Some people pay for connects. If nobody else they deserve to know how and why their Proposals wind up in an archived folder.

 

Let's answer that right here, shall we?


I couldn't agree more with Petra! Especially after spending $70 over the past few days in purchasing additional connects. Now I know that was a total waste of money, and obviously a waste of time!

[ IMPORTANT: I have checked the comunity regulations regarding attaching support files, and I believe that the file I am attaching here does not violate those regulations by any means. Therefore, I do not expect it to be removed by an Upwork agent without a prior notice and clear explanation of the reason(s) they find applicable to this case. Thank you for understanding. ]

I am facing the same problem, I already buy 120 connects and submit 20+ proposals. I still not get any response. Upwork can't prove I was unfit for that job and confidently can tell I can do that project perfectly than others. So why Upwork deprive us of that project. 

Now I stopped submitting my proposal and trying to understand the Upwork algorithm.

Hi K. M. Robiul,

 

Submitting proposals doesn't always guarantee that you will get hired or get a chance to be interviewed, but you shouldn't give up on sending proposals to potential clients. You may check our Resource Corner and find some excellent topics there:

 

Submitting a Winning Proposal on Upwork

Make Your Freelancer Profile More Visible & Appealing

Enhance Your Freelancer Profile for Greater Success

 

When you apply for jobs, make sure your proposal is well written and that you're absolutely qualified and certain of your ability to complete the job you're applying for.
 
Thanks!

I'm a new freelancer user of Upwork.

What is the Archived proposal? please let me know ASAP.

Hi Raju Gurung,

 

When your proposal is declined by the client, withdrawn by you or the job is closed, it'll be moved to Find Work> Proposals> Archived. 

Clients also have an option to archive proposals on their end.

Unbelievable. Just when I thought Upwork couldn't be any more disappointing.

Now this...is low. And so btw....the competency of these so-called 'talent specialists' or whatever they are called...has been brought into question MANY times. You know...why doesn't Upwork do itself a favor and just get rid of them? I seriously doubt they are needed (qualified).

Didn't Upwork once tell users - both buyers and freelancers - that TRANSPARENCY mattered?

 

This certainly proves otherwise.

Are you a upwork Pro Customer by any chance. They say they will screen applicants for upwork pro customers . If you have not signed for such services, they are unauthorized and unjustified in messing with the proposals. Otherwise, the talent specialists may be doing shoddy work but have been authorized by you to do the screening.

 I'm sure they would know if they had paid $ 500 plus 10% of the job value ...
