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.

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?

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.

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.

Hi Everyone!


I first found Upwork in 2017 while working as a French-to-English translator. Now I've been a member of the Upwork team for nearly five years!


Welcome to all the Upwork newbies! I wish you all the best of luck on your freelancing journey.

Hi Bethany and everyone in this group!

I have just discovered Upwork and look forward to increasing my client base and hopefully learn some interesting new things along the way.

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!
