Hi all,

I have a problem hope you guys can help me regarding this.

I am a top rated freelancer with 96% job success and aspecting more new jobs and inviations to interview,but getting nothing from last few weeks.

Before becoming a top rated i received atleast 3 to 4 invites per week but now its stop like i am not on this flatform anymore......
A top rated will recieve more jobs , more invites . I m getting just nothing.

 Why this happening to me?

@ Muhammad W. --


Invitations come... they go. Sometimes I receive three or four invitations in a week, then I can go two or three weeks with no invitations at all. (Check my profile -- I am Top-Rated, etc.)  It's just due to the cycling of profiles by Upwork and to the vicissitudes of... whatever.

What Janean said, plus - most invitations are spam. I get a handful a week and I only respond to about 1% of them because they're usually ridiculously low budgets for an ill-defined project, or not related to my field in any way. You're really not missing out on anything.

Yeah, for sure...I agree with these observations. I was so inundated in January that I couldn't keep up; this month I've had to actively seek work to fill in the gaps. I think we get cycled as "prominent" on clients' feeds or searches...sometimes we come up, sometimes we don't...that's just a matter of visibility.

You guys are right but the point the i am not getting new jobs as applied to relevant jobs to my skills. That's why i feel that my profile visibility is not good or something went wrong.


Well thank you guys.

Muhammad, are you getting interviews or responses from your proposals now, or still not getting any luck like me?

Hi all..
Muhammad, I have the same problem. I thought that when I become Top rated things will chane on better, but from that day till now, I only got 2, maybe 3 invitations. Before I used to get 3-4 invitation every week.
And on my proposals for jobs, 99% i don't get responses..

I am a top rated freelance and also have an agency profile. Why is that I haven't received any invitations so far in last 1 year or more.

I feel you guys!!! I 'was' a top rated freelancer here in Upwork and I seldom receive any invitations from clients. Now that my job score went down to 85% I find it harder to get more jobs. I even don't have any active contracts at the moment and when I apply to jobs (which was posted less than a minute ago) I still don't get interviews from clients. I am feeling hopeless but hopefully things will change sooner. :-(
