Is being away from Upwork for a year affects clients responses?

Hello, Upwork

I've been working on upwork for nearly 2 years now, but unfortunate the past year I was away because of my military service.

I've been applying to contracts for nearly 3 weeks now and I get no responses from any clients. I have 100% JS and my profile is complete.

I'd like to know if there's any problem in my account blocks clients from seeing my proposals. Or my year absence on the site affected my badly somehow?

Thank you,

Hi Eslam,


I'm sorry to hear you haven't been getting response to your proposals. I can assure you that all proposals are delivered to and can be viewed by clients.

Submitting proposals doesn't always guarantee that you will get hired or interviewed, but you shouldn't give up on sending proposals to potential clients. 
When you apply for jobs, make sure your proposal is well written and that you're absolutely qualified and certain of your ability to complete the job you're applying for. Check out this help article with tips on creating proposals that win jobs.

Thank you!
