Upwork rejection….no.2!

So I submitted an application to Upwork about 12 months ago, at a time when I rushed through my application and thought it would be given that I would be accepted.

Obviously I was wrong….

As I am wanting to make cash from my writing, I relooked at my application again. I updated it with my experiences, job history and qualifications. I put a ton of effort into the application and really thought I would be accepted this time….but again I got rejected.

Should I feel gutted about this decision?

How else do people break into writing work? Are there sites or forums I can connect with to look for work? Although I have been writing forever, I feel like I would be a beginner in terms of experience….

Does anybody have any advice for me? Are you a writer in the same boat? What did you do?

  1. hello, I hope you are alright. I too I have been facing the same problem. The greater problem in these writing platforms is that you still have to bid and in some also pay for the bidding process. If you could learn on the skills of how to pitch direct clients, that could also work for you as the pays are better when compared to writing on the writing platforms like Upwork, freelancer and Fiverr. I hope I was of help somehow.
    Thank you.

  2. It is awful receiving a form rejection; I know from querying it makes one feel like no one cares for your work! I too have not made it in the door yet but people do make it and I will be thinking of you and hoping you open the door soon!
