Last two months I'm unable to got any job. Just lose my bucks. Upwork become only client frendly not worker friendly. Just looking after their profit. I'm geting fustrated. Is their works any hidden tricks? Friends do you have any solution? Waiting for your openion.
This is an English speaking platform. Clients don't like dealing with people that don't understand them or can't express themself properly. The language is essential.
Agreed! I have been on Upwork for some time now and have yet to land any work. It is such a flooded and competetive tool. I am working on a personal video and portfolio which I plan to upload very soon, but I feel like Upwork offers little incentive to freelance seekers to hire new freelancers. This has been a frustrating experience for me and I no longer pay for the platform, because that certainly didn't help.
OB & BN,
I've been working on UW for over 8 years now and I can tell you that, unfortunately, this is the very driest desert period in terms of viable jobs that I've ever experienced.
There are a number of reasons for this, which I have neither the time nor inclination to get into here and now.
The sad reality for UW FLs right now is that--even if you're highly experienced and qualified in your field--there are very, very few opportunities worth your time, effort or Connects.
If you're new to the platform and/or have little to no UW job history, I cannot imagine a worse time to begin your FL career.
If you need some solace please understand that I, along with many Top Rated FLs, have faced the reality that UW is no longer a viable platform for even supplementary income.
The % of time-waster/bottom-feeding/fraud clients has skyrocketed, and the % of viable/worthwhile clients has plummeted, making this platform a frustrating time/money sink.
So, like most of us, it's time to either fish or cut bait!
Best of luck to you both.
I'm here since 2008. Also, I always have 5.0 + Top rated + Plus member. I can guess the main reason all this can be about. What about Upworks' stocks? Is there some logic?
Unfortunately, but I'm looking to change my job direction out of here.
