I'm new here and I am worried I can't compete with the more experienced freelancers. No bites yet. The longer I am here without work, the worse it looks on profile too.

Your profile is set to private so we can't see what your background is.  Generally, you need to focus your profile and your proposals on your experience and expertise before you came to Upwork.  Remember, we were all new once.

 

If you don't have any, freelancing may not be for you at this time.

Mary, it is set for Upwork users only.  I misunderstood what that meant.
