As most know I'm a resume writer. Today we hit a new low in Job Recommendations and in Job Invitations
Today I got a message stating:
This job was posted less than five minutes ago, and we think it’s a good match for you.
3D models in OBJ or 3Dmax posted in the Category of 3D Modeling &CAD.
PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE - FIX YOUR SYSTEM !!!
I thought as a Plus Member (as in I pay extra over and above the 10% you already get) I was going to get appropriate invitations, would be listed as a suggested Freelancer in my Category of Resume & Cover Letter Writing
Why do I constantly receive inappropriate invitations to jobs I am in no way qualified to do???
Maybe you could create a 3D OBJ resume using 3DMax.
Instead of reading a person's resume as a PDF file or Word document, the potential employer could watch as 3D letters scroll with a gradual rotation/tilt pattern, while floating above a 3D model of Seattle.
I think no one missed the point they are just critising the system.These types of jobs are for me but some times I see jobs from your catagory even I did not check that catagory but it do show in my job feed.
I have taken note of your threads about this as well as other members of the Community. I apologize for the non-relevant invites you have been receiving.I appreciate your feedback and you are being heard. This is something that we have sent to the team and are working on improving.
I received a private job invite today that is worth noting because:
1) It totally relates to the services I provide
2) It was sent by a Silver tier client with good feedback
3) It was a decent, but not steller job description
On the other hand:
1) The client has other, similiar open jobs
2) The client sent a canned invite (no big, but it's always nice to see "I saw your profile and...").
3) The client sent out a lot of private invites (which in itself is not a huge deal, but they invited people from MANY countries).
4) The client is in Europe, and the job in question would require a fair amount of communication
Needless to say, it's nice to see an examply of the system "working as intended".
Having said this, I look forward to the day when:
1) Legit clients find the Freelancer Search function much improved
2) New clients are trained to invite as carefully as we are told to bid carefully
3) Scammy clients are a memory
