I've literally never heard anyone say they got a job here after submitting just four proposals. I'm sure it's happened, but it's certainly not the norm. I had 20+ years in my field when I started on Upwork, and it took about 30 proposals before I got my first offer.

As depressing as this sounds, I totally get you. I submitted more than 20 proposals and have got nothing. It's very disheartening especially if you've got experience already. But don't lose hope! I do believe there are people who will see your worth. Though they're few, they're still there. Good luck.

Just got to keep going, guys. I've been on here four years and done more than 50 jobs but I still only get about one in eight of those I apply for. It's a numbers game. In the meantime, make your profile and portfolio as good as you can.

Anupama, you do data entry according to your profile. If you submitted proposals to 4 data entry jobs, all of them probably had 50 or more proposals submitted, so all things being equal, you had maybe a 4 out of 50 chance of being hired. So you will probably need to apply many more times before you get hired, if you keep applying for data entry jobs.
