Mine went up by 1% but I don't expect it to stay that way.

They updated it again today. Mine went back up. 

 

I keep forgetting I have it, so I can play on it in proposals. I almost want to hardcore bid without it for like a month and then hardcore bid with it for a month to see the difference. I'm getting more people contacting me even if it is to say I'm too expensive lol but I'm bidding more too so I can't tell if it helps.

Good preston,

I know you are talking about programming field but in the data entry or any other administrative type job posts there is a large amount of applicants on each job post .

After 5 to 6 min of the job post time you will think like that ** its better to not waste my 2 connects now *** Smiley Tongue

Mine went up by 2% and I got the speshull badge. Meh, who cares? I got a potentially decent job. That's what matters.

re: "I know you are talking about programming field..."

 

The job I posted this week was for a writer, posted in the writing category, with screenwriting selected as the job skill.

 

Posted payment was $75 fixed price contract, for a one-minute script, which should be about 2 pages if printed out.

 

Seemed like a fair price. But either I was paying too little or maybe there are not many contractors here interested in doing that kind of work.

 

I was PLEASED with the result because the two people who applied were qualified.

 

I was simply surprised, in light of all the reports about jobs with too many applicants.

Which is why nobody should aspire to be a data entry worker.

 

Take some time to learn some in-demand skills. Then earn more money.

 

If not one more data entry worker joined Upwork as a new contractor, that would be just fine. There are already plenty. There are way too many.

My JS plummeted from 100% to 91% when the new system was introduced, mostly because I had several idle hourly contracts with AWOL clients.

 

It's now back up to 100%
