Hi Goodluck,

You are welcome to Upwork. The two ways of getting jobs is by application and invitation. You apply for jobs to land one, deliver an awesome service and keep good relationship so your client can hire you for same type of job. These are the two major ways I know of. Learn some proposal writing skills to have a better chance.


Kind regards and goodluck,

Akinbode A.

Hi, Welcome.
You should be able to find various examples on the internet, but I'd advise
you keep it at a maximum of 90words. I always keep it within this template:

(Short Greeting/Acknowledgement)
(Your Experience with the kind of job posting)
(Example of similar jobs you've done (portfolio))
(Conclude with something like: "ill be more than happy to answer any more
questions you have for me in and interview")
(Thank you)

I hope this helps.

Hi Tochukwu,

Hope you are fine. Try to apply in a small project first like $5 or $10. And always check the client is they are good client or just using upwork as a fun. Sometimes people just post a job and they never come back for check there profile. So always check on right side clients feedback and hiring rate. If hiring rate is up 50% it means client is legit. Always check hiring rate of the client.

Hello guys, I am finding it difficut to land my first job. Tried tips that worked for others, but still no bite.
Maybe I am targeting the wrong jobs or not sending enough proposals.
Can someone please review my profile?
