Welcome to fiverr. I wish you a lots of luck. And if you are persistent enough you will definitely do big here.
My first sale experience,
I got my first order 1 week after I registered on fiverr. I did not know much about its working but I was good at what I do. I completed the job in given time and delivered the correct files without any revisions. The buyer appreciated my job but he didn’t leave any reviews. Lack of reviews, lack of marketing knowledge lead to my second order be delayed for 3 months.
For 3 months I did not get any single order. But I kept logging in daily and I started to make some money. With help of Fiverr I left my engineering job (which I hated) and started enjoying life.

About Searching Buyers
No you cannot search buyers, you can search sellers if you yourself want to get anything done. There is an option of buyer’s requests, where the buyers post their needed job and want sellers to bid. You can try and bid for some work. It is a good option for new sellers.
I hope this helps
