offer.

Hi Shreedhar,


Once a freelancer's profile is accepted and they pick their Membership, they'll get their allotment of connects and be able to send proposals to jobs. The number of available connects is displayed on the right side of Find Work page.

My connects were supposed to come back today automatically. It didn’t happen. Can you check my account and tell me why it didn’t?

Hi Alicia,

Your connects should be credited some time today, please give it a few more hours and if they do not reflect in your account by the end of the day, let us know and we'll further assist.
