Start of the work week for most of the United States. This is when the stock market opens and businesses start opening across the country.
I choose Monday morning to check for new job postings while I have my coffee. I have found that the beginning of the week is best for new jobs in the categories I use most.
Still a great day to start early and win big.
I think any time in the morning on Tuesday you are sure to find a job from a leading professional and someone that can afford to pay you for your skills.
By the middle of the week most of the jobs are either garbage or spammy.
Saturday is worth checking out but I would stick to Monday if I was starting all over again.
Create an account
It’s really easy to get started on Upwork. You will need to be a real person (no robots allowed).
You will need to have a great high quality image to show potential clients. Being groomed and bathing are suggested before taking such a photo.

Build your profile
What school did you attend? It will ask you to fill in information about past job experience and any special education you have.
Your profile is not complete until it says 100%. There is no skipping anything with this.
Finding the right category
The key is finding categories that make you money and getting online at peak times to maximize your profit potential.
What times of day are people online hiring? Well it depends on the country and the day of the week. Think about this when deciding when to post a proposal using valuable “connects”.
Tip #1 — Get personal
Don’t skip this first tip. Always try to use the persons name or possibly even location to stand out from the crowd. Remember you are competing for who makes the best impression in their proposal.
Tip #2 — Include attachments
Always take time to include some relevant screenshots or images of past work completed for clients. If you are starting out these maybe fictitious companies you have practiced with. Upwork allows you to send them a few images so don’t let this opportunity go without use.
Tip #3 — Offer Simple Advise
Sometimes telling the customer how you will fix their problem is the way to win them over. Don’t give away the whole thing but reassuring them they have chosen the right freelancer for the job might be nessecary.
Tip #4 — Include Links
Your cover page is a great place to include full URLs to your past projects or your online portfolio. Agencies do this all the time. There’s no reason why you can’t too.
