Best for a freelancer

it is a great opportunity for all developer who are seeking work independently and don't like 9-5 job and low income.Upwork is best because it give you all the freedom and you also grow as an individual by interacting directly to the customers and know about the market

Good way to earn some extra money

I started working as a freelancer with Upwork when the pandemic hit. It's almost been two years now, and there isn't much to complain about. Most clients you'll find on Upwork are verified and will be great to work with. The ratings option for every client and freelancer makes things transparent. It might be difficult to get the ball rolling in the beginning though, so don't give up!

There are many cool clients and talented developers.

UpWork is a job posting platform, I had worked as a Top-Rated JavaScript developer for 7 years and had many successful projects. There are many cool clients and developers, but some clients and developers are not so good.

Doesn't work for me, and from today, you need to pay to work...

So I'm a songwriter/audio artist that sent about 12 proposals without having any feedback whatsoever. Not even a "Thanks" or "ok". I put hard efforts to even make demos and exemples of what they wanted. Nothing, nada. From now on, we have to pay to get connetcs to get proposals, and then leave 20% fees in addition to upwork. What a joke. Bye bye
