Those who wear the niqab, how do they do it? I want to offer services, what is the relationship with the photo? I do not care about client pictures also
It's one of the ways upwork can verify you identity, which is important because there are a lots of scammers and frauds on a platform such as this. Plus it's nice for the client to see who he is dealing with, it makes a connection, which is important for getting jobs. Make sure to select a nice, smiling picture!
