hi NOOB

Tell us three things about yourself... preferably deviant.

Hah! 

 

1. I have a sensitivity to chocolate that makes me very sad.

 

2.  My car's check engine light has been on since 2005.

 

3. My mother still gives me sneakers every year for Christmas. I'm 33...

 I love you, noob. Let's get married and do crimes.

1) Try white chocolate.

 

2) My car's check engine light has been once since 2009 - it's the bad knock sensor.

 

3) Mom bought me sneakers when I was young  ... and that was a long time ago.

Hi Mat,

 

Thanks for responding to Jennifer's request. I hope Jennifer can now follow up on your comment with some valuable (not deviant) advice in regards to your Upwork career :). She's one of the most experienced freelancers actively participating in the Community, hence the guru status and pink hair.

Jennifer,,,, I don't think "Vlad" is making fun of you. You're interpreting it the wrong way. I think he likes you. lol

heehee well thank you Kathy for having my back. 😉  I am just joking though. 😉 Vlad knows this I think.

Hi Jennifer,

 

Not at all, just "highlighting" the facts :).

 

I do believe that all users, in particular new ones, can learn a lot from your posts regarding managing clients and your approach to freelancing. I'm sure others users enjoy reading your Coffee Break posts as much as I do, and wanted to give the OP a chance to get some productive advice on this thread as well as the entertaining warm welcome. Hope you don't mind my informal tone, replying to active members like yourself in the Community sometimes feels more like communicating with acquaintances.

 Well I am glad they woke you up, VLAD DADDY.  U know I'm a delicate little snowflake and I got all these feels and then my pink hair is just to take it out on the man.

Hi Matt, 


Welcome to freelancing, and Upwork! I would recommend that you visit Vladimir's thread on "Getting Started on Upwork." It has all the necessary links to different blog posts and community threads that will help you on your journey to freelancing. 

Goodluck, and happy working!

Thank you!

Welcome Matt - you'll find many rare breeds of people *runs away* over here. 😛

Wishing you'd reach a great success in your freelancing career!


Hi,

I'm new too... I sent more than 10 proposals, but nobody is answering or contacting me.

I'm not sure if they get my proposal.

How can I find out?

 

Greetings

Barbara

Welcome, NOOB.

 

You can't is the answer to your question, but you can tell us 3 things about you. Perferably, deviant stuff.

Hi Barbara,

 

Jennifer isn't quite right about that. Don't tell her I said it though.Woman Wink

 

If your proposals show under your proposal page, it means they have been delivered to the clients.

 

Unfortunately, clients don't always get back to every freelancer who applied to their job. In order to stand out and catch their attention, you can expand your profile overview a bit and add more information about your skills and experience. Adding relevant portfolio items is also a great way to attract clients' attention to your profile. Also make sure your proposals are well-written and specifically address requirements in the job post.

No one buys me sneakers. Or chocolate, for that matter.

This thread is terrible now because VLAD DADDY hurt my feelings and as you know I'm a delicate little snowflake and nobody has made that 2am emergency phone call to VLAD DADDY and everything is not ok in my world rn and it's all because of him.

 

VLAD DADDY do you really want to hurt me? Do you really want to make me cry?

Really? I'm enjoying it.
