As some of you may have noticed already, we added two items to the “Activity on this Job” section of a Job Post: Invites Sent and Unanswered Invites (see screenshot below).

Invites Sent refers to the number of invites the client has sent for this job post.

Unanswered Invites refers to the number of freelancers who have neither accepted nor rejected the invitation sent to them for this job.

 

This information gives you more visibility into the activity on a job post and a client’s hiring process before sending your proposal.

Sorry! But invites are usually late when they get to you. By the time, the job is old and others who had applied have been selected.

 You cannot generalize only from your own experience. I have a completely different experience with invites.

Speaking as a client: if you see that I have sent multiple invites, don't be discouraged from applying for my job, whether I sent you an invite or not. It probably means that I would like to hire one or multiple freelancers as soon as possible. If the job is still active, you have a good chance at getting hired if you are qualified.

 

Once I have the people I need for the project, I'll remove the job posting or make it private.

 

Of course, I can't speak for other clients.

 

But my strong recommendation to clients is to conscientiously close the job posting or make it private once you have hired the freelancers you need. I make the posting private in case I need to hire more people. That way job seekers don't see it. When the work is done, I take the post down completely.

Hi Derya,

 

Please click on the title of one of the jobs you posted > click the Invite Freelancers tab > Invited Freelancer tab and you'll see a list of freelancers you've invited to bid on your job.

You should also mention whether the client has hired freelancer for the said job or not.
