After reading some threads in this group, there seems to be a growing consensus that Upwork is not as good as it used to be at getting jobs. Now, taking into account that we have a global economic downturn. Is Upwork making it harder for Designers and Creatives to find work?
If you think Upwork is worse, what would you suggest could be improved?
I personally have not seen it harder to get jobs - actually the opposite. I think it can be really hard for newer freelancers to get jobs as there are many who already have a lot of feedback and clients invite them directly. I'd Upwork to remove jobs that were already filed as I see that they stay on the platform and people keep bidding on them. Also, it seems like the upgrading connects for jobs is not working well for freelancers, I've seen a lot of complaints about that. I also believe that people should not be allowed to outbid with connects, it seems a bit unfair.
