Upwork Is becoming increasigly difficult or Is it just me facing this issue?

Getting a job on Upwork has been very very difficult lately, and I cannot figure out why I am facing this problem I have tried to boost my proposal... It has not helped. 

Hi!

Is an Upwork problem, many scammers posting jobs, a few professional jobs, a lot of freelancers, and Upwork is not solving the problems.

So, we report the problems, but nothing is getting better in the last months - years.

So, is not only you. Unfortunately, there are a lot of posts about these problems, and we don't see changes.

My suggestion: Don't waste your money buying connects and boosting your bids. You are paying to Upwork for getting a job instead of receiving money for completing a job. 

 

Thanks a lot,  I think it is high time I stopped boosting my proposal.

Hey Ifedi, please shorten your Summary and change your title at the top to 1 to 2 keywords that businesses are searching for. Thanks!

I just did that, but does that actually help??

Yes, I have completed $850k in Sales on Upwork and every proper modification helps. Thanks!

Please, can you review the changes I made and drop a comment?
