Why Does Nobody Hire Me?

Hello again - I just wanted to say, that my persistence has paid off. I have several ongoing clients and I am really enjoying my Upwork experience. I maybe only get as far as an interview with 1 out of 30 submissions (guestimating) and have not passed all the interviews. But it seems there is a snowball effect once you get a few jobs. So my advice to my self 3 months ago, just be persistent and patient, keep tweeking and improving your profile. And I also liked the advice to just focus on one skill. Thanks Upwork!

I'd second what Scott just said. I've been on Upwork nearly a year now. It took a month to get my first job, a couple of weeks for the next, and I thought I'd cracked it. Then I got nothing more for two months. But I persisted and eventually things started to take off. I'm not using many connects these days, as a lot of my work comes from existing clients and some from invitations, though I anticipate there will be times when my connect usage goes up again.


I found it helpful to specialise too.

I have the same problem I have applied to many jobs, I almost dont have connects and nobody even talked to me, except someone trying to buy my account (probably a scam). I dont know if its anything with my profile, I would apreciate if someone could help me and tell me what I am doing wrong... What can I do?
