I receive unemployment. I have to submit jobs I have applied for to the unemployment department and they want contact information as well. Is there a phone number or email address for up work that I could list?
On Upwork, you are not applying for employment, you are bidding on freelancing gigs as an independent contractor on a self employed basis, which have absolutely nothing to do with employment.
You can't use bidding on freelancing gigs as proof of applying for employment.
Upwork cannot provide freelancers a certification or proof of employment as freelancers are not employed by Upwork. However, freelancers can access a Certificate of Earnings. Check out this help article for more information.
