Its a welcoming community and platform.
My name is Rufaro and I'm also brand new.
I like data analysis.
I need help in 2 areas.
1. Can someone kindly check my profile and see if it is easy to follow and clear enough to attract relevant projects.
2. I have been trying to figure out some mechanism on this platform for interacting with prospective clients or to learn about some of their problems in data analysis and handling.
Kindly give me the links.
Many thanks for your time.
Thank you for your message! I reviewed your profile and have some suggestions:
Here are some additional tips for writing a great Title and Overview.
As for interacting with prospective clients, there is not a way for a freelancer to initiate contact with a client prior to submitting a proposal.
I hope this helps!
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?
Thank you for your message. Your profile overview is short compared to the average. Upwork’s research shows clients see it as a positive signal if the profile is well written and comprehensive. Therefore, consider crafting your overview as a pitch to prospective clients.
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!
