I see, tell me if this works https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~016b8c66228f826b16

If it doesn't, I will have to reach support ๐Ÿ˜ž

Sergio, your profile reads well. Consider changing your availability to less than or more than 30 hours. This will give your potential clients an idea of available hours. Next, consider making a short (1 min) introductory video. Lastly, change specialize profile or all work. At present, the overview section in both profiles reads exactly the same and yet the hourly rates are different. 

 

Hope this helps. Good luck!!

Hi Toor, a profile shouldn't just be a description of what you do, and yours mostly just reiterates what is in your title. You need to describe what you do that's unique, how you work with the client, and what you will provide that will help the client achieve what they want. You need to put yourself in the client's shoes and think about what they need to hear to hire you. You also need to work on the writing in your profile, as it's poorly written in English, so perhaps you can have someone who has more English proficiency help you clean it up. 

 

If you are trying to be a sports content writer, then you need to have a portfolio that shows some of your work. If you have previous clients or employers you can get testimonials to help lend credibility to your profile as well. 

can someone clarify my mistakes that i have done in making my upwork profile. please rate it and tell me what is resisting me in getting projects.

Hi, I am struggling to land my first gig. I believe I am excellent at writing. I have a few happy clients outside of this platform. I just cannot seem to score a job here. Time is running out for me because I have been around for two years without even one job. Please help.

A freelancer offering website development does not have to have a perfectly worded profile, that's excusable if English is not his first language. For a writer, that does not apply. You need to rework your profile, it's repetetive, and you start every paragraph with "I" which is not a great look. There is an overall sloppiness about it. 

How many proposals have you written?

Thank you!

Pooja, you are off to a great start. Consider doing an introductory video (1 minute long).  Although I don't see any major deficiencies, there are several minor areas. The word count in the overview section is precious. I wouldn't want to waste it on details that can be found elsewhere e.g. "I'm Pooja from India". Unless you are targeting clients from a specific geographical region, location is unnecessary in the overview section. "I'm new to Upwork" might not be a necessary detail for a potential client. I'd encourage you to review your profile to provide relevant content to the client. Lastly, try to get some certifications in your area of work. It is not required to get started but it definitely helps in getting long term clients and larger contracts. 

Hope this helps; Good luck.   

Thanks a lot! ๐Ÿ™‚

Would love for somebody to take a peek at my profile and see what they think! Was wondering if I put too much of my work experience on my profile and whether it's better to leave it off?

Hi Emma W, I have reviewed your profile. you have a nice and clear description.

I would suggest you complete 100% of your profile. I can't see any testimony, any certificates in your profile. Try to add those.

Other than these, You have built a good profile so far.

Btw, I've also started my journey in Upwork recently, It would be great if you review mine and share if anything you notice wrong or can be upgraded.

Thanks,

Mehedi

Hello Sir

I am Sadia Rafiq From Pakistan . I am a data entry and graphic designing expert. Dear sir i have posted 22 purposals but didn't get a job i m trying my best i am working day and night but failed plz see my id and give me a feedback because it is very important for my career.

**Edited for community guidelines**

I would love for someone to have a quick look at my profile. Any and all feedback is very welcome and appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Megan, your profile is well-written and includes testimonials. You are off to a great start. Consider adding more keywords to the skills list. Also, a quick search indicates that it is possible to hire a top rated transcriber for as low as $7! I'd encourage you to do some market research about pricing for transcribing jobs. But it will help you identify your niche. Lastly, It would help to have an introductory video or a portfolio. (You could simply have samples from your own social media accounts, if you are just starting out in that field & do not have a formal portfolio.)

 

Good luck, I am rooting for your success!!

Hello all,

Hope you all are doing well,

I am a new Upwork user and I have passed the 'Upwork readiness test' and got a 'rising talent' badge on my profile.

then also I don't get replies to my proposals.

It would be great if you guys review my profile and give me some good feedback to help me for getting projects on Upwork.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Dear community, refreshing healthy discussions. Just began my freelancing career as content specialist. Though have extensive experience outside Upwork. When to expect work? Have applied for so many assignments. 46 of the 55 applied for positions still like beacon-light. The new entrants need to be somewhat prioritized, though they lack those lucky stars.

Greetings to All !  I would request to review my profile and suggest any improvement. I also would like to know whuch technologies are hot and in demand. I am thinking of brishing up on Django + React Full stack dev..  Please recommend.  Thank you..  

Sukhendu, with 623 hours already- that's a great start. I noticed that you have extensive experience in this field but the profile does not portray it very well. Consider developing a specialized profile and 'all work'. In particular, pay attention to the skills list. Consider changing your availability to hours. This will give potential clients a good sense of your time. You mention you have a blog. I am not sure if connecting blogs is allowed for Upwork profile. But you can take some content from the blog and add it on LinkedIn as articles. You can then connect Upwork profile to LinkedIn. At present, a potential client has no idea of the quality of your work. Lastly, I fear that you may have priced your services too low!! A quick search indicates that data scientists have hourly rates in three figures. Although one might want to keep rates low at the beginning, extremely low rates raise questions about the quality of work. I encourage you to do a market search. 

Hope this helps. Good luck, I'm sure you will get good projects on this platform.         

Hello Aditi,  Thanks a lot for your detailed reply. Yes, I will add more experence with right skills onmy profile. Will link LinkedIn and Uowork profile. Yes, will increase my hourly rate gradually as I gain more experience as data scientist. But median hourly wages are about USD34 for data scientist in USA.  Could you please tell me what skills are in demand now.  I appreciate your time and help.  With best wishes and Regards - Sukhendu
