iorad's Raymond Chuma-Onwuoku wrote about the usefulness of Upwork:

Upwork is like a virtual marketplace where people from all over the world come together to buy and sell services. Think of it like a digital bazaar, but instead of selling spices and textiles, people are selling their skills and expertise.

Raymond has begun an Upwork Learning Series on LinkedIn, and his first post explains the whats and whys of using Upwork for anyone who wants to work on their own terms and be their own boss... like a freelancer, a consultant, or a small business owner.

Raymond explains that "It's simple, really. You create a profile, showcase your skills and experience, and start applying for jobs that interest you." iorad's goal is to help keep that simplicity going. Here's a simple tutorial about How to Create an Upwork Account:
