I can confirm you'll need to upgrade your membership to the Plus plan in order to receive additional Connects with your membership plan and to have the ability to buy extra Connects.
Please note that you'll receive a new Connects once your membership billing cycle renews on April 21. You can find this information by going to Settings > Membership and Connects > scroll down and check the information in the Current Billing Cycle section.
Please replace your current profile photo and upload one which clearly shows your face and no more than your shoulders.
How 'bout mine, I haven't got any job yet though I've sent many proposal already. Is there any best advice you can give so they can start hiring me? I am excited for my first job here in upwork.
Thank you in advance.
If you receive 60 Connects per month, proposals can cost as little as 0 Connects, if you are invited to apply for the job, but most are 2 Connects, meaning you can send up to 30 proposals each month.
