Saima, your profile doesn't add up. It would be best to revisit it and offer clients what you are capable of delivering - while you might be the best medic in the world, if you write, you must stick to your native language, or improve your English to fluent level. Also your photo is not convincing.  Anybody can dress up in scrubs and pose as a bona fide medic.  It is best to have a clear picture of yourself. You also need to add articles in your portfolio that are written by you.

If you are applying for positions that require using English, you have to improve your language skills.

Not trying to offend, but your post doesn't suggest that you're "Native or Bilingual" in English as it states on your profile.

Maybe you can work on that?

Sure . I will work on it too. But i have send soo many proposals till now but didnt get any reponce . Just 5 views on my profile but not order

I am trying to understand your thinking but I can't. Language ability is a core skill in terms of landing language-related jobs. I'm trying to understand why you think it's beside the point. That's a bit baffling.

I don't know anything about medicine, but if you want to work as a writer, you have to be impeccable when you write both profile and proposals. You will hardly find somebody willing to hire you after they notice the errors in your profile.

 

Try to list in an organised and easy-to-read fashion what you can do for clients - focus on them, rather than on yourself.

Just take a look at all the detailed content of the Academy section. That will help you a lot.

Thnkuuu sooo much fir helping me . Can you please help me to make my profile upto mark .

Saima, there is work people can help you with, and there is work you have to do on your own. Your upwork profile must be your own work. Why? Because it shows your personality and style, and if you adapt someone else's, all your subsequent work and communication will not ring true. 

So this is how you do it: You take all the Academy courses, apply what you learned, and then come back to the forum for critique.
