How To Get Hired On Upwork | The Complete Guide For New Freelancers

Learn how to start earning money with your design skills by using freelancing sites like Upwork & Freelancer

Freelancing sites provide an incredible opportunity for a talented designer with no experience or traditional education to get hired for their first design projects and start gaining valuable, real-world experience while earning some cash at the same time.

Sites like Upwork and Freelancer allow anyone to set up a profile, upload a portfolio, and start bidding on freelance gigs that were posted by regular people looking to have logos (and other items) designed. In fact, this is how I got my start as a graphic designer. For several years I was earning a full-time living by using sites like Upwork.

Meet Upwork

Upwork is a platform that connects clients and designers. Here’s a look at my own profile back when I used the site on a full-time basis…

The Challenge…

The problem with freelancing sites is that they are crowded and highly-competitive. As a first-time designer with no reviews on your profile yet, it can be very difficult to get hired for your first gig because you will be competing with dozens of other established and reputable designers for the same jobs.

Getting hired for your first project is going to require more than just an impressive portfolio. You must know how to create a compelling profile page, learn how to differentiate legitimate job posts from poor job posts, and most importantly, write an enticing proposal that will make you stand out from the other designers. Without the ability to sell, you won’t be able to get very far.
