    Is it worth what? It's a great platform. Put more effort into your question so people can help you.

    Nopes. It is not. Nothing is worth these days. Upwork, home work.... Etc..

    On a serious note, if you are a noob there; quit trying.

    For freelancers? Yeah I'm always hiring coders on there for my teams. They make darn good money. Even our VAs... $5.50/hr @ 60-80 hours a week. One told me she just bought a house and sent me a big thank-you message - it's darn good money in developing countries.

    You're welcome. Just be reliable and listen to the client's instructions carefully. I'm sure you could be in a nice place 6-12 months from now.

    If you are on Upwork you will need some special skills or you will need to create good cover letters to stand out. There are many thousands or more people trying to compete with you for virtual assistant and data entry jobs.

    Yep, if you can get through, to be a part of their freelancing community. And hopefully, push your limits to offer great quality work.
