Not being hired


hi everyone! I am new to the Upwork community and I'm really looking forward and eager to start completing some work for clients. I have been applying to a ton of different jobs, and have even had to purchase more connects. I am getting no feedback at all or even interview offers. Is there something that I am doing wrong? I tried to keep my cover letters very short so that clients aren't bothered by reading long paragraphs. Is there something I should be doing differently? Is my profile too confusing? Any advice is welcome! I would say my strengths are flyer, graphic, design, logos, menus, brochures – that kind of thing!

you have to read the job post and replay according to it, mentioning some keywords. replay with a direct and clean approach that will define your client's needs and delivery. be active and if possible buy a freelancer plus membership.

Hi Sara,


Please use two of your Skills keywords in the Title, modify the Summary into four short paragraphs, use all 15 Skills, and add a Project Catalog. In addition, click the Academy link on the top of this page for success TIPS. Thanks!
