The email says, "we have changed your profile to "private" until you are ready to start taking on new jobs. Your profile will not be seen by clients unless you submit proposals for their jobs." Well WTH, if it's private, how is anyone going to find me and offer me a project so I can make a proposal and earn with Upwork? This sounds like a catch-22.


Hi Erik,


Your profile visibility has been reset back to public. When your profile is set to private, your profile is not visible in search results, but the clients can still view your profile when you submit a proposal for their job post. For more information, please check out this help article
