Hello Upwork Community,
I am new to this community and am excited at the opportunities available here. I recently received my first job (after submitting about 30 applications with no experience at upwork) and am wondering if someone would be kind enough to take a look at my profile and provide me with some feedback? My background as a whole is in mental health, however throughout my education and jobs I have had since I was a teenager, I have gained the skills that brought me here on this website.
I would very much appreciate any feedback you have or suggestions on how I can improve.
Looks excellent to me. I would suggest perhaps learning and studying Data science. Its more in demand with great career prospect and plenty of online learning options.
Just a friendly heads up from a data scientist...
You're going to need much more math and programming skill/experience to accurately bill yourself as a data scientist.
I would lose the Data Entry in your title. That will only lead to scam jobs. Focus a bit more on your schools and less on your education. Initially, the client only sees the first 2 or 3 lines of your profile so use that real estate to highlight your skills.
The same thing is true of your proposals. Initially, the client only sees the first couple of lines so be sure to address their needs and your ability to help them with those needs. I would also add at least a couple of things to your portfolio. I know it's difficult with editing and proofreading but try to come up with something.
All in all, it looks good. It takes a while to find your niche here. Be patient. There is loads of valuable information about freelancing both on this site and on the internet. Take it all in and evaluate what you read. Remember, as a freelancer you are essentially a business owner so be sure you portray yourself confidently. Good luck!
My education is listed on my profile, and I looked at it on view my profile as other see it and I can see my education listed. I did receive a contract through Upwork, I'm curious if anyone else sees nothing there as well? Are you looking at it on a computer or mobile device?
