I’ve reset your profile visibility back to public. Just so that you are aware, freelancers with no earnings in 30 days will have their profile set to private (locked) automatically. To avoid this, you can resume earnings on a new contract or upgrade your membership to the Plus plan. You can check out more info about this here. Thank you.
Please reset my profile back to public. As a suggestion, this should be done based on inactivity, not earnings. I'am actively submitting proposals and having locked profile doesn't help.
I have set your profile back to public as requested. If your profile is set to private again after 30-days, or sometime in the future, check out the options listed in the email notification or in the pop up on Find Work page to set it back to public.

Well, so much for trying to find work on this website. My profile has now been set to "private," and I was told to either contact customer service or get a paid account to unlock it again.
To be honest, I don't know how interested I am anyway. I would like to get quality freelancing clients, but I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong. The few people who did hire me had sort of unrealistic expectations, like expecting their projects within only a few hours.
I wish I knew how to get real clients. I'm assuming my profile isn't appealing enough, and, no, I'm not an award-winning blogger, just an unemployed English teacher, but still...
Really, though, the idea that I might be "underqualified," at least on paper, to meet specific client needs has crossed my mind. I'm open to getting additional training maybe if I can find it for free / low cost. I just don't want to spend lots of money trying to get a job. I think I learned that lesson after college. Any ideas?
