  2. The Water Cooler
  3. The Elance Blog
  4. All of these.
Correct Answer: 4

Question 1: As a provider, what is the benefit of maintaing a paid plan?

A: e. All of the above.
Explanation: The answer is pretty obvious when they list a bunch of benefits. How can you go wrong? In any case, the big benefit is the ability to buy connects. In case you don’t know, you need to bid on at least 20 projects before you win your first one. Paid membership is the only option in my book.

Question 2: Elance offers both skills tests and code tests to help providers standout. Through these assessments, providers are able to display their passing scores for the potential employers to review. What are some guidelines to keep in mind related to skills and code tests?

A: e. All except d.
Explanation: You have to wait at least two weeks before re-taking a skills test. Do these at your leisure, and never make them a higher priority than doing work for your current clients. It’s important to pay attention to your test scores, but your work samples are a better indicator.

Question 3: Why is it important for providers to build an effective profile?
 
A: d. All of the above.
Explanation: If you didn’t get this one right, you are severely lacking in basic logic and critical thinking skills. They just listed a bunch of benefits. Of course it has to be all of the above.

Question 4: What tools does Elance provide to enable you to track the time spent weekly on a job and updating an employer on the status of a job?

A: e. Everything except d.
Explanation: Whenever they give you an option like “anything except d,” go with it. Why would they give you an option like that if d weren’t somehow out of place? Plus, customer service doesn’t have anything to do with helping you keep track of your hours.

Question 5: Which of the following is NOT true about workroom messages?

A: d. Workroom messages are viewable by anyone.
Explanation: Only you, your clients, and a few members of Elance’s staff can look at your workroom messages. The workroom is considered a private conversation between you and your client.

Question 6: In order for your provider account to become active on Elance, which step is NOT required?

A: c. Enter a credit card.
Explanation: You don’t have to enter a credit card unless you plan to hire somebody on Elance. Even then, you can enter your bank account information instead.

Question 7: Which of these provider actions would be considered a violation?

A: e. All of these are violations.
Explanation: You have to really watch out for a. Once you begin a contract with a client, you are required to do business over Elance for at least one year before you start taking your business off of the system. If you fail to comply with this rule, you will lose your provider account.

Question 8: If a conflict arises between an employer and a provider, which of the following steps is NOT part of the Elance dispute process?

A: d. Elance management makes the decision about whether the employer or provider is right.
Explanation: Elance never sticks its hands into any dispute between two parties. They hire a third party arbitration service in order to get an objective and unaffiliated perspective.

Question 9: How does Elance escrow protect providers?

A: b. It shows that the client has set aside the money to do the work.
Explanation: Escrow is arguably the reason why sites like Elance exist in the first place. Elance is like Craigslist, but it’s better because it’s much more secure. Without escrow, you have no guarantee that you’ll get paid.

Question 10: How can providers view a list of all payment activity?

A: c. In the get paid > account activity menu.
Explanation: You’ll be checking this all the time, so it’s definitely handy to know.

Question 11: Which of the following are Elance features that are designed to provide resources and information to employers and providers?

A: d. All of these.
