Hi Bakhtawar N.,

First change your profile picture. Show your full face.


Before starting the work...

Know what not to do here.

For Example...

  • Don't go outside UpWork no matter who calls you. Do the work in UpWork.
  • Do not share any of your personal contact information.
  • Don't ask for money/5 star rating in message box. and etc.

If you need an answer to any question, search your question first in the community. If you don't get an answer, post your question. Because you will get late reply when you post.

Hi Anastasiia T.,

If you really want a job, there are many jobs here. But, before starting work, know how UpWork works. This will help in the long run. There is a lot of competition in all freelance sites. However, there is still a need for Good Workers.

Have A Nice Day.
