Any idea and guidelines how to become succesful?
First of all, hide any test scores that are below average. Secondly, there is a wealth of information available on Upwork to help you get started smoothly as a freelancer. There are also webinairs to watch. Read the Terms of Service and understand completely how the platform works.
Good luck with your new career!
