I am new to this and would like any pointers you might be able to give about getting work, setting up profile. Are you a basic member or have you upgraded, and do you really need to?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have a great day!
Hello and welcome! There are a bunch of great articles on the forum for newcomers. (https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/Want-to-get-that-first-job-Then-check-this-out/m-p/21457... and https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/Job-warning-signs/m-p/23801#U23801).
I would suggest researching common scams as scammers often target newbies, and also don't be discouraged if you don't immediately get a job. Good luck!
