Help finding a job

Please can someone just help, I'm a teenager and I kind of need to make some money, I've sent out a few proposals and haven't heard anything back. What can I do to help build my profile and start working?

Are you 18 yet?  If not, you are not permitted to work on Upwork.  Also, your profile picture must be a real picture of you, from the shoulders up. 

 

Clients prefer freelancers who have experience in whatever their niche is before they come to Upwork.  I can't see your profile because of the glitch but generally, you would do well to get experience in your field before you try to freelance.

Mary, in order to view the profile, you must delete the underscore that appears after "freelancer/" and before the number "~01e68172837bd73f7f"
