Invite only jobs and profile activity

Do invite only jobs affect activity stats? Specifically, if my completion rate is below 90% due to non activity (I think that must be the reason) will sucessful invite only jobs bring it up again?  Thanks.

Right, that makes sense now. For the time being, ignore that client preference if you know you can really nail the job. Apply anyway.

 

You'll need to complete (!) 4+ contracts from 3 or more different clients to get a JSS again. Be careful who you work with at this stage, as your JSS is really vulnerable until you have a bunch of completed contracts. Essentially, to hang on to a 90%+ JSS you can't afford one contract to go pearshaped until you have at least 10 great ones under your belt.

There is no such thing as a "completion rate" - you may mean JSS (Job Success Score?) (It's about successfully completing contracts, not just completing them.)

 

What do you mean "non activity?" - Jobs which are idle, but you have earned money from at some point, don't affect your JSS. Jobs which you have never earned any money from, do affect your JSS after 2-3 months if open, or when they close with no or poor private feedback.

 

Whether jobs originate from bidding or are invite only makes absolutely no difference to anything.


You actually don't have a JSS at all because you haven't worked on the site in several years, so I am not sure where you see "below 90."

 

Below 90 what?

Great advice. Thanks, Petra
