Apply to the jobs that 100% matches your skills. Give client outline or idea how you will do that. What's your experience in the disclipine you are going to apply. Describe your work history and how you learned all this.

re: "Easy way to get a new Job"

 

Unfortunately, Md. Azizul, there is no "easy" way to get your first job on Upwork.

 

There are, however, tips you can follow if you're willing to put in a lot of hard work.

Considering you work in SEO etc. you need to dramatically IMPROVE your test scores which are dreadful. How can you be an expert and have such low test scores.

Sometimes, I get this strong sense that I'm about to see my next wave of website owners who will need my help to get them out of a penalty.

Try reading "A Freelancers Guide to Upwork"

https://d1u2uhea8ugy8e.cloudfront.net/odesk_contractor_manual_2013.pdf

 

Go through the help files on Upwork. There is lots of good information.

https://www.upwork.com/i/howitworks/freelancer/

 

Read the thread in the forum Want to get that first job

There sure have been a couple cranky freelancers replying to people lately. Tact would be something a few people could learn on this forum.

 

Being rude to other people is not helping them or you or the forum.

Suzanne,

 

Abruptly addressing one's potential colleagues in the imperative is rude.

Barging into the workplace unprepared to work is rude..

 

Being rude to all of us at one go does not help us or the forum, and by that time, I don't much care about the tender feelings of "them," and "they" couldn't be much clearer about being beyond help in this context.

 

Best,

Michael

Point taken Michael. You choice of words is exact as usual.

Suzanne also has a valid point though.

Setu and Suzanne,

 

Indeed, let us try to approach each situation with as much civility and assumption of good will as possible. And kindness is rarely amiss, if we can muster it.

 

Best,

Michael
