Hello everyone,

 

Is something with Upwork or mt account. No job opprtunities for a while. I am very concern because I used to have very nice jobs. Suddenly, It changed. I am afraid that maybe my profile is not being seen.

Many of us face this issue (including me). In my case, it's just an issue of learning, understanding and "polishing" my assets. From my understanding of several forum postings an online events, the main reason is significantly higher competition on the platform. Including scammers.

 

The only reason to overcome this is to find and promote your niche of work and to consequently take the client's perspective in your profile and proposals. Main questions:

  • Which client's problems do you solve?
  • What is your specific approach for problem-soliving?
  • What are the benefits of your approach?

Remember: It's a continous journey. Hope this helps!

Strong profile๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ and talented freelancers, whatever your expertise๐Ÿ˜‚, may not be hired due to a lack of available and fake jobs and standard clients.

Hassan, 

Thank you for make a comment. I hope things get better.

You got two jobs in May, so I wouldn't describe the situation as having no job opportunities for a while. But as other freelancers noted, the competition is fierce and many new freelancers offer their services for surprisingly low rates.

Bashar, 

 

Your comment make sense when you wrote "many new freelancers are offering the services for low rates". Unfortunately. I cannot not do for low rates, Actually my fee is very low.

Maybe, I need to have patience.
