Upwork has said that it has far more registered freelancers than are needed to serve its client base, so you apparently will have to distinguish yourself in some way in order to be accepted as a new freelancer on the platform.

 

You could try to add or emphasize in your application to Upwork how unique your skillset is in your area of expertise.

 

Good luck.
