This is great news, and finally a community to connect with fellow professionals. I've always wanted a community and people of the same field to connect to for years now, thanks for this!

Nice work.

Thanks, Upwork for creating this! I've been on this platform since 2017? 2016? Can't remember, but it's been a while! I was super skeptical at first... but Upwork has surprised me and has been one of the BEST decisions I had ever made as a freelance graphic designer. I've been working in the design industry full-time since 1996 and at this point, I knew I was ready to shift my focus niche, so I joined Upwork. We all know that we can't do 'everything,' so I'm excited to start making trustworthy connections and network with others who have skills that I lack and help refer one another!

 

Excited to get to know you all!

It's been  5 months since I joined upwork, I found it very helpful in terms of starting a freelancing career. It's an wonderful initiative from Upwork to keep freelancers under an umbrella to discuss various present trends and opportunities in the market.

Hello, I completed 4 jobs on Upwork, I have 4 five star reviews but I am not getting any offers, any suggestions on how to get any attention at all?

Hi Muhammad!  Your work is really great!  I think it would be great if you could add a portfolio video to your page.  Something that runs through all of your work, with labels so clients can quickly see the breadth of services you offer and see how beautiful your work is.

Thank you for the tip Mercy, I will upload a video ASAP.

also thank you for keeping me in mind for your client's design needs.

Hello everyone.  Can anyone give me advice on why my three consecutive clients just faded away when I asked them to provide a contract after we discuss the work's detail? I mean, is this a sign that there are a number of clients who just play these tricks to manipulate the freelancer for free? or a possibility my account was already stolen-  meaning the theft get the contract and continues to work without my knowledge? I feel someone is using my account because I am frequently receiving emails that someone away is trying to log in to my account.  I don't know if this is possible and happening already.

Only what I need in this forum is support! I do I get clients to work with? For almost a year I have started Upwork I haven't got a client to work with.
