Hello! I joined Upwork to explore opportunities to supplement my regular income, and start to build a portfolio for the potential to move to self-employment sometime in the future. I joined the Community because as I was browsing posted jobs, I realized that I have the education and skills, but I lack the experience with some programs or websites that clients are asking for. So I'm looking for information about some of those topics! And to meet some people that have been doing this work for a while and learn from them. Thanks for welcoming us newbies to Upwork!

Hey Bethany, I am Ashia Bibi from Gilgit, Pakistan. I am an English Linguistics and Literature student at a local university. My major formed the basis of my writing career. I joined Upwork to improve my skills in a practical and challenging environment while supporting myself financially. 

Throughout my Upwork journey, I have noticed that the better work you deliver the better opportunities and clients you will get. I have tried to implement several tips from Upwork Academy courses on my profile. Do have a look here, https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~014382b5a6e1331309.

Thank you,

Ashia

I am an English/Italian interpreter, translator and proofreader. I am a native speaker of both languages and have been working in localisation for over 30 years. I am also a qualified ESL teacher and enjoy the challenge of teaching at all levels and ages. 

Happy hunting everyone!

Any advise on creating strong proposals to attract clients as well as strengthening my profile would be greatly appreciated.

My talents lie in creating word and excel documents, writing, proof-reading, my attention to detail and accuracy is very high. I can also translate english to norwegian and vice versa.

I look forward to interacting with all of you.

Hi everybody, 

 

I've been on and off Upwork for a few years, but always feel like there is more to learn about it. My specialty is investment writing, bonds and international economics specifically. I was an analyst, portfolio manager, and head of research for a variety of banks and asset managment companies in the U.S. and Europe, but.. burnt out. So I turned to writing about the markets and really enjoy it. 

 

One of the reasons I joined this community is to connect with other investment writers. It is pretty niche work so I'd love to be able to chat with others in the field. Also, it is just nice to be able to learn and share some knowledge about writing, upwork, working from home, dealing with painful clients, or just swapping bad writer jokes.

 

Cheers, 

 

Alex

Hello everyone,

I joined Upwork to find work in writing and joining this community group to find fellow writers. 

I am always open to find new and better solutions, hearing success stories and deep failures are interesting as all can learn from them. 

I know how to find and win jobs, get reviews and now "settle back" as work is sent to me. My backgroud is in sales but I have changed my carrer to writing as I want to be free and work for myself. This i can both sell and produce so I control all and determine my life better. 

I am usually an on and off type as I have free time to go here and tehn I am preoccupied to wrtie and do not bother to come here. So if you send questions, please be patient if I am away. We can exchange faster means of contact later if you like. But we start here.

"I'm like a superhero, but instead of saving the world, I save boring scripts."
As I'm new to upwork but , "Yo! I've been "killing it" as a professional comedian in the world of art, design, and comics for the past five years. I take people's script and turn it into a comic-book masterpiece.
I'm all about working on comics, comic pages, concept art, character designs, illustrations, graphic novels, comic gifts, drawings, and even comic portraits. Now that I've made the big transition to professional art, I'm offering low rates to help bring people's comic ideas to life.

Hello everyone!

 

I am Rubina and I have been a content writer. Keen to write and learn about new things. I have been there since the website was named as ODesk. However, I was not an active member. Now I have started work on this platform again and receiving good responses from clients. Hoping to have more soon.

Good morning!

 

I joined Upwork to make money. To make money from what I enjoy doing the most, the job I'm most skilled at, the work that keeps me from getting bored. I have over 20 years of experience in technical writing, learning and development, and managing teams. I am a pandemic victim.

 

Laid off in November 2020 I am still trying to secure full-time work. I struggle every day trying to decide whether I should start my own business, continue freelancing while looking for a full-time job, or compromise my well-being by taking a job just to keep the lights on.

 

2023 has not been progressing the way I hoped - unexpected deaths, a continued lack of funds, stolen vehicles, and losing friends. Joining Upwork and several of its communities is hope - hope for a better future, a future without compromise nor eviction but one that finally turns the events of the last three years around from struggle to prosperity.

 

What do other freelancers spend their time on between projects? How do you bid on jobs without compromising your worth? Why do you freelance? Whom do you follow that produces the most value? Where do you work from that turns out your best work? What do you do to keep from getting depressed or to relieve anxiety? These are the things I need to learn from other freelancers.

 

I have been fortunate to attain a couple of interviews since joining. Had life not interfered, I feel I would have landed one of those opportunities. However, I also think "forces at play" provided interference for a reason. So I will continue to study the platform and the intricacies of how it works.  If anyone knows the formula for driving offers toward me and winning bids, please share your expertise with the community (tagging me gets my attention).

 

Thanks for the ear.

 

P.S. I sound like I have the Monday blues but I don't. Grammarly shows my confidence,  curiousity, and directness indexes to be slightly higher than a kite. I'm not re-writing this post. But I will try again tomorrow (probably in a different community). Jaha 🤷🏼‍:female_sign:

Hello! I'm new to Upwork as of today and glad to be here. I look forward to building a steady stream of clients whom I can help with writing- and editing-related projects, whether it be ghostwriting stakeholder emails/responses, presentations and website content or developing comprehensive messaging and Q&A, press releases and case studies. I also have deep roots in travel/tourism and hospitality public relations and would be glad to lend my guidance or lean into pitches and the like.

Questions for the group: How many attempts did it take before you landed your first job? How extensive are your proposals? Much of my writing has been confidential. Some of it went through a few other folks before being finalized, so it isn't 100% my own. Thoughts on how to showcase my work with these caveats? 

For fun: I wasn't raised with the Oxford comma, but I can certainly get on board with it! How about you?

My name is Timothy Mwangi Muchanchi from Kenya. I am not a writer but i got big imaginations. When am alone, i am my own motivator. I look back where i have come from and am glad that i have reached this far. My dream was and still is to make money so that i may go to school and help my mom (a widow) pay her loans that she currently has due to her supprting my studies. Widows are neglescted and are forgotten in our society. Most of the time the society would want to dis-inherit them.

I write this in the realization of the power of a woman. A widow or a single mom work tirelessly to feed, educate and nature the talents of their children. 

What i have learnt from up work, it's not easy to land a job or even land one at all. But the Upwork academy has by far taught me things that i never knew. Pros and Cons of how to get a job and how to make my profile more exciting.

From other freelancers, to those that have jobs, i would love their referral and also if i can work under them.

About business process, i would like first to work under a genuine freelancer who is or not affiliated to my career. Hopefully by the grace of God i will love to get one. Thanks.

Hello i am Shailendra Raj yogi my work to translate to many typ of
languages like a german,spenish, Chinese,urdu,France etc.

I want to translate documents all languages to cunvert and easly understand.

Greetings, Everyone. 

 

Please feel free to call me K.

There is ONE thing I wish you all to know.

I can hear any instrumental track, hell, even a measure and I can think of the lyrics of a song. I can be told what the artist wishes to convey and I can write a song. One song at a time. One measure is all I need. I get the inspiration by the artist need, desire and passion for the tract. What do you wish to convey? Tell me what you ar feeling. I CAN create your song. Your poetry.
