Hello,

 

I'm new to Upwork and seeking assistance in finding a suitable job. My expertise lies in copywriting, with a specialization in SEO - encompassing both on-site and off-site SEO strategies. I have a knack for crafting persuasive newsletters and possess some knowledge about CHAT GPT. While I have a strong preference for long-term collaborations, I am also open to engaging in shorter-term projects.

 

Thank you for your help in advance. 

 

Best regards,
Maja

Hi! I'm Elizabeth. I'm learning Transcribing . I am currently living in Uganda , Africa

 

I'm hoping to learn to be successful in my career and I'd love to hear from others how to attract first clients. 

I love to read novels, from fantasy to historial as well as autobiographies  .I love making powerpoints. It's so much fun. I have been really into art ever since I was in my senior year of high school. I find inspiration in the novels I read and fashion in the sense of art . I  spend most of my time on my laptop and the current book that I am reading is from an  online reading platform  and my favourite book of all time is a comic book called Dork diaries which loved reading as a preteen. 

I'm currently studying BBA in Uganda Christian University,

Hey there!

My name is Carlos. I'm from Valencia, Spain, but I'm currently living in Ljubljana. I have a BA in History and a MA in Cultural Anthropology, but I'm looking for any job (in person or remote) that can help me to survive and get work experience, even if it's not related to my field. In any case, let me know if you need some advise with History or cultural issues, or maybe if you need a translator (I speak Spanish, English, Catalan, and a bit of Slovene).

Thank you for reading.

Have a good day โค๏ธ

Hello, I'm a Brazilian newcomer on Upwork, and I've started a long-term job. However, I've noticed that I don't have any formal connection with the company through Upwork. How do I establish a contract with the company? The company is verified.

How you've started the job? Contacted by them outside of Upwork like Telegram?

Hi I'm Asen, I am currently a client and potentially a future freelancer on Upwork and I am posting here to prove to Upwork that I am not a bot as my credit card payments are being rejected for the first job I want to hire.

This is very frustrating and not a great onboarding experience at all.

Hope this gets resolved soon so that I can hire my freelancer.

Take care

Hi Asen,

 

Thank you for your message. I checked your account and I see that your card is already active. Feel free to message us if you need further assistance.
