Hello Olaoluwa,

 

With so much competition, getting jobs on Upwork can be a challenge.

 

Overall, I think your profile looks good. However, I recommend removing the first sentence from your overview/summary: "Welcome to my Upwork profile!" Why? Because only the first two sentences of your summary are shown to clients when they search for freelancers. Since you have very little space (only two sentences) to get their attention, you don't want to waste any space with a greeting.

 

Add skill categories to each item in your portfolio. These skill categories act as keywords and help match you with relevant jobs.

 

Also, add a short job description to your job at Markova Creative Limited in your employment history. This is especially important when a job is relevant to the services you provide on Upwork.

Hi Brandy,

 

Welcome to Upwork.

 

First, there is not enough information in your profile to convince clients to hire you. Clients come to Upwork with specific needs, so your profile has to tell them about your services, your experience, and how you can help them meet their needs.

 

If we look at each section of your profile:

 

Title: Your title might be more appealing if you use: Expert Human Resources Manager | ADP Payroll

 

Overview/Summary: Probably the most important of your profile, your summary needs more substance. Clients expect to read about your skills and qualifications, but they really want to know how your skills/qualifications will benefit them. For example:

 

  • Talk about how you can help businesses develop and build their HR processes, programs, and policies

  • Talk about how you can oversee their payroll and benefits administration, and employee recognition programs.

  • Mention the HR-related software/tools you use (in addition to ADP expertise) and how you can help suport their current HRIS, timekeeping, and payroll systems

  • Finally, give them your value proposition: why should they choose you over other HR managers who are payroll processing experts.

 

Portfolio: Add a portfolio to show samples of your work. The portfolio is a chance to make a positive first impression on potential clients. If you don’t have relevant examples to add to your portfolio, you can create items that demonstrate your skills.

 

The other areas of your profile look good, but you need to work on the summary. Once you update your summary with more information, clients will have a better understanding of the HR/payroll support services you offer and how you can help meet their needs or solve their problems.

Nahida,

 

I think your profile looks fine, but you should change your profile photo. The picture in your photo should be a close-up image of your head and shoulders that clearly shows your face. Read through Upwork's best practices for How to Choose A Good Profile Picture.

Hi Andualem Worku,

 

You should remove the first line in your overview/summary: "(:1st_place_medal:) TOP RATED PLUS GRAPHIC DESIGNER (:1st_place_medal:)" since Upwork does not have you listed as a Top-Rated Plus member.

 

Also, I recommend capitalizing the first letter of skill areas in your title--this will help it stand out: Graphic Design | Branding | Logo | PowerPoint | Business Cards

 

Add skill categories to each item in your portfolio. The skill categories act as keywords and help match you with relevant jobs.

 

Add a short job description to your job at J.Film Zone in your employment history. This is especially important when a job is highly relevant to the services you provide on Upwork.

Hello Everyone,

Please have a look at my profile and give me the feedback and any suggestions need for improvement.

Hello Areej,

 

I think your profile looks good, but you should add more items to your portfolio. The portfolio is a chance to make a positive first impression on potential clients and clients will expect more samples from a virtual assistant who is also a content creator.

 

Your skills, project catalog, and employment history look good.

Hi,

Your profile have to be improved more to get it more attractive. For example Skills, Certifications  should be added to your profile.

Ammar,

 

I recommend removing the first sentence in your overview/summary: "Focused on delivering results, not excuses. :briefcase: #ResultsMatter" Why? Because only the first two sentences of your summary are shown to clients when they search for freelancers. This means you have very little space to grab their attention, and your first sentence doesn't provide much value to clients. You want clients to see words that show them you can help them meet their specific goals.

 

Add a portfolio to show samples of your work. The portfolio is a chance to make a positive first impression on potential clients. If you don’t have relevant examples to add to your portfolio, you can create items that demonstrate your skills.

 

Add short job descriptions to each job in your employment history. This is especially important when the jobs are highly relevant to the services you provide on Upwork.

 

All of these suggested changes will help your profile stand out a little better when clients search for freelancers with your skills.

Raju,

 

You need to change your profile photo. The picture in your photo should be a close-up image of your head and shoulders that clearly shows your face. Read through Upwork's best practices for How to Choose A Good Profile Picture.

 

Since you are new to Upwork, make sure your profile is 100% complete before applying to jobs. The best way to complete your profile is to go through the following Academy Courses and Learning Paths:

Hello Sena,

 

Very nice profile.

 

Your summary is informative and your Behance and Upwork portfolio look great.

 

The only suggestion I have is to add short job descriptions to each job in your employment history. This is especially important when the jobs are highly relevant to the services you provide on Upwork.

Everything else in your profile looks good. I do not see any problems or issues that would prevent a client from hiring you.

 

Good luck!

Talha,

 

As stated in my previous review in August, I suggest removing the first line in your summary.

 

Also, add short job descriptions to each job in your employment history. This is especially important when the jobs are highly relevant to the services you provide on Upwork.
