Hello team members, is anybody here who has ample knowledge and experience with Upwork and profile building? Kindly review my profile and help me get some freelance gigs, please. Thanks!

I have tried to add all the details and yes, there are no samples. I have no prior Upwork samples or work experience since am new to this platform.

You need to show results in order for clients to take you seriously as a Business Consultant/Coach. 🙂

Hey Sanjukta, please develop the Summary more and place into a shorter paragraph format and add your Portfolio. Thanks!

Yes sir, but how ? I am in this industry for the past 4 years but I am new to Upwork. I have nobody in my profession who have an Upwork account so that they can give me testimonials. I have 4-5 testimonials on LinkedIn though. I have strong portfolio of work and CV as well which I can't upload here on Upwork.

Add samples and lower your hourly rate. Nobody is willing to pay a newbie $37.50/hr.

Hello ma'am, I want to know how to include work samples here since I have nothing related to Upwork. Otherwise, I have 4 years of writing and editing experience (freelance and internships). I also have a strong CV, LinkedIn profile and work samples. Can I share my work links here ?

NO. You share them on your profile or when you apply to a job. If you don't know how to do that, you should enroll to Upwork's Academy.

Yes sir, I have shared my work samples while applying for freelance gigs. Thank you for your response.
