Hi Mandar,

 

I checked this for you and can confirm you were invited by our team member. 

 

Talent specialists are part of the Upwork team assisting new clients with posting their jobs and finding freelancers with the right skill set to invite to their jobs. If you would like, you can request to be removed from the program here

 

Thank you.

He means "Why do you want to get invites from the Talent Specialists?"

Most of us found that the jobs we are invited to by them are either not even remotely suitable, or don't pay anywhere near our rate."

 

The system might work better at the entry-level end of the marketplace, so give it a go and see how it works out.

Hi Perta,

 

Thank you for posting and explaing what "Why" was for, Actually earlier i always got direct invites for job interview by Talent Specialists but for the first time it came in Private message/direct message. So i wanted to know if it's a legit or spam message, so i can report it to Upwork if it's a spam message.

 

I thought this program can help freelancers to get more jobs and so i said i want to stay with it.

 

Thanks,

Mandar
