Any only at Upwork Comedy moment with this. His posting for 30 minutes has been removed from the "interesting job" category with Upwork, only to have the "interesting job" tag now put onto his endless 10 minutes audiobook postings in 30 categories. Really UPwork? This is putting your best foot forward??
I haven't seen the post but if this guy is simply asking for different voices as narration for his ebook and willing to pay someone, that sounds like a legitimate job......... however his constant job listings for the same job is a violation of TOS I'm pretty sure.
I scambled through the listings for translation jobs today. Right at the very top a post was highlighted in blue as being an "Interesting Job".
Now, I am new to this feature or better, this feature is new to me. I always thought that a job should be interesting in positive ways BUT I was taught different!
The respective post has 20 to 50 Applicants for "a German translator" (not many!)
It was created SEVEN days ago and has up to today ZERO interviews held with the contestants!
NOW, how interesting is that? Looks fishy to me, for sure.
What is this supposed to tell me about the quality of the site AFTER raising their cut to 20% + VAT?
I agree Dietmar. The "Interesting Job" feature is really not working. As you say they are several days old, and in my case most are totally irrelevant as I do not fit the skills required.
I saw one post for 'academic writers', i.e. for a group writing term papers, flagged as an 'interesting job'.
After glancing through a few others marked as 'interesting', I honestly thought an Upwork staff member had just discovered sarcasm.
