How do you stand out from the crowd in order to get jobs? I see many complaints here about people failing to get jobs because they are "one in the many" within a job posting. Then how do you people get jobs in the first place? I even see some poor saps posting on the "employer" side of upwork just to get hired in the first place.

Wow them with:

1. Job title

2. Skills chosen

3. Intro of cover letter

4. Profile: portfolio pieces and grammar (in my case)

 

Below are optional but quite helpful additions

 

5. Rate/Bid

6. Profile pic (subjective)

7. JSS*

 

*Yup, JSS plays a major role according to some of my clients.

Have an informative job title and clear, concise, error-free profile text that focuses on clients' needs.

“How do you stand out from the crowd in order to get jobs?”

 

Answering these two questions might help:

 

1) What makes you special, or what uniquely qualifies you?

2) Now imagine you are a client. What are you looking for in the freelancer?
