I am new to Upwork. Once I have submitted a proposal, how does the client contact me if they want to discuss it with me? Do they email me?
You might want to upload examples of your work in your portfolio section. Without any proof of your abilities, or something nice and shiny to look at, clients will not spend more that a second on your profile before they move on to somebody else's. Competition is huge in your field, and you need to work on grabbing attention.
Beware of unsolicited invitations.
If the client wants to intertiew you. You will recieve a message when he accepts your proposal. Then you can talk to client about the job requirements and proceed for the contract.
Best of luck for the future success.
