So apparently since I live in West Texas, upwork has decided that jobs in Dallas, Houston and Austin are are great fit for me even though these are very far from me. At this point jobs in Phoenix and Cali are more relevant. Anyway, these are cluttering my job feed and making it very difficult to navigate the avaliable jobs to me. Is there a way to opt out of these?
Solved! Go to Solution.
While currently there isn't an option to filter out Local Jobs, our product team is working on providing more features that would allow freelancers to filter jobs in their Job Feeds better.
I'll share your feedback and experience with them.
Same here, I live south of Seattle, WA and all of the San Francisco, CA jobs show up first in my feed every day as "local". I have scroll past these every time I log on.
CA is 2 states away from WA. It's so annoying.
It drives me absolutely nuts that local jobs keep getting recommended to me. I live in Rochester, NY, more than 5 hours away from NYC, but almost every job in my feed is a local job in NYC. I wouldn't have come to Upwork if I wanted a local job anyway.
Our engineers are currently investigating why jobs that are pretty far from your locations are shown as local. This doesn’t seem to work as expected and we’ll make sure it’s fixed as soon as possible.
Our team will come back here once this has been sorted out. Thank you for your patience.
