I didn't look at your profile, but if it's just word salad my comments probably don't apply much.

The competition on Upwork is tough, as you've no doubt realized already. The majority of people who try Upwork don't get any jobs at all.

 

It's not enough to know that you can do a job. You have to be able to convince the client that you can do the job better than the other applicants. I would try to find jobs which are more specialized and where you have particularly relevant experience that you can mention. Good luck!

Your profile is a dump of words that make no sense.  How can an electrical engineer from Pakistan help a US-based client?

Thank you for your comments. Well i can not help out in the onsite installation and commissioning of any project that is outside Pakistan but i can privide technical Consultancy regarding Design of projects related to Electrical and Electronics Engineering, write technical reports, perform calculations and estimations, review reports or analysis performed etc. Based on my 14 years professional experience i can do these things. And as mentioned in my post, i have applied for only those jobs which are relavent to my expertise and skills. I have not applied for any job, in which i have 1% doubt of not delivering the requirements of the client/job. Any advise of your's about improving my profile is requested please.
