How did I get my first job? Explained

Hi. I am a lawyer who began to introduce me to the world of photography as a hobby. I progressed little by little, until I managed to take so many photography and editing courses that I feel that no one could match me. I came to FIVERR to watch videos on YouTube and I said, “You can”. That’s how I registered, created several gigs, did the skill test and even did several courses. However, not a single job arrived. Today I had an idea. I made a publication in the WhatsApp States section advertising my gigs and in less than an hour, I got my first job. Basically, I offer photoshop work (retouching, high-end, skin cleaning, etc …) and my first job was done to a model who lives in my city. Well, this is just a presentation so you can see that yes, you can!

Hi Vicki Very kind and pleasant your words. I’ve also taken a look at your work and I think it’s great. Too bad I don’t need it, because if it were, I would hire it. I have seen your high score in the test score, so I have no doubt that you are an excellent proofreader. On the other hand, although I have a lot of experience in photography and editing with photoshop, I just had only one job. I hope to grow within this page. Greetings from Ushuaia, Argentina.
P.S. Do not correct this text !!! I use the google translator because I speak in Spanish.

Please allow me to advise you to carefully read Fiverr’s TOS to avoid getting into trouble - it’s the most important advice I can give you. Here’s the link to it https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service?source=footer

Congratulations! Very nice to know about it! :smiley:

Hahahaha Don’t worry, no one will. It’s OK for you to use it, since English is the default language on the forum making it possible for everyone to understand and participate. :wink:

Hi @maitasun , first things first. I must tell you that my country, for obvious reasons, is receiving many Venezuelan visitors and, in fact, I already have several friends from your country. Surely, in not much time, I will go to visit the Bolivarian land. Thank you for your greetings, and welcome, but … did I do something wrong to send me the recommendations ?. Because if so, I failed to warn you … Well, I send you a big hello!

Thanks for your kind and encouraging words!

You’re most welcome! But there’s nothing to thank me for! :wink:

Oh, no, hahahha. You don’t have anything to apologize for. Google translate is just fine to help you communicate with all forum users! :wink:
