Wait ... what? There's an "interesting job" section? Does it involve a secret decoder ring ... is that like the top rated forum I never knew existed? Quick comment - "interesting" would be totally subjective ... just sayin'.
Now ... where did I put those psychedelic glasses I wore to Woodstock?
Please note that "unverified payment" means nothing other than the client has not set up a payment method yet. There is nothing wrong with that. It only goes sideways if you start work before payment verification is set up.
Dear Tam L
Seeing that you are so engrossed with the "interesting job" feature, which could be a good thing, how about setting criteria already mentioned (money spent, average amount/job)? Added to that, date, client response time and feedback (JSS?) could be some other criteria to evaluate whether a job is really "interesting".
Certainly, a job that is situated at 1 or 2 cent/word cannot be interesting at all (when it comes to my area of translation).
On the other hand, clients that are willing to spend a fair amount, which will upkeep my feeding and living habits, are surely to be classified as interesting.
Just my 5 pennies worth
Kudos on the insight that job postings are their own "entity," with their own potential screening parameters, distinguishable from (if perhaps overlapping with) those for clients.
The debate over revenue volume via job volume vs. profitable revenue via job and contractor quality has raged for a while in the forum. Upwork seems to have come down firmly on the latter position. That suggests a core business-strategy case for any reasonable development cost focused on improving marketplace quality, let alone the mandate to make client and contractor matchups more effective and efficient.
Thanks and best,
