Work online & start earning (proof) part 1| Accept offer, complete job and submit work on upwork
In this article I am going to show you how to accept a job offer in Upwork, completing and submitting the work along with the screenshot proofs on how I pull the work off.
To show you all how the steps are executed, I accepted a small job proposal of fillable form to quickly give you an idea. As I accepted the job, the clients forwarded a set of instructions and other requirements.
To begin with, whenever you have a job offer in Upwork, you will see a start icon on the top left of your page.
So when you open the job offer, you will be shown the following page.
In this page you can either Accept the offer or decline it, or you can even message the client.
As I accept the offer, I get a window popped up, where I write a message thanking the client.
Check the Agree to terms message and click Accept Offer again.
As the offer is accepted, you will be redirected to the following page.
The file received from the client is in word document, which I am supposed to convert it to PDF and make the document fillable.
As I have told you in my earlier articles on how to convert to PDF, right click the file and click on Convert to PDF option
Save the file on the desktop for easy access
This the word to PDF converted file
To make it fillable, go to Tools on the right corner
Select Edit under the ‘Forms’ dropdown section
Since the document is converted from word, the PDF automatically becomes editable and fillable.
Edit the font details from text field properties as requested by the client.
There are a few instructions given by the client which we need to implement it before submission.
Instructions are to restrict the zip code section to 5 digits
Under Employment income, $ sign must appear before the digits typed
All these changes can be made through the Edit section under Forms
Select the Format tab and make the necessary changes by selecting zip code option
To make the dollar sign appear before the money value entered,
Make the necessary changes in the properties,
Also in this job, the client had also requested to add radio buttons wherever mentioned.
It’s time to send the work to the client.
Go to My Jobs option in your Upwork page
Click the Submit Work Option
You can write a message to the client before sending your work to them.
Upload the file by clicking the plus icon in the bottom left of the window
A window will be popped up, here select the output file and click upload.
After submitting the work, the file is gone for review submission.
This way I fulfilled client’s work while earning a good enough money for the same.
