    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Upwork (Toronto, ON) in February-2016.

    Interview

    50+ applications for each job paying usually way under any industry standard. Only usually receive a handful of new jobs a day in your field. Not enough jobs to make any sort of livable income.
