Hi Upwork Community,

 

[Note: apologies for miscategorizing this! I'd like to move it to the proper category but haven't figured out how.]

 

I'm new at being active here in Upwork, and have been trying my darndest to get gigs here. I have not been successful but I chalk it up to a few factors on my end. What I am troubled by today is that, at the time when I am most in need of gigs and means of income, and I have an active candidacy in plain sight, my account is set to private without consulting me because I've failed to get gigs or get paid for gigs during the last month. I have to request to be made public again, I am not allowed to do it on my own and resume my daily "search and propose." 

 

I imagine such measures were put in place to avoid crowding by inactive accounts, but why prevent me from potentially (finally) landing a gig, if it's obvious I am trying, ESPECIALLY when times are very difficult for freelancers? I am on here looking for work every day. Shouldn't Upwork just monitor account activity to carefully determine which freelancers don't use the platforms and which are just getting their legs under them? Or perhaps suspend the policy while the world is trying to survive?

 

Respectfully,

Naomi

Hi Naomi,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Your profile visibility has been reset back to Public. When your profile is set to private it is not shown in freelancer search results; however, you can still submit proposals and clients will be able to view your profile. Please check out this help article for more information.

Doing what you suggest would mean Upwork cares about treating freelancers well.

 

But it doesn't.  Just read through these threads.  They care more about having "Gurus" counter even the mildest criticism of Upwork.  It is shameful.

Hi, I just got this message (attached) and don't understand why? I submitted proposals to 3 jobs within the last few days. So, can you please explain the change to my status?

 

thanks,

Christina

Hurt my brain, still recovering.

(have googled it, it's a quote from a book; no idea how it applies here)
