Need help, how can I get work on Upwork?

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

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.

Thanks Zac G

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.

Thanks, Richard W, That's means never give up and just try and again try 🙂 cause getting the first job is tough but not impossible.

I'm looking for my first job here and so far unsuccessfully. I hope that luck will come to us and everyone will find a good project.

 

I now would like reduce the cost of my hour, maybe this will speed up the search for the first job

 

Good luck

I  am also struggling with finding projects. I have been on here for a few months and I apply to as many jobs that I feel I qualify for but I am not getting any invitations. Any tips on how I an improve this ?

re: "Any tips on how I an improve this?"

 

Yes, here is a tip:

 

You begin your pofile overview text by identifying yourself as "an organized, fast-typist (66WPM), hard worker and fast learner."

 

Don't be that.
