How do I "complete my profile" if I have no certifications or portfolio to post? Do I have to lie and be dishonest by listing things that are NOT true about me?! Employers usually despise liars and dishonesty!! In fact, I just posted a thread titled "Incorrect skills and insufficient freedom to list my own skills" a short while ago dealing with this question. I would like a good response to it. Thanks.
Please, follow the steps to complete your freelancer profile once you log into Upwork.com and submit it for a review. After it's accepted, you can select your Membership plan and get connects.
