JSS scores dropping continously

My JSS scores are continuously dropping without me doing anything with the profile. It's been already difficult finding a work with 89% JSS and today it dropped to 81%. So it's now near to impossible finding any good work. Any suggestions, how you guys are dealing with the situation?

It probably means that good private feedback has dropped out of the calculation window.

To fix it, you will need to complete jobs and gain good private feedback.

It is dropping BECAUSE you are not doing anything.

Every month, great outcomes fall out of your calculation window(s) and those are not replaced by other great outcomes, so any "not so great" outcomes become a more and more significant percentage of your overall score.

 

You really need to grab a few jobs, complete them well, and yourJSS will go up quickly again, because you don't have that many contracts in your 2 year window.

Thats sure I can understand that, but major problem is to get a good paying job, 
you need high scores, and without high scores you are not even able to grab
a job.

My scores dropped from 97 directly to 85. I did 2, 5* jobs back to back in
june and got it to 89% only and from there it has been continuously just
dropping making it extremely hard to even get a job.

It has been dropping continuously because you haven't been doing more jobs.

You need to be a little more proactive and apply, apply and apply some more, because otherwise it will just keep dropping. It's not THAT bad now, but if it drops into the 70s things will get worse, not better.

Hmm, have been already applying and not even hearing back and having hard time to even get a job on 20$/hr. and if you checked, I have been doing jobs on 30$/hr initially these days.

If there are more available freelancers than there are jobs, you could do everything perfectly when applying and still not be hired. That is just the state of the market.
