Well I had been once...Smiley Sad ,,,that client kept getting his test work done and didnt paid any...I still recall it and feel as a loser. Anyway thats why you people advise really helps people like us.

 

But can you advise on how my profile should be like...Just in shorter note.

 Geez, yeah, this has to be one of the worst overviews I've seen on here. I'm surprised OP's account hasn't been banned yet for asking for free work.

 

Not sure why anyone who claims to an expert would work for free. Not sure how anyone can really afford to for that matter.

I believe you havent seen that I have stated 3 hrs of work per client. Its a very meager one.

 

Anyway client does ask freelancer to prove their worth by way of test project. Isnt that free.

 

And for god sake, never say anything that makes other hurt. You could have told me politely about my profile. This is not the way to express yourself that it is the worst or it is a mess. And more so publicily.

 3 hours of unpaid work is certainly NOT "meager".

 

Offering free work is against Upwork's policy. Professional freelancers do not prove their worth by doing some work for free; they prove it by showcasing samples of their previous work and feedback provided by clients they've worked with.

 

Sure, you could offer to do trial work, but still demand that the client pay you for it.

 

I apologise that I've offended you by offering an honest critique of your profile. You're right, I should have been more polite about it, instead of the snarky/nasty way I said it.

As i said i am just the starter here and have not much idea about it. I will definitely take your advise and have my profile look more professional just as you have.

 

I am sorry if any of my word offended you.

You all have been helpful and scary too. I got what I needed and am leaving this conversation.. And with you all around cursing people, I would never ever look back to this forum for any help. I have NOT COMMITED ANY CRIME.

 

Hope upwork management takes over and look at the comments you have made on me.

 

Anyway I have changed the profile. And I will obey upwork policy. Thanks for all information.
