Hi Muteeba,

 

Your updates look good.

 

With reagards to creating a more effective portfolio and showcasing your skills and achievements, I suggest converting your Presentation Slides to a PDF. Believe it or not, there are some clients who may not have PowerPoint installed and cannot open that file to review. The PDF is more universal and more clients can open PDFs.

 

Also, I looked at your ABC Transporters in Health and Disease PDF file and it has great information. Are you able to add a cover page to the PDF file? This way, the cover page (hopefully, with a graphic) will show in your portfolio and I think a graphic gets more attention than an empty slot. For example:

For the PDF cover page to show in your portfolio, you might have to change the portfolio template to "Classic."

 

The other areas of your profile look good!

Hi Clark,

Thanks for the feedback. I'll convert my Presentation Slides to PDF for better accessibility, and I'll add a cover page to the ABC Transporters PDF. Appreciate the suggestions!

Best regards,

Muteeba Ahar

Jeff,

 

I looked through your profile and I think it looks good. My only suggestions are regarding your title and overview/summary:

 

Title: Upwork typically suggests removing experience information from titles and using it in your summary. I agree, so I would remove "with 20+ years of experience" and only have HR & Operations Consultant.

 

Overview/Summary: For the summary, I would add the title and experience:

 

I am a collaborative HR & Operations Consultant with 20+ years of experience helping business improve operations and maintain quality standards. I am passionate about being a short- or long-term solution for your business needs.

 

Portfolio: I only slightly suggest adding a portfolio because I know it can be difficult for HR/operations professionals to show visual samples of your work. The portfolio is a chance to make a positive first impression and clients like images, so if you can think of something to display, you should.

 

The other areas of your profile look good. I do not see any problems or issues that would prevent a client from hiring you.

Can you make a review for my profile: https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~017d4b4ec6f5b478c8

Hello Upwork Community, 

Please check on my profile and help me improve it to get my first real project, because I thought I got previous jobs but actually they were just scams, unfortunately. 

So HELP

Hello Rakia,

 

It looks like you made a few updates from the review on August 1, but you still need to update your skills list. The other sections of your profile look good. Other than the few changes I recommended, I do not see any problems that would prevent a client from hiring you.

 

Winning your first project will most likely come from a combination of a good cover letter and then a good profile. Your profile is fine, but make sure your cover letters are based on the client's specific job requirements. Focus on the client's needs and requirements; highlight your qualifications; and tell the client how you will meet their needs.

 

Good luck!

Please, can you have a look at my profile and give me an honest review?!

Marianne,

 

You need to add more information to your profile. Your overview/summary does not provide enough information for clients to understand how you can help them. Use your summary to tell clients which data entry services you provide and how those services will meet their needs.

 

Also, update your skills list with more categories related to data entry. At a minimum, you should include Data Entry and Data Collection. It is important to keep your skills list updated with relevant skills categories so that Upwork can match you with relevant jobs, and so your profile will appear when clients search for your skills.

 

Finally, 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.

Abdullah,

 

I think your profile looks good, but your overview/summary should also tell prospective clients what you can build. You talk about experience and specializations, but you never say anything like: "As a Python developer and AI engineer, I can build AI models to help you make better business decisions, increase efficiency, and reduce your costs."

 

Also, 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.

Hello Arun,

 

Your overview/summary and portfolio look good, but you need to change your photo and add more skill categories to your skills list.

 

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.

 

We are allowed up to 15 skills, and there are many more an artist/illustrator could add. It is important to keep your skills list updated with relevant skills categories so that Upwork can match you with relevant jobs, and so your profile will appear when clients search for your skills.

 

Once you make these updates, I think your profile will look better to clients and your job matches should be better.

Thank you.

Jay,

 

I think your profile looks good. The only two suggestions I have is to add a very important skill category to your skills list: Full-Stack Development and add a short job description to your position at Keshav. We are allowed up to 15 skills and it looks like your main profile has 14. The reason to add Full-Stack Development is because it syncs with your title and summary. This will Upwork match you with relevant jobs and help your profile appear when clients search for your skills.

 

Everything else looks fine. I do not see any problems that would prevent a client from hiring you.

Muhammad Ali,

 

I think your profile looks pretty good. Your overview/summary is quite long and most clients will never read it all, but the information is valid.

 

I recommend removing the first line of your summary: "Full Stack Web Developer | React JS, Shopify, and WordPress Expert" Why? Because only the first two sentences of your summary are shown to clients in searches, which means you have small window of opportunity to grab their attention. You want to use that small window to show clients that you can mee their needs. There is no need to repeat your title in the first line.

 

I would also add short job descriptions to each job in your employment history.

 

Everything else looks great.

Stanley Uchenna,

 

I looked through your profile and I think everything is good. Your overview/summary is well-written and gives prospective clients enough information to understand how you can help them.

 

My only suggestion for your profile is to add a portfolio to show samples of your work. Clients like visuals and the portfolio is a chance to make a positive first impression on potential clients. It can be difficult for an auditor/bookkeeper to showcase samples, but if you can think of any audit documents, reports,  software applications, etc. to show, it might help clients better understand the tools and resources you use.

 

The other areas of your profile look good. I do not see any problems that would prevent a client from hiring you.

 

Good luck!
