Hi Ali, This is Okeoghene. I was once in your shoes. Apart from all that has been said so far, I think you should know upfront that you have to be patient with the process/journey of getting a job on upwork. Patience is a virtue they say and it will yield a lot for you on this platform. Patience and consistency will help you on your freelancing journey on this platform.


Happy working.
