Hi all,

Is there any site, or guideline where I can find instructions on how to improve my Proz profile? I can't find anything related to this.

Thank you for your help.

You've looked here on Dec 30, 2015

I'm surprised as there seems to me to be an awful lot about that subject on here.

- The Getting Established forum contains lots of advice, with newcomers (to the profession and/or to the site) often asking for exactly that.
- The Site Guidance Centre (under the About tab) is there for newcomers. There's a vast amount of information of all sorts there, so follow every path and every link until you're sure you've soaked it all up.
- A free webinar, held regularly, gives advice on how to meet clients here, concentrating largely on your profile. You can find it through the Site Guidance Centre.

Hope that helps.

Some resources to help you complete your profile Dec 30, 2015

Hello Inés,

As Sheila and Achmad have pointed out, there are a variety of resources available on the site to help you improve your profile and get the most out of Many of these can be found through the site guidance center, available under the "About" tab. I will post some of those here directly:

I would also like to make specific mention of the Meeting clients at webinar, which is held on a regular basis by site staff. It's free to attend, and will give you the information you need to improve your profile and increase your visibility on the site. The full list of upcoming sessions (now including one in Spanish!) can be found here:

I hope this helps, and I look forward to seeing you at one of the upcoming webinars!

Best regards,
