I update it each time I have something significant to add or edit. This might happen a few times per month or less frequently.

everytime a new business paradigm is realized that is inline with my professional values.
paradigms such as: short and sweet, latest accomplishment, increase of EXP years or skills

some are finite and permanent increases or additions and others are just changes based on how i want to advertise myself. while just a small amount of the later are things im still figuring out, like the exact amount of each description that is ideal for landing jobs.

Every time I need new work!! I'll submit proposals and hear nothing, after I update my profile I usually get offers... funny how that works.  Smiley Wink

I joined Upwork last month and at first I was struggling with my overview being too long, too short, too convoluted etc.. but now I think it is concise and to the point enough. I especially paid more attention to the first couple of lines, as it seems to be the  most important part of your overview. But still, every few days, I check it out to see if I can make it better.

I have been on upwork for 6 months and like some one has mentioned already, I tweak a lot because i stopped receiving any invitation. I am still not sure..Could someone take a look at my profile and give me a few tips to make it better??

Thanks in advance..

Whenever there is a significant change which will affect how my profile can potentially attract clients such as after learning a new skill or earning a certificate.

This is very good topic, I found myself updating it once a month probably, and my stats and profiles views are getting higher, so I guess that's working.


Jenny mentioned that she got her profile reviewed by Upwork? How do you do that? I'd love to get feedback on my profile, I suspect it's too long!

I did, but then I lost it and couldn't find it, so they were going to send me a new one but it hasn't happened yet. I didn't ask for it, it just happened. There was great information in it too. I wish I hadn't lost it!
