Hello

 

 I am new to Upwork. I have applied for 15 jobs. Still, now I have not got a single interview. Can anyone help me to get a job on Upwork?  I need to know what is the strategy to get a job.

You are trying to find work in a field that already has a large number of very qualified freelancers. They have experience, a relevant education, a great portfolio, and most of all, actually possess the skills they offer. 

Trying to compete with those freelancers is not a good strategy and is a losing battle that will cause you endless frustration.

Take a step back and re-think your freelancing concept. What are you really really really good at?

He had a portfolio. It was piece of word-salad after piece of word salad.

He can not hope to win jobs that require skills he does not have, such as the ability to write in English.
