Access denied for every post I try to view

Hello Friends,

 

I have been using Upwork since many years but today when I tried to loginto my account and tried to view some newly posted projects I am continuously getting this error.

Access denied

This job is private and can only be viewed by admitted freelancers.

 

I want to know is there any change in terms and conditions from upwork or there is some issue with my profile only?

 

Please get back to me with the solution.

 

Regards,

Ms. Silky Shah

Hi Silky,

 

I checked your account and can see that you have recently submitted it for the team's review. Please allow up to 48 hours for the review to be complete. Once you are all set, you should be able to start bidding for jobs in the Upwork marketplace.

Thanks for your message Aleksandar

 

Will i get email notification that my profile is active again?

 

I got this email and tried to reactivate my profile

 

Hi Silky,
We noticed you have not been working through Upwork lately.
To improve clients' search results, and show them more freelancers who are available, we have changed your profile to "private" until you are ready to start taking on new jobs.
The next time you log into Upwork, your profile will again become public.

 

Please help me with reactivating my profile.

Hi Zeno,

 

I checked and it looks like only freelancers located in the U.S. may apply to the job post you're referring to. You should be able to view and apply to the job posts showing in Find Work.

I have the same issue as well.

Hi Sierra,

 

Upon checking, you need to update your profile overview and title, to clearly describe any specific skill and experience you might have. Once you finish, please resubmit your profile for review.

 

Thank you!

Hi Bojan,

 

I have the same issue. Some projects display the following when clicked: 

Access denied

This job is private and can only be viewed by admitted freelancers.

Please go to our home page.

 

However, my profile is already 100% complete as should be as stated in your reply. How can I fix this?

 

Sincerely,

Cheska Lomibao

Hi Cheska,

 

I would like to clarify that when a job is posted as private, you will not be able to access it unless you're invited by the client. 
Could you clarify if you're seeing this message on all of the jobs on your feed, or only on few of them? Thank you.

Hi, I'm also having a similiar issue. I keep seeing jobs in my Feed but when I lick on them to apply I get this message. 

 

Access Denied, this job is private and can only be viewed by admitted freelancers.

 

Please help.

Hi Imran,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked your account and could not replicate the issue. In fact, this isn't an issue or an error at all. Clients may post job listings to which only invited freelancers can submit a proposal.

 

I suggest you refresh your job feed or refine your search in order to look for jobs that best fit your skillset and experience. Kindly check this help article for more details.

I have the same issue as well.

Hi Nikhil,

 

I reached out directly to the team handling your case and they've confirmed that your profile has been accepted. It looks like the image you've shared is for a job that's been posted by a client as private, you will not be able to access it unless you're invited by the client. 

 

With that said. you should be able to view and apply to the job posts shown on your Find Work page. Let us know if you're experiencing the same error on every job post and we'll look further into that for you.

It did was some time ago that I last logged in, so now that I have - will my profile automatically go back to being active? Does it take some time to refresh?

 

Would love to go back into looking on offers. Thanks.

I have the same problem... can't view the details of the post..

"This job is private and can only be viewed by admitted freelancers".

Hi Ross,

 

Is this happening on all job posts or just on this one? Could you please send me a private message with the link to the job post you're referring to so I can check?

Please keep in mind that if a client changed the visibility of their job post and you've saved it beforehand, you may still be able to see it but you will not be able to apply. Thank you.
