Job Success Score and Morale

In a nutshell:

 

  • My job feed/searches is/are littered with 90% unsuitable jobs and cheapskate clients
  • Clients don't find/look at my fabulous Top Rated profile
  • No suitable invites, in fact, almost no invites at all
  • I have to educate clients and ask them for good feedback whenever a contract closes (really awkward!!!)
  • I have to invoice my clients, particularly Europeans, because invoices provided by Upwork don't meet my country's tax filing requirements

So, what exactly is Upwork doing for me?

 

As it stands, nothing. Which means, my profile is dead weight. No fees to be earned.

Seems like a real win-win situation!

I just posted using my Client account in the Client section about what I just experienced trying to find a blog article writer. It may answer some of your questions.

Could not agree more on all points.

 

"In a nutshell:

 

  • My job feed/searches is/are littered with 90% unsuitable jobs and cheapskate clients - Same experience

  • Clients don't find/look at my fabulous Top Rated profile - Same experience

  • No suitable invites, in fact, almost no invites at all - Same experience (I have gone from earning a living wage to just having spending money<<<and that is really only because of repeat clients)

  • I have to educate clients and ask them for good feedback whenever a contract closes (really awkward!!!) Same experience and akward is an understatement.

So, what exactly is Upwork doing for me? As it stands, nothing. "

When a fair amount of people are having this same experience, then something is wrong.
