About This Class

In this course, I'm going to share my tips for building an Upwork profile. We'll walk through the strategy I recommend if you're brand new to Upwork, how to get traction when you have no portfolio or job history, how Upwork's search algorithms work, what clients are really looking for when hiring a freelancer and a bunch more.

The goal is for you to have a complete profile that puts your best foot forward for getting work on Upwork and sharing with you what I learned freelancing on Upwork for several years.
