10 connects are less, but something is better than nothing.

Agreed with you Mr. Jose,
Basically freelancer are the backbone of Upwork. Upwork management need to introduce and invent a way to stop spam applications rather than charging or eliminating free connects, as well as they need to lift conditions of number of connects to apply for a job.
As much opportunities available to freelancers as much they earn and pay fee to upwork.
At the end thanks Upwork to providing free connects. But honestly these are very little.

I agree with Jose, 10 connects are not enough for good jobs. I am a new freelancer in upwork and I haven't yet gotten any jobs, although I have bought connects 3 times. When you convert dollars to Brazilian Reais, connects can get very expansive, since one USD today is 5,48 BRL. In addition to that we must pay pay pal fees. It is really hard for new tallented Brazilian folk who want to join upwork.

Luiza, no business is built without any investment. Even freelance business.

Got no money, need to spend time. Can take months before you get a penny. Bad idea.

Or go spend a little to increase your chances to get real business going much sooner.

Very encouraging for me to have the information Upwork is giving us connects to apply for jobs. It could be more helpful if Upwork helps us by increasing the connections from 10.
