An issue with the idle job posts

That's interesting.

 

I didn't see the original interview and I don't see it posted among the many Upwork-related videos on YouTube or on Upwork's Web site.

 

Publicly-trade companies usually have a section on their Web sites providing investor-related information, which includes replays of management interviews.

 

I hope that is coming soon, so everyone can be up to speed on how Upwork's business is growing.

That's a great interview, but only hardcore investors are watching CNBC at 6:36 in the morning.

 

Upwork should see that it gets broader distribution. Every client and every freelancer should watch it.

Thank you Will for detailed responce. 

 

I think customization of my proposal won't make any difference here as jobs are open for many months in row and apparently clients (even if rethinked) just don't do anything. But the case with bombarding  guys worth concideration. Here I agree with you.

 No, you have either very  old, or downright wrong information.

They only affect you if you have loads or no money was (ever) paid under them. This is a fact.

Freelancer's JSS is not  the main subject here. The main subject is too much open job posts with no actions on them on which freelancers spend thei connects. Please read my message carefully. 

 

Thank you!

 Probably ancient.... IT IS NOT THE CASE NOW, IF IT EVER WAS.

There are masses of freelancers with contracts that have been idle for literally years and who have 100% JSS.

I have a few that have been idle for months, I have a 100% JSS.

 Yeah well, it is not correct anyway. Such contracts didn't cause your JSS to go down.

Take a look at your private feedback percentage instead.
