Jobs Online

When I lost my job in 2012, I searched the web to find a conventional job. I applied to a fair number of positions and could not find anything. I had a couple of interviews but being over 50 years old, the conventional work market appeared to no longer be for me. I looked at work at home and tried surveys and similar “jobs”. Not satisfying at all.

I continued my search and found 3 online job companies. One I will not talk about here because I did not like the way they treated the workers. The other two merged together and became UpWork.com. This company helped me and my husband get through tough financial stress.

I had document review, English to French translation and other types of jobs. The best one I got was French Customer Service Agent for a large automobile company. I did that full time job for 3 years and now my husband is doing that jobs. One type of jobs I found on UpWork was Ghostwriter.

All transactions are paid in US dollars and the money can then be transferred to any bank account anywhere in the World. Employers must prove their financial ability to pay. UpWork does keep a service commission taken from the payment from the employer when the job is completed. This amount is clearly displayed on the employer and on the freelancer screen.
