I stumble upon a video series called Make Money with Python. Where the instructor goes to UpWork find a scraping job and executes it live. So I wanted to give it a shot.
To my surprise my non-existent PayPal account was linked there and I saw my first gig. $8.00 on Jul 31, 2013 to PayPal lol. Then the memories rushed I saw my old proposals without a single response.
Anyways I found a job, https://www.upwork.com/jobs/~01c7c342dda9554550 handle it in short amount of time, took a screenshot and sent "Your files are ready". Guess what, no responses again. Now I checked he hired someone else. I need to pay to see the bids, pay to apply for more. Feels like a huge gimmick. Anyone else has experience on the platform. I'm curious did I wasted a few hours after 8 years. Do I ever learn from my mistakes :)
