To learn besides HTML, CSS, JS for freelancing on upwork?

Good day to all!

I'm a beginner pretender and expect in six months to look for work Junior Frontend,
into the office early to go can't

advise how to most effectively invest time in 6-7 months, what to study and what to do.
Know HTML, CSS, JS framework, actively study (validation of forms, to-do list, TIC-TAC-toe, calculator you can write to, etc. simple),

I'd like ideally to take simple orders upwork (mostly for the experience, although money is certainly not superfluous). English normally.
What do I need to learn to do? what sort of problem in JS often?

plans to explore React Node.js. But the best learning course in "combat roles"
thanks in advance!!!

Good time of day.
Responding to a question.
The number of orders at the moment, at apwork customers popular PHP/Wordpress/Laravel, WP apart from the competition.
In the direction of the JS have a lot of orders for React/Angular/Node.JS smaller in Vue.
If you talk about what you need, starting from the bottom from WP now can't go anywhere, just skills HTML/CSS for opforce anyway is no surprise.
On JS/React/Node.js orders above the level, with no experience and a good portfolio to take them harder than the same WP.
Well, common.
About perfect English - not true. Know it was needed, but the intermediate level altogether.
About small bets and be the first too, not quite:
• Firstly it is not a well-known cesspool. Yes, customers are different, but on the basis of mass want to pay a specialist, do not hold the mentality the customer from USA with our, it does not fit, that the specialist sets 5-8$ an hour. On average, everyone starts in the range of 12-15$, want can and 5$ to start, but it is better to get used to appreciate his work. And you will appreciate in return. Example from install of WP and theme without customization and other things went for 35$/hour, when asked why, the customer said, because I see that you make per hour, a person will be for$ 7 to put it to me a week, the customer may not be right, but this train of thought many. Again there are other cases, but then often in Job feed to see - "I give upwork last chance to do my job, the previous freelancer failed".

• Second, there must be an answer within a specific time, usually the window is about 10 minutes. Your cover letter is built from the customer relevant to your skills, portfolio, recent execution of the works, but not depends on you answer the first or the tenth.

In any case, do not, under any circumstances, work for review and for a very small bet, crooks and bastards, a large number. In the case of work for$ 5 two months in the ground. It all started with small changes, and promises to leave a good review, and then in the process you learn what the JSS, what is the hidden feedback. And so people were working.
Try to avoid customers from Pakistan, India. Russian try also to avoid, in General, look for orders in countries from Germany and the West.

In any case, just after about 6-8 months of training, you're going to answer this question with another. Good luck to you, Marina!
thank you for such a detailed and helpful reply!!!!!!! - rick.Dietric commented on June 5th 19 at 21:52

advise how more effectively to invest the time 6-7 months

To go abroad and improve English level to the level of "fluently"
thank you. in the past English fluently now pozabyla without practice, but I have a month for a couple of hours a day. - rick.Dietric commented on June 5th 19 at 21:54
I agree. Better yet, go to London to shoot an expensive hotel in the city center to be in the thick of the English language. To live there for 6-7 months. And you can tackle learning Wordpress. - marilyne_Roh commented on June 5th 19 at 21:57

no need to learn something, improve your knowledge in these areas
June 5th 19 at 21:55
No need to ask to learn. Just take the job and do it. You will immediately experience the specific issues that you have and decide to look for ready answers, etc. After performing each work task, all these points that you decide, searched, asked and analyzed is converted into a priceless experience.
Take fail order, receive negative feedback in a profile, create a bunch of topics with "how to raise JSS", "how to take an order, if a profile up?", "What to do if banned from opforce?" - rick.Dietric commented on June 5th 19 at 21:58
here can russkis exchanges to try... for the experience of something - marilyne_Roh commented on June 5th 19 at 22:01
don't be afraid to work! Start with simple orders, produmyvayte their skills and further increase the speed and complexity. If you get stuck, don't panic: Google, ask.

Still it would be great if you can find a mentor that will give you small sections of the work of their projects and supporting.

If you are really afraid of without experience to take a commercial order, help some opensores project. - rick.Dietric commented on June 5th 19 at 22:04

Upwork only with good English, I would say perfect(as the poor or middle English You will be very hard)! And problems encountered from the most primitive to 5$ to the most complex projects. And of course in the beginning, set a minimum price for the job/an hour-long, and strive to be the first! Mostly small work, quickly take the Indians.
Google the transliteration work more than a year opforce, RTG 35, normal flight, no negative feedback, the sphere back. What am I doing wrong with my English? - rick.Dietric commented on June 5th 19 at 22:00
Yes , about the "very hard" people got excited ) although the language certainly limits the selection, it is a fact - marilyne_Roh commented on June 5th 19 at 22:03
Sorry, the question out of curiosity: And Skype do not have to speak with the customer? - rick.Dietric commented on June 5th 19 at 22:06
No. No Skype, no vnutripolostnyh dialers. Only text chat apwork/Skype. I'm sitting in a conference of the slack for apwork, a lot of people working there, living as I do, without voice chat and with online translators.
To know English well is a plus, very big and fat plus, but not required. In this case, or deceives or does not understand what is said.

PS. To VCAT on apwork, I'm about half a year and pondered, too, shaking over "I do not know English, no one will hire". And then spat and started to work. (customers I have: Israel, Japan, Canada, States, States, Belarus, China, the us).

PS.S. About 2/3 of the employers that the profile is listed as "Frome YUSA" are named Raja, Mohammed or Abdul. - Gust.Rath commented on June 5th 19 at 22:09
and what about video chat for verification? Say now for all new accounts is - Roxanne_Ortiz commented on June 5th 19 at 22:12
, view videos in the Internet, there is a primitive question about your name and it is possible to specify one of the skills. On the support sit Hindus. I was more afraid to pass it, turned out to be nonsense and 1 1 as videos on the Internet.
For older accounts this was also introduced. Blocked the profile with the requirement to undergo a mandatory verification video. 1 minute for a chat and 20 seconds on the dialogue orally:
- you want to verify profile
- you have a camera and microphone?
- Yes
- Are you ready to go now?
- Yes
*start the video camera is only visible to my*
- Hello, state your name and surname
- Hello, may him from John DOE
- What is HTML?
Hyper text markup language.
Thank you.
* your profile is verified *
