I've been applying for a job for 2 months, but I haven't been able to get a single job.

Yusuf: Not everyone is ment to be a freelancer on Upwork.

Your profile says that you are a blogger.

But blogging is a HOBBY for most people, not a job.


I recommend that you continue blogging for fun. Blog about whatever you enjoy blogging about. Don't try to get paid for it.


For income, focus on work in your local non-online economy.

Click the Academy link on the top of the screen and follow this basic TIPS to get started:


PROFILE: Always complete your Upwork Profile before applying for Jobs. Create a Title and Skills to apply for Jobs to match what Clients are searching for. Use one or two of the Skill keywords in the Title to emphasize what you bring to the table for the Client. Create 3 or 4 short paragraphs in the Summary. If the Summary is too long, most Clients will not read the rest of your Profile; too short then there isn't enough information for a Client to hire. Use all 15 Skills IF they apply. The Skills are used to assist a Client in locating your Profile via search. Add your Portfolio and always use a colorful image. Consider adding a Project Catalog if it applies. By the way, it goes without saying make sure that your Profile Settings are on Public not Private so others can view the Profile.
