Hello, my profile  visibility has been set to private  due to previous inactivity. Please reset my profile to  public, I am an active canditate in multiple jobs, and I'm afraid my clients may not be able to view my full profile!

Please help!

Hi Sergio,

 

Your profile visibility has been updated. Please check this help article to learn more about how you can avoid having your profile automatically set to private. Please note that when your profile is set to private it is not shown in freelancer search results and will not be seen by clients unless you submit a proposal to their job.

 

Thank you.

Good evening, 

 

1) I am not sure why my "Pofile is Not Public" ? 

 

2) Additionally someone sent me the below guide, I clicked the link but not sure the importance and which one to check mark ? : 

 

  1. Log on to Upwork Community.
  2. Click My Profile.
  3. Click the Subscriptions & Notifications tab.
  4. Change your settings and click Save Changes.

3) From your experience, which one is more recommended to send "Proposals" or "Bid" ? What is the difference ?

 

I truly appreciate help and guidance

 

Regards

RB

Hi Rala,

1.  Yes, your profile is in the private mode now, Profile Not Public.JPG

as you can see, the option is greyed out, it is an Upwork automated option, they made it private due to inactivity, you can change by 'Clicking Here' or >goto 'find work' option, on the right side, under your photo, you will see a 'visibility' in 'private', click to send a request to Upwork to make it private.

2. This option is only for notification on the community page.

3.  Bid is just an option in the hourly job proposal, you can bid your price while others do for the same job, maybe some clients have no idea about how much hourly to charge for a job or they want to do the job for the lowest hourly rates, so this option also decides whether you will get the job or not.

 

I hope this is helpful.
