Why am I not getting interviews?

While checking my stats today, I came across the fact that I have only been invited to 7 jobs in the last 90 days! There has been a time when even Upwork Talent Agents would invite me for interviews and now, I see there have been no interviews at all! 

 

There could be something at my profile which I am overlooking or something I am missing out on. Are there any recommendations you've to share?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Zoha,

I see your profile, it's outstanding. Things happen, you know. There may be several reasons for getting no invitations. I have faced the same issue till December 2018. And I found that it was all my fault. I couldn't sharpen my axe for 4 long months. I had bad times with my father's cancer, and I didn't get enough time to spend time in Upwork. And now its again on track. 

 

So maybe you are not that active now in Upwork once you used to be. This may be a great reason.

Hope it helps.

Wish you a happy new year.

 

Thanks

Sagar

Hey Sagar! 

Thanks for the revert

I agree that I have not been actively "bidding" from the last 6 months. Be it repetitive work from previous clients, travel plans or just loads of work to do already. 2018 was when I started taking one step at the time and that probably is what's went wrong here. I think I should have just kept up with the flow.

Thanks for pointing out on this! 

Cheers

Zoha

 Upwork's talent specialists seem to be busy hiding our proposals from clients without our or clients' consent. That might be the reason.

Baris, I have read the entire thread and my heart is sinking, this makes so much sense now!
