Going to make this short and straight to the point.
I was browsing for work online came across this site decided to give it a try, I am from Barbados.
I've sent out quite a few proposals in response to the jobs I knew that I am capable of handling.
Some of them were declined and others no response.
I don't want to waste my time here when I could try to get some work elsewhere.
Do you think because I live in the Caribbean its best for me to stop trying or hang in there for a bit longer?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Nope,I don't believe it's your location. Iknow of someone living in your general neck of the woods that is a top rated freelancer.
I live in South Africa and manage to get some good gigs....even after people ask me "were you born there?" Yup, I was.
As you are new and you are in a category that gets targeted by scammers, you may get some dodgy invitations.
So read this so that you will recognize some of them at least.
Alicia, another vote of confidence for freelance professionals living in Barbados. There was an artist freelancer from there who did extremely well on the 'mama or papa' of Upwork - one of the two companies that were folded into U. He ran financial circles around his competitors.
hey thanks to you both,
I got a response from a job but i am a bit skeptical i realise at the bottom of the message it says the room has been archived and the job cancelled by client.
I was a bit skeptical about it anyway.
The name shown was :jh ggjhhj
