I'm just wondering how quick it is to land a job for data entry proejcts, do you have any idea? Does anyone get hired for this kind of job in upwork given that this is a basic skill? 


Sorry if my questions sound silly, I am new in upwork. I have applied loads of data entry projects yesterday but none respond.


Thanks for your anticipated inputs.

It is all depends upon the clients who posts the job.

Even Upwork also cannot able to assure that how soon you will get a job.

Keep trying and keep on trying.

All the very best.

Thank you K R!


At least, somehow, I can see a light in your answer Smiley Happy It may not be a guarantee but it shows a chance.


I also read some posts regarding high rating clients, might as well use the connects to them rather than others.

Hi Mahesh,

You will need to register as freelancer and fill out the application that is presented to you and submit your profile for a review.
Once our team has finished the review on your application they will let you know if you were accepted or not.

Hi Mokhtar,


I find it difficult as well, knowing that our profile does not show job success rate, upwork hours, and other requirements that some clients need. Anyway, as K R advised, let us just keep trying and keep on trying Smiley Happy 


With regards to how upwork works, I don't know exactly as well. I am eagier to get at least one client for me to work on so I could experience how this actually works. But, probably it would be good as well to post a forum topic asking the upwork members with regards to your queries. Do you want to give it a try?


Good luck to us! Let's just hope for the best!

I'm in the same boat as you and the rest of us. I just keep trying and applying but to no avail. The best I can do is just that along with doing free online courses that I do on youtube. There are many tutorials out there and have have at least 3 to thank for indepth knowledge of MS Excel.


I think I'll working with tutorials for the rest of the MS OFfice group ince i rarely use them.
