I am a freelancer and joined Upwork to find work. I was trying to send a proposal several months but got no response even after I added more contacts. Today I noticed all the jobs I can see belongs a day before and in this way other candidates can see the job and apply faster and get it. How I can get my feet in within this kind of service you provide? Is this kind of joke? Why I can't see the newly posted jobs and why there is nowhere I can chat with real people?
Roxana, I just looked at https://www.upwork.com/ab/find-work/ and saw a job posted 5 minutes ago with fewer than 5 proposals, no joke, so while you're waiting for a human being to reach out to you, you can try a different browser or an incognito window or emptying cache & deleting cookies and refreshing the page. Good luck.
I saw that you also have a message through our social media platform. I checked your account and can see that you are yet to save a keyword search on your job search page. Here are the steps on saving a keyword search: Find Work page > Click on the magnifying glass > It will go to a new page. On the next page, there's an option to apply filters to the keyword search. Once the filters have been applied, you can save the job search by clicking on the Save search button. After saving, all the keywords related to your saved search keyword/term will auto-populate in real time on your job feed.
Sorry, Riri, I already did it, but it is not working, The new job posting is not showing on my search, no matter what. All the posts I can see belongs to a day before.
