I am aware that a lot of the Invites from Talent Specialists are not a good match, but sometimes I get really good matches and it looks to me like the Talent Specialist has worked to match me with a good prospect. I would like to send a thank you when that happens. How can I do it? (I think feedback to them is the only way they will ever get consistently good, and I dont' mind a few strikeouts, as long as I get some good hits.)
I'm glad to hear you had a great experience! Was this someone you worked with recently? We will definitely reach out to them and share your compliments.
Feel free to DM me with more information.
If I was feeling tongue-in-cheeky, I would write something about blind squirrels and nuts.
I think it would be helpful for everyone to allow communication between freelancers and talent specialists. It feels very ungenuine to get a helpful invite from a human being (at least it's implied they're not bots) and not be able to send a thank you. That's not how business works. If someone reaches out with a helpful contact, you always thank them. Likewise, if someone reaches out with a poor fit, it would be helpful to be able to ask why they thought it was a good match so I can update my profile accordingly. It just feels like Upwork is trying to automate the interpersonal aspects of business out of the process and very unfair on the good talent specialists who can't even know how helpful they are
