Hi,

Thanks for your posting. I reviewed your profile and you need some changes your title. You should write a Web Developer or Graphic Designer. you need to modify your overview also. After that, you write eye catchy cover letter and submit the job hopefully you will win the job.

Thanks to using Upwork!

#happy #freelancing!

Hey Joynul A,

 

I have change everything as you suggested me. I even have submitted  different - different eye catchy cover letter for proposals but it doesn't work to me. 

Is there any other way to win a job ?

I have no idea what skills you are offering. Be specific. Create a catchy headline. Portfolio pieces you have any? Tests are always nice.

You know what the matter about not getting job is you don't have work history on upwork profile.

 

I have only experience on upwork till now is If you don't have a job score, then you'll not eligible for any job! 

No matter how strong is your profile, How creative  is your portfolio, how eye catchy is your proposal... No one care untill you don't have job score.

 

People don't care about your unqiue talent... All they need is a work history and job score which newbies on upwork can't get it.

 

I know this will hurt you, but it's truth about upwork!

Sincerely,

Manmeet Singh

Hi Manmeet,

 

Just to confirm that Upwork does not work like this. 

 

Please read this Help Article to find out how to Find Work and how to submit proposals on jobs that you find to suit your skills and experience.

 

Also, check out these threads Getting Started on Upwork and Hiring Headquarters and find there some excellent articles and learn more about Upwork. 

 

 Afterwards, if you have any questions feel free to follow up in the Community and we'll gladly help you with them.
