I am still new here to Upwork but i did find a job and it only lasted for five days. Can someone tell me how i can find a job on here for longer than five days and better pay other than six or eight dollars?

Yes - simply stop bidding on low-paying jobs. What you do as a freelancer is all on you. Seek out the better jobs that are on this site and ignore the many c__p jobs.

 

p.s. Your profile is set to private, so I don't know what you offer, or I might have other suggestions.

Your profile is still private, but that's a much better photo.

Sorry to be blunt Tamara, but you will have a hard time here. I understand that you want to be a writer. You are advertising yourself as one, but you do not demonstrate the required skills. Even your profile has issues that you obviously can't see.

 

You already know this. This is why your hourly rate is so low.

Rene: obviously Tammara is not really a writer. But I think she is a go-getter.

 

The current profile title she uses ("writer and editor") can be thought of as a temporary (and clearly inaccurate) placeholder. I am certain that it will be changed and replaced with something more appropriate as she reads more in the forum, looks at the job opportunities that are available on Upwork, and considers her own skills and interests and what she has to offer that clients would value.
