Got this from Shabti:
“I was learning your course today and I was going through the upwork section step by step to make a profile and I submitted my application. One hour later, they sent me this email, saying: Unfortunately, at this time there are already many freelancers with a similar skillset to yours and we cannot accept your application etc etc. My question is: has it always been like this on upwork and if so, how can I get around this?”
The key here is to understand a) this is a good thing and b) what Upwork is ultimately after. There’s a good reason they rejected you. Once you understand what it is, not only can you easily re-work your profile to get it approved, but also know exactly what to do to build a client-getting Upwork profile.
I explain it all in this episode:

If you leave a rating and review of the podcast, I’d really appreciate it. It’s the main way more people find out about it which allows me to bring even more value to you as a listener. I believe that so much I’ll even give you Module 1 of my PHP 101 course for FREE if you leave me an honest review. Get the details on that here: https://johnmorrisshow.com/start-here.
