Hi all, I am Sharjeel a professional Frontend developer, Web Designer and also a graphic designer. I am using this site from last 6 to 7 months but still do not get any job. I send daily 6 to 7 offers when I have contacts and also offer for 50% discount from there total budgets but nobody contact me. So can anybody guide me how can I start my work on this site? Thank you
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just keep applying. Its tough to get that first job, usually a kick*** portfolio can help you land that first gig - Most clients on upwork who have a history on here aren't super likely to hire a newbie with no work history on the platform.
I got lucky with my first gig, I got a client who was new to the site. So it was a perfect fit.
It was tough to get my first job. Eventually one came up which was just right for me, and I pulled out all the stops to get it. I made a proof-of-concept demo that showed the client I understood what he wanted and could deliver. I should say that this was an Excel VBA macro, and not a major software development. Still, it was a few hours work.
