I a new one on the upwork, and I have send 10 proposals. I am an electrical engineer. I didn't get any answer from the client, and I don't know what are the further steps. In every proposal I have a cover letter, but I didn't get any message from the client as a feedback.
I need an advices for my next steps.
Thanks a lot
Don't give up just yet. It takes some time and perseverance to get that first job. You may also work on your profile more and add more information about your experience, past employment and skills. You can also add a few portfolio items and take a few tests to showcase your skills.

Unfortunately we don't have that statistic but you can find posts from new users who have won their job within a day after joining Upwork. Keep building your profile and review your bidding strategy if you haven't succeed in getting hired thus far.
only 10 proposals and you feel desperate?
Let me see my status...
Uh oh,...117 poposals sent, 12 - 15 clients answer but only get 9 jobs.
And i get 8 invitations to interview, only one that make it.
Unfortunately Upwork isn't a magic job site. It can take time to get jobs and build a reputation. A lot also depends on the number of proposals that a client gets and your competition. Just keep on trying and you should eventually become established here on Upwork.
Best of Luck,
