Looking for constructive feedback

Greetings all


I am VERY new to Upwork, but I have already used all my connects on proposals.

Before I buy more, I would like some constructive criticism on my profile, for those of you who are willing to spare a moment 🙂

I don't want to waste time and money if my profile is not up to standard. I am aware that this is an extremely competetive industry, so I would like to make the best of it. 


Thank you for your time

It would be helpful if you set your profile to public...


Hi Robin


I have set it to public. Perhaps it takes a few hours for the changes to take effect? 

If you have the time, could you perhaps see if it is visible now?


Hi Rene,


Overall you need more - more detail in your profile, more portfolio items, client testimonials (now you can add them from outside Upwork), and more information about your employment history from 2011 to the present. 


If you write "newbie," you're guaranteed to get scammed. I would remove that from your first line. Also, the first two sentences are what a client sees in a search so make sure it stands out from the thousands of top rated and experienced Upwork freelancers.  


You're in a competitive field and right now there is nothing that proves you're an experienced writer, thinker, creator. 


Hope that helps!

Thank you very much, Robin. 


I will make a few changes as you suggested. Much appreciated
