I’m not a huge fan of Upwork but I have listed it because some people are very successful here and have formed lasting relationships and received continuous work after their gig was done.
I have received work here as well so it doesn’t hurt to check it out. And if you get linked up with a really great client it could be well worth it.

If there’s a dispute do tend to side with the client (I submitted the work and won my case so just be sure to always save your stuff!) and if you don’t submit proposals often enough they ‘ghost’ your profile which completely defeats the purpose and one of the reasons they fall out of my favor.
