I am professional graphic designer with over 18 years of experiemce. Now I am focussing on upwork for future. I am trying very hard for projects. I bid 30-40 prosposals but no response. Although I have one project which is in progress. I want to know where I am going wrong. Please help.
The first thing to do is remove that link to your portfolio. It could get your account suspended. They are not allowed here when there is a way to contact your privately through that site.
You might want to repay the money made for that one contract with the bad feedback. It has really lowered your job success score. Although you will lose some point by refunding the $5, what you gain by removing it will be worth it.

You should be able to refund it, as it isn't a year yet since the contract closed, unless that has changed recently.
You would have to go to the contract and do it from there.
Please note that a refund will make the feedback go away, and might minimally boost your star rating (but as feedback is Dollar weighed I doubt it will make any noticable difference as it was only $ 5.00) but will not improve your Job Success rate, which is dangerously low...
Even i am also trying very hard to get the work. I bid ~60-70 projects sofar, but not hired yet.
I am a graphic designer with 9 years of experience. I don't know where i am going wrong.
