    Answer: When you're just starting out, be on the lookout for projects of roughly your skill-level posted on upwork. These can be found by searching new and upcoming gigs in categories you think you might fit. If you spend some time (15-30 minutes) moderating these posts and answering questions on related topics like "When am I too inexperienced to work on a project?" or “What’s the best way to get started?", then profiles that allow newbies will pop up quicker, which many contractors are looking for when freshly posting new jobs.

    Contributors get an initial 3k stars (any more than that doesn't seem to help much), and it takes 10 hours of completed work at a fairly high price

    1. Sign up for an account on Upwork.com (or at freelancer or another site like it). 2. Create your profile (do your best to create a professional sounding description). Make sure you're uploading at least one photo of yourself, and be sure to answer the questions in detail about what your skills are and any job experience you've had. 3. The key is making sure that everything is very accurate so people can't tell if you're lying or not, so spell check everything before submitting! 4. Choose the categories of jobs you think would work for you - there's likely several to choose from, even if it's just different types of customer service gigs or data entry roles etc.

    If you're on the site to find work, then be sure that your profile is up-to-date. Be open to feedback on your profile and continue updating it until you are comfortable showcasing yourself to potential hiring managers. To get more jobs sent right to your inbox, follow freelancers of the industry by scrolling down and clicking "follow". You can also favorite particular postings or post a new entry or update with relevant information so job posters know what they want! Hiring managers often create competitive bidding sessions for contract work. Choose between "creating an opportunity" or posting yourself as available based on how you would like the hiring manager to contact you.

    This depend on what your background is in. If you have a degree in something related, it's going to make things a whole lot easier because people won't be able to tell the difference between you and someone with a degree. If not, show off your skills in a portfolio or blog or portfolio. One trick I use is to find someone hiring for the type of work I want, then finding out their company name and searching for them on LinkedIn. So instead of "find freelance job," try "get employed at [company]," And when choosing jobs from companies that contact me about employment, I no longer care if they require degrees-just so long as they can give me some legitimate experience doing what I want to do.
