Here at Internet Income Jamaica we teach people how to make money online using the skills they possess on various platforms. These are great ways to conveniently enter the working world and express your talents creatively online. There is an important update to one of the platforms utilized called Odesk.
Odesk is now named Upwork. A shift which signifies the merging of two online workplaces, Odesk and Elance. These two companies have similar missions to bring sellers and buyers of online work together in one place. However, they’ve chosen to use Odesk as the primary platform of the combined company.
Rebranding Odesk allows a chance for the establishment of a name to better convey the vision of the company for years to come. Elance-Odesk was considered to be too many words and therefore, Upwork was formed. Upwork was chosen because it constitutes the endless possibilities of online work and the associated community. According to Elance-Odesk, it is a name which inspires them and which they hope will inspire users also.
Your past Odesk and Elance account log-ins will work with the new Upwork platform. However, if your account had been permanently suspended on either of the original platforms then you will not be considered for reinstatement on Upwork.
Upwork offers a cleaner and friendlier user experience. It is also available for use on mobile (and Android devices). The new platform also supports hiring of workers faster, better collaboration, support for larger teams and resources to assist both clients and freelancers achieve success.
Freelancers can give a sense of when they are available to work by indicating if they can work 1. now, 2. later or, 3. not in the immediate future. Additionally there will be better organization of most suitable candidates for freelancers to different clients. In other words, the arrangement of how clients view freelancers and the suggestion of freelancers for various projects will be improved.
Collaboration among teams of workers will be facilitated via the desktop website, the mobile apps and with third party tools. Team rooms will facilitate chat like platforms, file sharing, and integrations for video. These settings will be made available to select groups of users in the initial phase of Upwork.
Larger teams will be allowed to communicate with each other better in team rooms. The platform will let colleagues exchange information and share ideas in one convenient place.
Upwork offers freelancers additional tools and resources to enhance their professional growth. Freelancers will now have a job success score, “My Stats” and a Top Rated status for more professional workers. The Hiring Hub is a spot for provision of ideas and inspiration for workers and clients to try and get their work done quicker. All these features and enhancements mean that the new platform of Upwork will be easier to use, and become an effective tool for both freelancers and job recruiters.
