I've applied to nearly 74 jobs in the past 2 months and have been hired by 2 clients and interviewed by 3 other clients ( but didn't win jobs).
I'm always improvising my proposal according to the clients's project and provide relevant samples in the proposals.
Could you please correct me where am I going wrong?
I have an urgent question regarding an interview test that I've received from an Upwork plus client, this interview test was sent by email from the client, I need a guidance for the process since I am new.
Thanks a lot for your quite response.
Thank you for the tips! I am just starting out and would like feedback on my profile. I have both administrative assistant skills and would like to work remotely using those skills. I also have experience proofreading, something that I am interested in doing more of. Is combining both skills into one profile too much? I definitely need to work on my proposals so I’ll check out the links listed.
It's not uncommon to have multiple skills. Fortunately, we offer Specialized Profiles which allows you to create up to three different profile overviews. As such, you could create one for administrative assistant work and another for proofreading.
I reviewed your profile and have some suggestions:
I also curated a short list of articles that I think you'll find helpful:
If you do decide to build out two specialized profiles, don't hesitate to ask for feedback on those as well, if you'd like.
I hope this helps!
I added a specialized profile. Do I need to redo my Admin profile to Administrative Assistant work only? I have many questions - can I work one on one with someone for guidance in creating this? Do I post a job on Upwork to do so?
The general (default profile) will be labeled "All Work" and will be a general introduction to the services you offer. Then you have your specialized profiles that focus on specific skills. So, yes, I would suggest creating a second specialized profile for admin support work. Also, don't forget to click "Publish" on your specialized profile once you have it how you want it (though it can be edited at any time).
While you certainly can create a client account and hire someone to assist you, the Community has a wealth of information. If you don't find the answers you're looking for when searching, don't hesitate to make a post asking for help or suggestions. We have a dedicated team as well as numerous freelancers who are ready and excited to help!
Thank you for your message. It's ultimately up to you if you want to continue to offer both services on Upwork, but you're using the Specialized Profiles correctly. I do have a couple of suggestions for improvement of your profile
The beginning of your profile overview displays in prospective client search results and it’s your first 200-character pitch. So, your first sentence should include clear, relevant information about your primary skill sets and expertise. To give a clear impression you’re the person the client wants to talk to, here are some additional tips for writing a great Overview.
