I am a newbie on the platform. But I have a lot of experience working with texts on other sites. I faced the problem that no one employer responded to my application. You know, I fill out each form very carefully. My profile is 100% complete; I am a racing talent, I have successfully passed the readiness test and posted some works in my portfolio. Explain what's wrong? What should I do to get an answer? Help me, please.

Ok. Just make sure you use the same name as your legal documents, since you might have problems later otherwise.

The fact is upwork has thousands of freelancers that probably do what you do. As a freelancer, I apply to hundreds of posts before I might get one job. It's just the way it is.

 

Also, a client is not going to go through 20+ freelance messages and reply to each one. That isn't very realistic.

 

Just keep at it! Good luck.

I would take the bit about being new on the platform and the plea to treat you with understanding off your profile because a) it's an invitation to scammers, b) you can either do the job or you can't, and c) anyone you need to ask to treat you well is unlikely to ever treat you well.

Wise words indeed!

Yes indeed. You are right. I'll correct it. Thanks for the good advice!
