Most buyers are unskilled in finding freelancers to invite. Those that rely on JSS or ranking are shown profiles of people who have benefited UW the most, not necessarily their clients.The invitations reflect this.

 

I spend about two hours reviewing profiles, not JSS or scores or ranks. If the profile reflects an understanding of how business works, and reflects at least the minimum skill requirements, I invite. Many of my hired freelancers had no UW record when I hired them.

 

As a freelancer, I bypass job posts with more than ten invitations sent. Even if I'm one of the invited.
