This is basically me among my loser competitors.

I send a proposal and was hired 15 minutes later.

I don't know, what to do with my connects.

I did not follow the changes with connects on Upwork and one day I ended up having 120 of them.

Once, I applied to a job, and it took 2 connects.

Recently, I got 10 free conntects, and now I have 128 of them.

 

A bit offtopic, sorry. Just could not find the right place to post my fascinating story.

I got my first couple of projects on Elance maybe half a year before Upwork came about. So, basically, Upwork came to me and I've been Top Rated & bombarded by invitations ever since.

Still, I see this platform offering a very quick rise to the top of the food chain for people who know their clientele, have a carefully-chosen niche, and are good at making genuine contact online in general.

Searching for the jobs... Not really in 5 years.

The best jobs seem to be searching for the best freelancers. That's where you want to be. Fighting with every other freelancer for small gigs would be not only frustrating but also not very good business. It's about positioning yourself correctly.

I'd like them to Expert Vet my field, but I don't trust anyone freelancer on Upwork to be more of an expert than me...and none of my client would be paying for the membership to see EV, so it's pointless. 

 

I'm TR+ but it only means I had a big contract. Whoopee...

OP, 

Passion dies, unfortunately, with familiarity. Upwork needs to feed its clients (not its freelancers) with those little blue pills - you know the ones I mean?
