Hi Smiley Happy

 

I'm an experienced Social Media Freelancer but only just joined upwork.

 

I'm wondering how anyone get's going on here?

 

Every job I look at requires 

Job Success Score: At least 90%

Include Rising Talent: Yes

 

Clearly I haven't got this yet, and with every post requiring this, i'm not hopeful how i'll ever build this up.

 

How do people get going?

 

Thanks in advance.

Those are default settings the client may or may not edit. You can still submit bids to those jobs.

Thank you Smiley Happy

 

I am applying for jobs, but just not too hopeful if they are genuinely looking for this criteria.

 

I'll just keep going and see where I get to Smiley Happy

 The 90% JSS is a default option and clients can remove it. But most of the times I see this option. If you think you meet all the other criteria and have skills for the job then go ahead and submit your proposals.
