Newbie freelancer



I am a new freelancer and I am a university student with no past experiences. I have set up my profile as best as I could with a portfolio of my work sample. I have applied to more than 20 jobs and haven't heard from any one of them.

Can anyone guide me what should I do to get response from clients?

It could take months - and hundreds of proposals - for somebody with no experience to get a response from a client, but if you have an outstanding portfolio and/or a niche skill, then your chances will be better. Your profile is currently set to "not public" so you should change that if you want more specific advice.

My profile has been set to private by Upwork because of no response.

Thank you!
