Hi Community,

I am finding a lot of freelancers with " profile set to private". Is that common around the holidays or does it mean they are not taking invites at this time ?

Thank you, Anthony

Hi Anthony,

 

When a freelancer has not earned money on Upwork for a period of two years or more, we change their profile to private to improve client search results by only showing them active freelancers. This also rewards freelancers who regularly work and get paid through Upwork by ensuring that their profiles appear instead of inactive or unavailable freelancers in search results. You can read more about this here.

 

Thanks!

Hi Waqar,

 

I'm sorry to hear you feel this way. When a freelancer has not earned money on Upwork within 90 days of their first proposal, we change their profile to private to improve client search results by only showing them active freelancers. This also rewards freelancers who regularly work and get paid through Upwork by ensuring that their profiles appear instead of inactive or unavailable freelancers in search results.

 
I have changed your profile visibility back to public, you can read more about this here.
Thanks!

I've received an email stating that my profile was put on private because I hadn't work in the past days and that the profile will be placed public once I get earnings on the platform. 

 

But this is quite hard, if my job hunts had been hard on a public profile, a private profile makes it harder so I won't be able to get a paid job within the Upwork platform because I don't have a public profile, and I won't get a public profile until I get a job on the platform. 

 

So,  I'm stuck in a loop.

Hi Ivan Jair,

 

Rest assured, when your profile is private clients are still able to see your proposals. This only means your profile is not showing up in search results. I've reset your profile visibility back to public, you can learn more about this here.

 

Thanks!
