Hi Ankush,

 

Being inactive does not affect a user's account or their reputation. Just make sure to change your visibility and availability on your profile and consider setting the out-of-office responder in Messages.

 

Thank you.

Yes.

Because if nobody wants to hire a freelancer, then there is absolutely no point in that freelancer being on the platform. It wastes their time and the clients' time who have to wade through dozens of hopeless proposals. It is much like a shop: It makes no sense to keep goods on the shelves that nobody wants to buy or which just get stolen.

 

There is nothing much to worry about, because either you'll get hired (although your profile is extremely weak - who would hire a graphic designer with no portfolio, no experience, no education, no work history and a very lazy overview??) or, if you don't get hired anyway, being removed is no hardship, because you were just wasting your time.

I would suggest you fix your profile first. Then apply. At the moment, with that profile as it is, there would be little point.. Then see how it goes. But the vast majority of new freelancers never win a single contract.

 

Of the near 300 000 graphic design freelancers that come up in search, over 250 000 have never earned a Dollar
