Caetano, This is such a helpful guide to UpWork. I opened an account back in March, I think. After submitting 2 proposals I decided to focus on grant writing and other projects outside of the platform.

Last week, I went back to UpWork and submitted 8 new proposals. I thought I did a pretty good job with my cover letter, but honestly, I don't find the platform intuitive.

That's where this article comes in handy. I've bookmarked it so I can refer to it when I'm improving my profile. I had no idea the portfolio section is so important. Time to work on that :).

I also appreciate your sneak peak at your UpWork profile. It's helpful to see how successful writers organizer their profile pages.

Thank you for this thorough guide. I'll be visiting it again soon.
