 I don't have any tips on how to get approved, it is really hard these days, as upwork gets about 10K new applicants each day and accepts only a small number. Only people with skills that are underrepresented will make it. 

That may very well be in your case.

But generally, you have to change your wording. You state that you are here because you want to learn, that your work is based on truth and honesty, and don't care about the money you make. 

Look at this from a clients perspective:

Your client does not want to teach you anything, he wants you to have the necessary skills already, he wants your work to based on your skills (truth and honesty should be a given), he wants you to be confident about your skills, and if you don't care how much he pays you for it, you will not be taken seriously.  You just invite scammers that way.

Hi, I'm new to Upwork. I have created this account for two weeks and Upwork still rejects my profile. I tried every tip and trick, added portfolio, experience, tests... but Upwork keeps sending me an email over and over that said my profile has been rejected.
What should I do now?

 Find a different platform. This one is full.

Every day 10.000 freelancers try to join Upwork. 98% are rejected.

Of those who get in, the majority never earn a single Dollar.

Hi, an existent UpWork customer is willing to hire me ASAP part-time in this platform and we agreed I could also work for other customers so I've created my profile really quick and I'm ready to start working for him. But I can't get my profile approved, I just completed all my profile with more information. Can you please advice how to continue? My customer is aware of the Bring your Freelancer feature but he agreed to have me as normal user in UpWork

Thank you in advanced,

regards.

Hi Virginia,
To the best of my knowledge, as soon as your customer uses the BYOF feature, your profile will be accepted immediately.
