Upwork Freelancing: It's Not For Everyone

I frequent Upwork groups on Facebook, and while browsing the other day, I saw Florence's Facebook post. He said: I think this Upwork platform is for those that have started working there already. Not for beginners! How can a newbie get a job? Even after shuffling the requirements to entry-level, those hirers would still be asking for 90% JSS with past works, and it's so annoying... I don't think the platform is well-organized, and it's also full of scammers. Please, I will be glad to know if you have any other Freelancing platforms that are better. Niche: Accounting, Finance, Data entry. The post piqued my interest, so I asked permission from Florence if could get a screenshot of his FB post and write an article about it. Why? Because it's loaded. In this post, I will answer some of the points he raised in the hope of sharing my learning and experience with others who might also be frustrated with not finding clients on Upwork or any other platforms.
