Apply Now button is greyed out - why can't I apply for a job?

Hey guys I don't get it, everything is filled out and up to date... my account should be good to go but I can't apply for work.


I have 120 connects.

i already completed a job a couple months ago and got great feedback.


I can access all of my features it seems except applying for work.

What gives?

Hey! I'm facing the same issue.


I successfully completed a job a couple of days ago and I still have 48 connects and yet I'm unable to apply for any more jobs becuase the 'Apply Now' button is disabled (grey).


Could anyone please assist me with this?


Thank you!

I have not yet received any email to respond to and I have been trying to respond to the ticket you have issued as well, but I am not sure how to. Could you ask your team to resend the email so that I can respond to it at my earliest?
