I am sorry that you have been receiving less invitations from clients. However, I have checked and your account is not under review. Freelancers can be given an advance warning asking them to improve their performance and only if no improvements are made, their accounts can be put under a formal review and they will receive a notification about that action as well.
I love following your posts because you offer practical solutions.
I have the same predicament as Lynnette and have confirmed that my account is not under review. Please what is the best thing for me to do?
I have customized my profile page and only apply to jobs within my job skill.
what are the chances of me getting any new client if my applications are hidden? or should i quit Odesk?
I am almost new to Upwork because it's only 2 months since I've joined.
But I've been working hard so far and luckily got Top rated Badge in my first working month
I was so happy and expected to get more long term jobs because Upwork certified my skills and professionality.
But unfortunately, I am not receiveing any job invitation recently and not sure what I have to do.
I tried to study Upwork policy again and polish my profile again according to your guide, but no luck.
I really appreciate if you check my profile and give me some advice to boost my career.
Thank you in advance
i am also facing the same problem as Lynnette May. I have been in Odesk since 2013 and its only now that my applications seems to be hidden. I used to appear in all the list of job applications untill 2 weeks ago when it all began. i apply for jobs within my skill set but my name is still missing from the list of applicants.
i have confirmed from the Odesk support that my account is not under review.
So Ronald, are you saying that we can do nothing about the Odesk Robots?
Since my applications are either hidden or placed below others, what are the chances of me ever getting a client? should i continue or stop applying for jobs?
Kindly offer a solution.
i got 4-5 invitations automatically from clients fter my first 2 projects. But now a days i didn't getting ny automatic invitations.
I thought it's due to withdrawing the proposals.( i dothis for refund my connections to my account ).
And i changed my profile contents.
I got good ratings, but not getting any automatic invitations
Thanks all for answers.
I just got home from travel and saw four emails. Hoped one of them would be a job interview or invite. No.
It was a message from oDesk:
"Congratulations! You have successfully verified your identity on oDesk."
My ID was verified two years ago, I have 74 jobs and over 1000 hours.
Live support agent said it's some oDesk bug and they are receiving ton of complaints.
To me it looks like a brutal joke.
