Since from the middle of March 2016, I have seen a lot of new freelancer from bangladesh to sing up in Upwork. As I am working nicely in upwork, New freelancer are asking me why their profiles are not getting approve. But today I have heared from someone that Upwork has dicided to not approve the profile for new Bangladeshi freelancer because Upwork don't want Bangladeshi.


Is this true ?

Hi Sheikh, 


The platform definitely do not discriminate against anyone so we apologise if that is how our Bangladeshi freelancers feel. A reason why their profiles may not have been accepted is because their profiles are incomplete. I recommend that these new freelancers - 

  • fix their overview by providing relevant experience to support their skills,
  • make sure that their profile title is a good short description of what they can offer to clients, 
  • upload their portolio on their profile

Here are some articles that you want to share with them to help them improve their profiles. 

You can also check this thread where there are great tips from different freelancers and clients. 

I hope this helps Sheikh!
