That's excellent! Congrats!
But it does point out a major fallacy with the connects system, (which were originally supposed to be somewhat proportional to the size of the jobs).
If one is bidding for a four-figure job, then it makes absolute sense to use two connects to apply.
If jobs pay $20, and I have a 10% chance of landing a particular job, (i.e., one for every ten applications), and each application effectively costs me $2 worth of connects, then 100% of my gross income is spent on finding work.
Sure, I have a number of jobs in between those levels. But the Upwork sorting algorithms clearly favor workers who stay active in the system, and sometimes I sense that there's some merit in taking some of the tiny jobs, just to remind the system that I'm still alive, even if I take a loss financially.
Plus, there are tons of workers who can't take the larger jobs at all, and the deck sure seems stacked against them.
That means that most people dont get any jobs?
