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!

When you set your profile privacy settings to private then it means the client will only see your profile to whom you will submit a proposal. Your profile is visible to the client to whom you have submitted 8 proposals. I suggest you keep your profile privacy to Upwork Users Only. This will only allow clients & Upwork users to see it not to some outsider. Through this, you can get some invites to private jobs as well or from different clients. You will not get invites when your profile is private because it will not appear in the search engine.

 

Hope you find a solution through this.

 

Thanks.

Simply click on the green button on this page and wait for Upwork to set your profile back to public.

He didn't. It was set to private by Upwork because he went too long without earnings anything. He can't change the setting himself.
