On the freelancers profile, do they have open, fixed-rate contracts? Or just no job history at all?
I sometimes receive odd recommendations, as well. I tend to just overlook those and view applicant profiles only.
Nope, there are no specific tags for this candidate. I just got an email saying they were the best candidate and they are also the only candidate the shows when searching recommended candidates. They do NOT have the blue recommended tag though.
I did receive an email that said they were the best candidate. They are also the only candidate in my recommended list when I search by recommended. I am new to this so I was hoping that maybe I was just missing something and someone could point it out. I guess this may just be a bug or something?
i mean to say did you get an emails for each proposal posted or just the best candidates? it is really sad to see when freelancers are filtered without any geniune reason
But you did receive the proposals from applicants who may not necessarily have been "Recommended", correct?
When I'm hiring, I tend to completely disregard the auto emails that I receive about this freelancer or that freelancer. I only pay attention to the profiles of people who have submitted actual proposals.
I do receive an email alert when someone submits a proposal, and I find that information valuable.
