I my opinion, Its look like starting profile. You can take help and make it more complete by adding Accoumplishments, Certifications etc. You can see my profile for starting guidance.
Hi I've had my account for a year now and have not really understand how this works. My main concern is how legit is this. Cause i lost interest when my friend thought she got a job. wasted 5 days interpreting for someone from Spanish to English and in the end found out it was a scam. I would like to know what is my status name if I'm looking to work for someone. What does FREELANCER means. Does it refer to me as someone looking to work for someone or me hiring someone to work for me?
I hope you undertand what I'm trying to say.
Thanks for taking time to listen.
I'm looking flawe forward to your response.
Thank you for your message. I am sorry to hear about your friend's experience if this was on Upwork. Let’s start with the basics here at Upwork. I suggest you take a few Upwork Academy courses to help you get started:
I have just recently joined Upwork on March 29 th. I am still waiting to get my profile approved. Not knowing this , after creating my profile, I immediately applied wand used my coins to boost my profile for clients to see . Not sure how long I have to wait to get everything started. I have lost my coins or not sure what u guys call and lost that job opportunity as well .
please let me know , how long this process take ? When I will be able to start working on getting my jobs ?

Even I am a newbie here and can understand your enthusiasm. Let me share some tips and suggestions given to me :
1) Complete your profile and make sure to add portfolios if you have any.
2) Go through the learning paths provided so that you become familiar with how things work.
3) And finally, enjoy the process even it demands some patience from you.
I hope these points will help you to get going. All the best!!!
