    There are no guarantees when it comes to free or paid job boards. However, that doesn't mean that there is no merit in them; upwork.com does in fact have some good opportunities. A potential candidate must conduct their own due diligence and research before making any decisions about signing up with the site, looking for work on it, or working with a client found via its services or this answer. More information can be found at the "What's a side hustle?" section of my LinkedIn profile- where I write about all manner of creative income generating ideas for those seeking to engage in honest economic activity outside the tried and true 9-5 jobs paradigm.

    This is a difficult question. We have not determined whether the website is legit or not, so it's unclear what to say about upwork.com. The site goes through many changes over the years, but much of the information available about UpWork has been aggregated by other sites that are unaffiliated with the company. This may indicate that there are vulnerabilities in their codebase affecting their back-end infrastructure and it can lead to discrepancies between expected account balances and marketing content showing inaccuracy with regard to pricing for specific jobs where project-based billing exists.

    Answer:

    I have a number of bad reviews on Upwork.com because I'm a pragmatic, no-nonsense programmer who doesn't suffer fools gladly and expects the same from their clients. It's not for everyone.

    Yes. Upwork is a work marketplace where companies and contractors post jobs for potential applicants to apply. Employees sign up on their own, then transact through Upwork using the payment system PayPalr to pay the fee they owe; Upwork receives 10% of that fee per transaction under Pay-Per-Hour Source Rules (unlike eBayr and other micro-merchant sites). Professionals create profiles which show past work and skills and set their own rates in order to compete with others professionals before applying for a job.
