Hello Experts,

I have a client outside to Upwork and we wanted to continue our business through Upwork. He posted a Job at Upwork and I applied for the job. Somehow he is unable to see my bid(Proposal). Please let me know in what cases, client will not be able to see freelancer's job application. e.g. If a freelancer apply for a job beyond his mentioned expertise in his Upwork profile?

I am waiting to hear from You soon.

Best regards,
Vivek Thakur

Give it some time. I'd tell him an hour even though it's probably more like 30 mins or something.

Hi Vivek

 

A lot of times, Upwork hides some freelancers bids on certain openings. They say that they have some algorithm which detects whether a freelancer is not suitable for the position, and then the bid is completely hidden. I raised a ticket once for this and below I am quoting the reply from Upwork.

 

**Edited for Community Guidelines**

 

So, the ideal solution in your case would be to ask your client to send you an interview invitation or offer directly.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers,

Vikas

No, they removed that. They no longer hide proposals.

Vikas and Vivek,

 

All proposals are delivered to the client. As Jennifer pointed out it may take a bit of time for the proposal list to update and for recent proposals to show. Also, the client may need to click "Load More" to see more proposals.
