Hi All,
I am Indhumathi, and I reside in Riga, Latvia. I have been here for almost a year and a half, but my job search has not been successful. Up work caught my attention and I created an account to become a freelancer.

As a Certified Scrum Master, I am interested in learning project management, and it would be great if people could help me land my first job. I have a strong interest in learning new things and am open to any job that would fit my profile.

Agile is my top inspiration because it teaches consistency in delivering value.

It would be great if I get any help to crack my first job. Any feedback on how to improve my profile would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone,


My name is Darius Barsony, and I'm thrilled to be joining this vibrant community of freelancers here on Upwork. As an MSc student in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam, I bring a passion for cutting-edge technology and a knack for creative problem-solving to every project.

With a deep-seated love for exchanging ideas through meaningful conversations, I'm an outgoing individual who thrives in collaborative environments. I believe that the best solutions arise from the collective power of diverse perspectives, and I'm eager to connect with fellow freelancers to embark on exciting ventures together.

My academic journey has immersed me in the realms of Deep Learning, Geometric Deep Learning, and Reinforcement Learning, and I'm eager to leverage this knowledge to tackle challenging projects. Alongside my studies, I've also had the privilege of gaining practical experience as a freelance AI consultant, developing bespoke solutions that empower students and educators alike.

Beyond the world of code and algorithms, I find joy in exploring the art of stand-up comedy, delving into philosophical musings, and hitting the basketball court for a spirited game. These diverse interests fuel my creativity and add an extra dimension to the work I do.

I'm looking forward to collaborating, learning, and growing together with all of you.

I am Jennifer D from the West Indies, Jamaica.  I am finding Upwork Training Academy very informative.  However, it seem to be taking me longer than I thought to get started on a job.  Can someone guide me through a faster process?

Hi Jennifer, I suggest you start looking at jobs and submitting your proposals now. Go back to the Upwork Academy to continue completing the training, but don't stop. If you need help in the process, use "?" at the top right, next to your profile picture on Upwork.

Hi All,

I'm Troy, a Finance professional and Excel enthusiast of 20 plus years in the auto industry in Michigan.

I joined Upwork to take charge of how and when I work, so I intend to study what is and isn't effective for others toward that goal.

I'm inspired by anyone who can be their own boss, so I think I stumbled onto the right site!

Hi Troy

I agree with you that Upwork is the best way to achieve this. I hope that very soon we will be our own bosses.

Hey Upworkers,

I have been a freelance content writer crafting quality blog posts for almost three years for local clients (some were international, but the work was ghostwritten and outsourced from local clients).

I am from Pakistan and am learning a lot of things via two platforms, especially:

From Upwork (my all-time go-to place when I want to get inspiration for my new blog topic from my niche) 

Another is LinkedIn (Where I often roam around to find like-minded people from my niche and learn new trends from the experience of various professionals to get knowledge about practical aspects of my niche.)

I am inspired by Neil Patel, Alex Cattoni, Khalil Ullah Khan, Brian Dean, and many more.
