Hi Om ji and Stanislav,

 

As mentioned by other users, the rate of new jobs posted on Upwork does vary depending on the season, usually decreasing at specific times. Peak summer months are one of those periods, due to them being the main holiday season.

Yes, i have definitely noticed. For the past 3 years, i spent upwards of $40.00/day on Upwork applying to job postings, but i haven't even spent nearly as much in one week since about April of this year. Specifically, postings for ppc, facebook advertising, and marketing gigs have decreased drastically and i cant figure out why. i also have a client account where i do hiring and i think they may have changed the format for people posting gigs. From what i noticed on my client account, the category for marketing is very limited and now almost non-existent. Looks like they are removing the option to post any marketing related gigs. It seems that Upwork may be moving away from having marketing gigs on the platform altogether. It's still boggling because if people aren't no longer posting on here, i wonder exactly where they are going...

 You spend $ 40 EVERY DAY applying for jobs????? Conveniently your profile is hidden (I wonder why??) but anyone who spends over $ 14,000 a year on Connects is doing something terribly wrong OR is earning huge amounts of money...
