Hey Faruque, please use all 15 Skills and add your Portfolio. Thanks!

Thank you for your reply William. I'll try it out.

The first thing that you'd need to do is acquire professional equipment and software and  record a demo reel. However, having a "great voice" is not the only requirement, so if you think that it's going to be easy to get hired on that basis alone, then you're in for a rude awakening. Most Upwork clients are Americans and will want to hire somebody with an American accent. I suggest that you do some research before you waste any time and money.

Thank you for your reply Christine. I will definitely keep that in mind. This account of mine has been rotting for years so I was just trying to figure it out.

It does not matter whether you think you have a great voice, but rather what people think about your pitch, rhythm, interpretation, and so on. 

 

But your main issue now is that nobody will hire you for voiceover or any other jobs. In your profile there are random skills and work experiences like industrial engineer in a garments factory, translation, "computer genius", sales executive, assistant teacher in an art school, video editing and customer service. Many skills mean no skills to an average client.

As a client, one of the first things I look for when freelancers apply to my jobs is if they have many skills like the original poster lists. And then I DON'T HIRE those people.

No wonder why. I also do not agree with the suggestion to use all the 15 skills allowed.

I made those a long time ago, I'm not even sure what's written there lol. I will change them soon. 

 

 

 

I'm sorry I didn't understand you Preston, can you please explain. 

If I want to hire a pastry chef, I will hire a pastry chef.

 

I will not hire a German language translator swim coach poet bricklayer pastry chef.

Ahaa, I understand what you mean.

Thank you so much for the reply. I'll try to tweak my account into this gene of work. I'm actually not sure what else I'd do apart from voice gigs. Would love to have a meeting with you someday if you're free!
