Noted. This is very helpful.

hey can you help me by providing example of any good proposal? I'm new to upwork

I usually make mine as simple and short as possible. What I can adviceis the format im using when submitting proposal.

• Greet the client
• Get a brief description of the skill related to the job offer you are applying for.

• You can add your recent experience and it would be better if you can attach a file as well
• Tell them how you can help them with the job.


I joined this community today with a hope that i can get work .i need all community writers/ members to feel free to guide me , please have a look on my profile to let me know what else is needed. So, that i can attract some clients to get some work to start from this platform.

Thank you all .

Hey! I'm new too... thanks for the encouragement... right now for me it all seems pretty discouraging...

I want to work with freelancer to improve my skills and improve my script writing.

I agree with you.

I am still new to this. My account is still difficult to activate. Please help


The same here, I’m equally having difficulties in completing my account

You have a quite long span on Upwork. I am just starting out here. 24 will be my year. 

Nice to meet you. Thank you for sharing this informations.

Hi Lydia O

Hello everyone

I joined Upwork in 2022 and I've been trying to navigate my way through it and land my first job. I hope I can gain more insight from experienced freelancers in the field and also get more business opportunities.


I am Derah and I have been on Upwork for almost 6 months now! Does anyone
have a genuine way to navigate it?

Hello Chidera, 

I am not sure what your issue is. Do you need to find work, you can search from your profile. so start there and see the options you got. Is this about academy and similar, go to academy at upwork.

Can you please describe your concern so we can help you?

Since my concerns are the same, can you say more how to land on a work. Is it acceptable from my profile section? 

Hello Joshua,

When I started I looked for any work that fitted my experiance. Opt for shorter and easy work to get it done, get a review and deliver a good work. Start with low pay as they are easiest to win, soon you will find and win higher pay projects. Win small and grow, then you will be able to live from this. 

This is really good advice. And, not just for freelancing either but for all aspects of working and trying to build a reputation you can earn from!

Great advice! New here and seem to be plodding along... Thanks for the insight.

Hello All!


I recently joined UpWork and have experience with content writing and Spanish + English translation. I am hoping to learn how to navigate this site to begin freelancing. Specifically, I would like to learn how to refine my search when looking for applicable, legitimate jobs. Looking forward to learning from everyone here.



Hi Sarah

Ensure the skills you have listed on your profile really speak to what you know, do, and offer. That way you should be getting jobs that are more relevant to you.

All the best!

Good afternoon, 


I joined UpWork a few days ago as I've got the desire to seek out a way in using my writing skills that have been helping others. I've been out of work for awhile and seeking a way to go back since loosing the job last year. I look forward to getting more involved with UpWork to build my writing skills and my network so we can help one another.

I became a member of Upwork in 2020 and, like many, experienced some initial challenges in securing new clients. However, through my hard work, consistency, and dedication to delivering high-quality work, I was able to secure several jobs and achieve top-rated status as a freelancer on the platform. I'm continuously seeking opportunities to learn and grow in my field, and I'm hoping to gain valuable insights from experienced freelancers. Additionally, I'm eager to take on new projects and expand my client base to further advance my career as a professional freelancer.

Thank you.

Wow, your profile is amazing sir.
