In my opinion i would like to have some free connects for each freelancer, i have worked hard over past 5 years on upwork, but due to high number of application i do not get enough of interviews. Upwork deducts 20% off payment, is not it resonable to give some free connects each month, so atleast we can submit 2-3 jobs per month. 

 

Some job required 6 connects , so we lose $0.9 if we are not selected for the job, what is the use of this ? atleast we should get a percentage of refund for delicined proposal. Previously it was job platform , everyone can make life out of it, now all became business minded. 

 

Upwork please be resonable for us. Atleast 20 free connect is much helpful for us.

I just "wasting" bidding this and that with my free connects and knowing that I'll not get a free connect every month. I thought my number of connect will be reset every month.

If I don't get hired until my connect runs out, I'd got to pull it out of my pocket.

From here I feel it's like a gambling. I help the upwork revenue with my payment but I don't get any guarantee that I'll be hired.

 

I'm Ok with the massive fee, but charging an unemployment upworker..geezz

Freelancing is a gamble, bro.

 

Life is also a gamble.

It sounds like you don't have much confidence in your skills and ability to market yourself.

I always love how the patronizing ones with the "sage" advice can't figure out how to work the quote function on the forum. 

 

Some things have changed. Nice to see that some things have stayed the same.

did they do away with free connects a month? I STRONGLY agree with you. There is so many jobs and $1 a job is way to high! UP work please help!
