Hi Ramon,

 

Having a complete and clear profile along with submitting tailored proposals for jobs you have the skillset, time, and experience to complete in line with the client's requirements will help position your proposal higher on the list.

 

Please note that clients have the option to sort the view depending on how they would like to view the proposals they received. They can also see the best match for their job that's run by an algorithm that is solely focused on sorting the proposal order, all of which are displayed and available on the client's end. However, we won't be able to discuss the algorithm's specifics, we can share it takes into account the content of the proposal, information available on the freelancer's profile and service they provide, as well as the client's hiring preferences. Hope this helps.

 

Thank you.

I was hoping Upwork might bin that idea.

ME TOO.  I think it's the worst idea they have ever had. Yet another way to bleed money from freelancers. So now the more we PAY to apply for a job the better chance we have. Not just skills based then... 

 

Dear Upwork: Sometimes I think you have never had a conversation with a freelancer. 

I am available if you want some serious advice.
