Taken long to be hired

I have been an upwork member for the last 1 year. Till now, I have not been hired for any project. Could it be my profile has a problem or what could be the issue. Please help!

Hi Esther,


I checked and noticed that your profile was set to private due to a lack of earnings. You can find more information about that function here and the several simple ways to have it reset to public. I went ahead and reset it for you. 
You may get some tips and suggestions from other Community members on how you could improve your profile as well. But I'd like to mention that updating your profile picture so that it's not cropped so closely and adding some portfolio items to showcase your skills could be something you could start off with.


I'd also like to share links a few Upwork Academy courses to help you:


Additionally, feel free to sign up for upcoming events and webinars to learn more about how you can boost your success on Upwork.
