Today morning, I received an email containing a direct hire offer. There were no job details in the client's message, so I went onto Upwork to see the job posting. But when I clicked on it within the offer, I got the message that "This job is Private". I really doubt the client intends for me to not see the job posting for which they offered to hire me. More likely, the job is set to Invite-Only and the client doesn't know that I've to be invited to the job posting as well.
I've messaged the client but I'd say this is a design flaw. Upwork should make it so that freelancers have ready access to jobs for which they are being hired.
We are aware of this issue and the team is planning to make some changes to make sure job details are accessible for the freelancer who receives the offer.
Sorry about the inconvenience.
