New Freelancer

Trying to be part of any project but without success. And in Upwork, I have not received any job offer as a freelancer so far. Please, i need a mentor to put me through, I will be grateful.

Thank you!

Hey there, welcome to Upwork!

 

Add portfolio items, otherwise nobody will believe you're an actual designer. 🙂

You have no portfolio (which is vital for graphic designers).

Your rate is way too high for somebody with zero experience here.

You declare you want to "learn more while working with clients" (you should have learned all the skills you need before applying).

"Your wish is my command" - really?

 

You do not need a mentor, taking the Academy courses and learning how to improve your profile and write good cover letters will suffice.

Hi‚ Elisa if I complete Academy courses will i get certificate? 

You will learn how to use Upwork properly, which is better than any badges.

Yeah‚ you said the right.
