Question?

Hi I have a few questions.

 

Can the person see your profile how many jobs you've succeeded or how many jobs you applied for, the reason why I ask I am pretty sure I've applied probably for an 100 jobs and I only have 1 success and one job that someone asked me to do. It really feels frustrated.

 

I feel if they know what your success rate is and they dont hire you.

 

Thanks

Your profile only shows the jobs you were hired on.

If by "person" you mean the client, they can only see what is on your Upwork profile. They can't see all the jobs you have applied for and have not been awarded.

 

Upwork also has a new feature to tell you if you have already applied to other jobs by the same client.

 

Your success rate is judged on the feedback you get from the clients who have hired you.

 

We have all started off at zero. You have to know what you can offer a client; you have to bid on appropriate jobs (the ones you know you can do) and  you have to know how to write an excellent proposal letter that will sell your skills to a client. 

 

Edited to add:  Ruhan compared with other IT specialists your profile seems a little weak. If you have Microsoft certificates, you should enumerate them with proof. "Various microsoft cerfificates" doesn't really cut it.

“Upwork also has a new feature to tell you if you have already applied to other jobs by the same client.”

 

Great!

 

When did this come into effect?

“‘Already applied’ also appears when you have rejected the job offer. So, this feature is misleading.”

 

So we can’t tell whether the client declined or we rejected/withdrew.

 

Well, something is better than nothing.

 It's not quite, quite clear, but will show in blue as "previous client" on your job feed, so you can check it.

Ruhan, I had a look at your (empty) profile and I immediately knew you have troubles to be hired. I would know even without having read your message.

 

If you were applying to one of my jobs, I would just click on the Archive button and would forget about you. If your proposals are lacking any relevant info the same way your profile is, you may apply for a long time yet...

We see people who rightfully get their profiles rejected, and then people show up with profiles  like this and ya gotta wonder how.
