Hello Sir, I'm so encouraged by what you said, I just updated my profile on upwork, what should I do to start getting jobs?
I do Wordpress web development, Wordpress e-commerce, Mobile apps as well.
Please guide me.
Thank you Sir
I can understand with you on the challenges you are facing but I still refuse to tie it down to my nationality. Perhaps because I am open-minded. In any race, tenacity is key.
I have joined upwork since November 2016 and I have not been given one project (job). As a matter of fact, about 80% of my applications were declined by the clients. As per all interview invites where I was contacted directly to accept interview invites, 100% of all the clients declined without notice or reason. They simply kept silent. But that does not stop me.
It would be a good idea to connect with the community discuss your challenges and still keep doing what you do. Perhaps there are areas where you require improvement. My profile has long been approved. Yet I still have challenges getting the first job in upwork. Let us continue while keeping an open mind.
I hope this helps.
Kindly fill the form accordingly with your
- Legal Name (usually the name on any of your government issued identification, maybe Birth certificate, Drivers License, PVC or International Passport).
- Residential Address (just as you write it)
- Federal Tax Classification should be Non-US. This is because you are not a US resident.
I hope this helps. Happy Freelancing.
I agree with Tonia. It's not easy being Nigerian here thanks to our scam artist brothers in Lagos and Owerri. It hard to convince clients of your skills and integrity. The best you can do is land the interview and ace it. Write a killer proposal. Try to be among the first five to submit. It helps.
