Hi Upwork Community !
I want to know about Personlized Profile Overview, one of my friend has got it from upwork, detailed persolized profile overview (see attached) for further recomendations and necessary changes in profile to win more jobs.
Is it self intiated by upwork for all freelancers ? oe for some special/top rated freelancers ?
How can I get this profile overview for me to make my profile more better ?
I received one yesterday. It was useless! (Started off by advising me to "Upload a professional-looking photo with a clear, nicely cropped headshot of you framed in the center." Then went on uselessly from there...) (e.g., They suggest I "add full details of [my] degree... official school name..." I guess that "B.A. from Carleton College" -- and including many honors earned -- isn't specific enough for Upwork's exacting standards.) (Did I say "useless" yet?)
@ Jennifer -- Do you need a well-centered headshot, also?
(BTW -- Not even sure they looked at my Profile, cuz the info is there. Not sure how else to write it. It says: "Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) | Carleton College [years] [lists four major honors]") (duhhhhh..)
They said I needed to change my photo, but I actually have changed it. I got my review in 2015 or early 2016, so I've changed it since then. They told me I need to cut down on my overview too IIRC.
I didn't take any of their suggestions. The whole "talk about your college classes" makes it sound like 16 year old high school students are the ones making decisions on profiles. Nobody over the age of 20 thinks this is important.
