Hello,

Is it normal to not get hired although i used all of my connects. Its been one month since i joned upwork. I think my profile is good and i also got a portfolio to show. All of the design on my portfolio are real, all done by me. My descriptions are good enough. 

 

Appreciate any kind of suggestions.

 

Thank you,

I had a look at your profile and it does not show a portfolio. Are you sure you added any portfolio pieces?

Hi Sohit,

 

I just checked your profile and I can't view your portfolio/s as well. 
Please follow the instructions in this Guide on how to add your portfolio items. If you`re experiencing any problems with this, let me know. Thank you.

I think your rate is too low. It makes you look a bit desperate.

Clients tend to want the best they can afford; it's often a matter of wanting quantity over price.

As mentioned your rates are very low, and 'cheap' is synonymous with 'poor quality. I once found that, after an increase in my rates, I started to win more work. I think my rate changed moved me into a different sub-category of freelancer.

Why is this happening ? I been seeing lot of people saying same thing which i'm experiencing that they are using all the connects but not getting any single job. Even i have submitted many proposal where i was 100% fit for the job but i never got any response. When can we expect UPWORK to solve all freelancers problem.

Many thanks in advance
