Hi Md. Arshad,
Welcome to Upwork. First you will need to update your profile and make sure that it passes our review. Once your profile is approved, you may proceed to apply to jobs related to your skills.
Here are some helpful links as a new freelancer in Upwork:
I cannot understand WHY Upwork welcomes people on board with a large hostessy smile, and then later cynically (and cruelly), either makes them walk the plank or suspends their account for copying other peoples' profiles.
This is a public forum and our replies are read by other users who may have similar questions as the OP even if their situation and approach to starting out on Upwork is different. Hopefully, they'll read information Lanie shared and use it to be successful on the platform.
re: "To get a job on Upwork, is a cover letter is enough? Or do I also need an overview?"
By "overview," you are referring the to the editable text that forms the general description of you and your services found on your profile page.
Yes, you need to have an overview. You already have this.
You are a graphic artist. So you should keep in mind that if clients are a like me, what they are MOST interested in is your PORTFOLIO.
Personally, when I hire artists, I don't pay any attention to overview text or proposals/cover letters. I look at the freelancer's portfolio.
For me, when I see your portfolio, it looks like you just downloaded some stuff you found on the Internet. This looks nothing like the distinctive portfolios of the artists I hire on Upwork.
