I am planning on working on Upwork full time. I am currently a mother to a 17 month old and I am trying to balance with a full time job. However, I would like to know how I can improve my stats on Upwork and get higher paying jobs. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I prefer to work on projects that are not phone related.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I started a few weeks (months?) ago and for me, starting with smaller gigs helped a lot. I am thinking about jobs you usually find under the 'Other - Admin Support' (at least I have found them there mostly).
With these one- time project you will be able to get plenty of nice reviews in no time, boosting your rate
"Do you have any other categories I could try?"
I think that is only a question you can answer. If your skilset is what you have above, then I would try the administrative category. I would suggest taking some time to see what works best for you. Take a look at others profile and see what they are doing + the type of jobs they are getting.
