Hi, I have a ffriend who has tried to join Upwork several times. She is bilingual and has many excellent skills. However, every time she tries to join, she gets a message that Upwork already has plenty of those skills.
We have tried calling her resume by various job titles (some of which were fairly obscure) but she simply seems to be unable to join. Is there a trick to doing it? I joined some time ago and dont now remember...
Many categories on Upwork are seriously ovesubscribed, with there being more freelancers than the platform can sustain already. This means that in those categories no more are needed, unless they have very significant advantages over those people who are already there.
"Many excellent skills" is generally a sign of a "Jack (or Jill) of all trades ..." rather than a highly qualified expert in one skill that's in demand. Being bilingual is great, but to be useful it has to be in a language that isn't already on offer by literally tens of thousands of Freelancers.
Recently, we hosted an event with Upwork's Engineering Lead, Mike Maietta. In this event, we introduced this new tool, and Mike demonstrated how to use it and answered questions.Learn More
