Keep trying, no one trusts Nigerians but we still push. All I can say is keep pushing bro... You'll land something soon. That was how I started and I'm still struggling...

Hi Akinbode,

I'm new on the platform and sought out this forum after getting rejected twice. I was going to narrate my experience here but I've taken cues from your response to last poster, could you please look through my profile and portfolio and tell me where to make adjustments.

I really appreciate your help.

Ok, I'm new to upwork, I joined about 3weeks ago, I have submitted over 40 proposals got two replies and only one job from a Nigerian. I have this fear that people avoid me because of my nationality. I would be glad if someone can look over my profile, tell me I should do to get jobs. Thank you, would be glad if someone can mentor me here too.

To be successful on Upwork, you need to be professional.

 

i. Get a portfolio of the niche you are interested in.

ii. Write a 'human portfolio for each job

ii. See through your client's eyes

iv. Be determined to get the job and be excellent and extraordinary

v. Negotiate a good fee, this will also encourage you to put in your best.

 

If you have a great profile that looks professional or capable, your nationality does not matter.
