    On freelancing sites,getting our first project is little bit difficult because initially our rating is low and feedback is null.
    What is the most important aspect to get the first project from freelancing sites?
    And if once we get our first project and complete it on time.is it sufficient to get next project?

    Getting first project not only with freelancer but any available website for freelancer would be a tough job. It is not that easy to get a job especially when you are new to a community like a freelancing website.

    You need some good feedback, reviews and most important experienced working on projects. Initially, you can start off small project in cheap rates and once you have become estabalish you can increase the prices.

    First and foremost, you need to make sure that you know what you're doing. You should also make sure that the skills required for the freelancing job is something you already know. If you are still new with that skill, I would suggest that you should practice yourself first a bit until you are getting familiar with it. For me, the most important aspect of a freelancing job is commitment to do whatever it takes to finish the job on time. It would be sufficient for you to get the next project, rather than someone else takes it. Never miss an opportunity (unless you are really tired).

    It's basically what Steve Taylor said: your profule should be attractive and complete; you have to mention your related skills; verify your contact information; add your experience, etc.

    Basicallty, your portfolio should be appealing, for employers to contact you for you to do a job for them.

    To get projects from freelancing sites,your profile should be attractive.
    You have to complete your profile by adding about yourself,about your skills.And you should upload your avatar not any celebs pictures or any cartoon character or any others pictures as it will make your profile look unattractive and leave a bad impression on the people.After you have experience you can add it to on your profile so it will help you in getting more and more projects.

    For new freelancers, the most important aspect to get a job is to have an impressive profile which shows all your skills and good traits. It is also important that you give your best to impress your prospect client. But most of all you have to be honest and make sure you are really capable in doing the job that you are applying for.

    No one cay say if you done one project successfully, your hiring rate high.
    It's depend on your skills and experience and most important, How's you writing your proposal and what you mention in your profile.
    Even if your first client give you five rating and recommendation for you. it's help you in your next project.

    For fresher freelancer account representation play important role in only getting the chance to get a project. I mention only chance after getting a chance you have to prove your skill in the term of sample work. If you pass in doing sample work then you can get project.

    Yes, more and more people are coming to join freelancing websites to work as a freelancer. the competition is getting tough for the people. It is not because old people have experience but i have noticed most clients are ready to compromise the work for money.This is how newbie gets the jobs and the experienced people has no clue why it was given to a complete a fresher guy.
