I don't get it. They won't accept my profile but If I have a client with whom I want to work with, then they'll open my account to work with my client ONLY. Why would I bring you a client since you are not accepting my profile? (Question from my friend who is trying to start working on UpWork)
Upwork will now review new freelancer registrations to determine if our marketplace does not have opportunities for them based on their combination of skills and experience. For more information about this, please check this announcement from Garnor. Your friend will also receive a notification email about this step with more information. Please have your friend refer to the email sent to him. Thank you!
Nice to be here. But I have Submitted by account 4/5 times with different category and different profession. I completed by study in Textile Engineering and Fashion Designing. I have other skill too such as Designing, Some Web work, HRM, Search Engine Optimization and Social Media Marketing. I tried with those. But you are not approve my account. Please help me approve my account. And don't tell me there is no work in upwork. Give me Solution.

The solution is to spend a few years aquiring and confirming an in-demand skill and then trying again.
Wildly attempting to get approved by throwing half-baked skills at your profile in casee something lets you in is a bad strategy.
Upon checking, your account has been approved. Having a complete profile with your work history and list of skills can help a potential client learn whether you are the right person for their project. Here's a very helpful article on how you can enhance your feelancer profile. Add necessary skills, certifications, portfolio, and the like to make your profile stand out to potential clients.
Hi Upwork community,
I am posting this on behalf of a friend because she is experiencing technical difficulties posting it. Here is her post:
I have been trying to get my profile approved as an editor and it has been rejected 3 times now because there is insufficient demand for my skills or expertise.
1) Is there a glut of editors in general on Upwork (proofreaders, copyeditors, developmental editors)? I am game to develop my skills but don't want to hone them in the wrong direction if there are certain types of editing that are much more in demand. The skills I have posted on my profile are: Proofreading, Copyediting, Technical Editing, Developmental Editing, Content Editing, Story Editing, Content Writing, Copywriting
2) I have been told not to add anything to my portfolio as it's not necessarily helpful as an editor. Could this be affecting my approval?
Thanks in advance.
Looking forward to being a part of the Upwork community.
We're sorry to hear that your friend's registration was not accepted. If she has more relevant skills or experiences to add, she can update and resubmit her profile and we’ll take another look to see if there is a demand for the new skills. If she doesn't have additional skills or experience to add now, she can always update her profile in the future. She can check out this article for tips on building a great profile
We hope this information helps!
