Hi, I am MAGDALINE from Spain living in UAE. I am a trained secretary and I have been off employment since 2017. This was due to going back to study, relocation and family matters. It has been difficult finding a job and when a friend introduced me to this app, I thought I could be of good service to companies and individuals one more time.


I am a good listener, pay attention to small details, fast typist, confidential and keen on meeting deadlines.  I am proficient in ms office applications.


I would love to know how to make my profile outstanding to attract job offers.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Sarannya Mohanan and currently based in India. My Bachelor's in Business Administration was completed in 2006, and now I am currenlty pursuing a certificate course in using AI in business growth. My area of expertise would be in administration (everything from VA to Operations ), and so I am looking for jobs online where I can offer my services to clients who require them.


From the community here, I would love to have discussions and attain knowledge from experts in the field, to know the latest tool in the kit, ways to deal with difficult clients and learn from their (expert's) experience. 


If asked who inspires me, I would say Nick Vujicic does, I am truly inspired by his resilience and positivity in the midst of his enormous physical and emotional challenges.

If he did all what he does with the limitations he has, what can be achieved if we overcome our limitations?


Looking forward to making new connections and getting to know you

Hey guys. I've just joined. I'm a UI Designer from London that specialises in Figma. I've been doing this for quite a while now, and by 'a while', I remember when websites were designed in photoshop and Macromedia Flash was all the rage (This should give you an indication of my age...40...it's 40 😁).


I joined Upwork to start building my own fate with my career and moving away from corporate ladder, freeing me to design the way I love to. I'm sure there are a few of you that this resonates with so would love to hear more of your experience and how you're making it work.


Anybody wants to say hello, please do...I love a good chat 😊
