Why do I need to sign up for an introductory conversation?
The introductory chat helps us to get to know you better. What do you like to do? What are good at doing? It’s not a formal interview but more an opportunity to help identify the existing skills you have that will match up to paid project work.
How do you assign projects?
We first match the projects to the specific skills of our students. We reach out to the qualified students with information about the project- type of work, due date, and payment. The first student who responds when we reach out will be assigned the project.
Will I get paid project work right away?
The number of projects and when they are assigned depends on the number of projects coming in. We have students who have completed multiple projects for different people, and/or because they did a good job and the manager came back to them with more work. If you don’t hear from us right away, don’t worry, we keep your profile active as more projects come in.
Why is feedback important?
We know the main reason you come to UPSKLS is to earn money, but you will also build professional skills that will be useful for any type of career your pursue down the road. Embrace the learning and feedback we provide in and outside of the project work you do.
Students Love Work Simplr
"I love UPSKLS and the feeling of accomplishment after completing a project! Student success is dependent upon EXPERIENCE. UPSKLS connects students with projects that do just that - get them experience!"

"UPSKLS saw my potential and gave me the opportunity to work even without a lot of experience. It gave me confidence that I can thrive doing project work and I'm not sure how I could have gotten to that point without UPSKLS."
Madi T - Student at Lone Star College - Tomball
" I truly believe that experience fostered a lot of growth in my skills and confidence in a professional setting. My UPSKLS experience was critical to obtaining my coming summer internship."
