Welcome to the Upwork Community! We know landing that first contract can be challenging, so we built Upwork Academy and threads like this to help you get started. With a lot of resources and so little time, we wanted to put together some recommendations for you to check out first:
Do you have a specific question or maybe a tip to offer? Reply to this post and share your question, advice, or words of inspiration!
Hi I'm Dane this is my first work from home job as English and Filipino translator, subtitle writer, and closed captioner. Though I don't have experience, I do have a knowledge to edit some of the mistranslated and misspelled words and synchronized it perfectly which is from my favorite shows, I do that as a hobby.
I'm new in upwork community and someone invited me to look at the job he posted. I've already sent a proposal but I'm little bit nervous about the interview. Any advice since this is my first interview from work from home job. Thanks
Have you even read Andrea's (moderator) main post?
Start there to create a proper profile. Now yours is nothing. You won't get a job that way, just maybe some scam.
By the way, you must write your profile in English.
I am trying to get job but still didn't get any. Please evaluate my profile and let me know if there are any adjustments I need make.
You should really scoll to the top of this page and read Andrea from Upwork's suggestions. Please follow them. Too many people are asking for advice and not even adapting anything of what Upwork representatives are offering.
Your profile is nothing. Just a couple of sentences that will not get you more than responses or invitations from scammers.
Besides, I'm afraid you're lying. What about your level of English? Sorry, but it looks like it's nothing more than basic.
Not even the title, which makes no sense, is well written.
And let's not mention the presentation. You are not "I am experienced in English language".
Read this, everything, links included before you start submitting proposals.
