How I got my first freelancing job.

Today I will tell you that how I got my first freelancing project on upwork.

I created my upwork account in March, 2019.
I didn't worked since then on upwork.

But on August 1st, 2020 I thought to work, I opened upwork.

You need to get approved for submitting proposals on jobs.

So I submitted my profile for approval. Fortunately, next day I got profile approval, I was happy.

I started looking for jobs, I submitted proposals on two jobs on August 2nd, one job was of hosting managing, and other was of Farm app designing.

I got the job of Farm app designing.

Next day, on 3rd August, client offered me that job. I completed that job within 7 days on 10th August.

The budget of that job was $150, but I needed my first review with 5 star ratings, so I did that job in $60.

It was easy to got first job.

You can also try your luck, and if you start getting jobs, then go for freelancing.

really liked what you wrote and moreover the fact that you are 17. I used to be a teacher and guide highschool students how to get their first freelance jobs on fiverr. even bought the first gigs from them myself
