I am posting this using my profile because my friend cant reach support or write on forum untill she has an approved profile. I talked to support yesterday and they replied me with standard phrases. I hope, that community has some answers. Message from my friend:

You are not allowed to do that.
You need to resolve your problems yourself. You can not log in to Upwork and post using other people's accounts.
But I don't understand why. I am posting from my account about upwork problem, I just attached her message to my post. I am Taisiya and writing from my own account, my friend is not using my account
The "Designer" section is completely saturated, in fact there are probably twice as many freelancers in it than are needed.
Your friend has been rejected 5 times, it is time she gets the hint... She will not be accepted and should find a different platform with less stringent requirements.
I think that in this case, Upwork shouldn't just give those 'hints' but they should directly state that they don't accept any designers anymore. I sincerely don't understand this, because I am working on upwork as a UI/UX designer and I receive a lot of invitations, sometimes 4 in one a day. I haven't been searching for clients myself for half a year now. I think that experienced designers(as she is) are still on demand, but because there are already tons of bad and unexperienced designers they are rejecting everyone without even carefully looking on their profiles. I believe this is an issue.
