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!
I don't know why but from last 2 months I didn't find my first client. I deleted my 2 years old account and make new one to build a profile from zero but still didn't work can some help me out
I looked at your profile and my suggestion for you is to focus on specific skills and areas that are your strongest. As you know Web development is such a broad and massive category with so many technologies and skills. I think if you make your profile less general and focus on more specific technologies and skills, it would help you land better jobs at higher rates. Yes you might not be able to apply to all jobs with a focused profile but I think you'll have a better chance of landing the job.
I'll have to say I'm not an expert on this but that's just my general opinion and mindset.

I agree with you very much! No one looks at the moderator or other answers to post in the community.
I answer the same 3 questions daily-to help people in the community.
Beginning to feel that they do not want to view the learning path videos in the Academy at all.
I have to watch them all the time. Right now, I even had to send customer support 'screen shots' for proof that I viewed them so that I could earn badges.
This isn't fair. I wish others would review the entire threads for advice, rather than wanting things spoon feed just for them.

Hello there, I have been on been on Upwork since 2022 and I have not seen any job or invitations.
Can you please help out with what to get more views and job.
And this is my Upwork profile link; https://zeep.ly/NFwbH
You should follow the information as mentioned by mary, Andrea G, etc.
In my suggestion you should make your profile complete, apply for the latest jobs. Your starting is some how difficult but it will be fruitful in your future.
I was also wondering for the first job, but I got my job and now I am happy.
