Hi everyone!  

I'm new to Upwork over the past few weeks. I've submitted 14 proposals so far and still nothing. Does anyone have any advice please?  I've done all of the things Upwork has suggested, and even been awarded Rising Talent (thanks Upwork!) status which I'm super stoked about considering I haven't yet won a job!  I'm starting to lose hope of ever being chosen. I have found several projects just don't pay the going rate so I've often bid over their Fixed Price, which may have something to do with it?

Hi Lindsay,

 

Submitting proposals doesn't always guarantee that you will get hired or a chance to be interviewed, but you shouldn't give up on sending proposals to potential clients. You may check these great articles in our Hiring Headquarters to help you Enhance your Profile: 

Also, I would recommend that you check out these articles to help you create proposals that win jobs, and help you boost your career on Upwork: 

Thank you!
