It's a percentage, so it wouldn't be 2 unless it's 2 out of 100 and then it would be 2% or 20 out of 1000 ...I can keep going here but you know percentage math is hard...but those numbers are calculated randomly and batched so who knows when it will show
Hi W. Dan,
I believe you are referring to the Recommended score in My Stats. It won't appear until you have a minimum of 5 ended contracts with 3 distinct clients. You need to complete a few more jobs with different clients in order for that percentage to appear.
Thanks for your response. Would it help if I asked my remaining employer to close her contract, even though she has promised additional work in the future?
I would like to get more work, but literally overnight my rating plunged from 90% rising star to 63%, Upwork has not provided a logical explanation.. The job posts that fit my qualifications prefer a 90% rising star.. I have sent 15-20 unsuccessful proposals Who wants to hire someone with a 63% rating? I know I am crying the blues, but I do feel like Yossarian.
Any helpoful thoughts?
It looks like you've had 4 distinct clients on Upwork including the client you currently have an active contract with. So once the client closes that contract, there won't be enough contracts for your Recommended score to be calculated still.
That said, if the client closes and gives you positive feedback on your current contract, it should benefit your Job Success score. If no work is expected for a while, it's better to have it closed.
