I recieved last invitaiton at April 2018. 
I was not active regular basis at upwork for 6 month after April 2008. I start applying to job from middle of November 2018.
I strangly found I did not recieve job invitaion anymore. Is there any specific issue on my profile?

 The first things a client looking at your profile are:

  • not done anything for over a year
  • the only job done in the last 2 and a half years ended with catastrophically bad feedback
  • No Job Success Score

Take a step back. Put yourself in a client's shoes.

 

Would you invite yourself?

Hi,

I have worked on Upwork, 

I have a 98% job success (a few days ago was 100% even though I have only successful collaboration) and great reviews but still, no invitations for over 6 months. 

How is this possible?

Thank you.

I am facing the same issues as Gabriela. No invites at all. Even if I search myself among freelancer even narrowing the search results based on my location and to match my profile (which a client will never do) still I am listed somewhere on the 4th or 5th page while the first page is full of zero earning or low rated freelancers .

Hi Rafeh, 

 

Results vary depending on the type of profile used to conduct the search, since a number of factors are taken into account. Clients will always get a different search result for the same keyword/filters than freelancers using the same parameters. In addition, freelancers are regularly rotated in search results and the order the profiles are displayed in will change every couple of weeks.

No one is guaranteed invites, even with a high JSS. Maybe clients haven't found you in search results. Maybe few people are hiring in your work category. Maybe the clients who did find you in search didn't want to invite you. No one knows for sure why you aren't getting invites.

They are testing a feature where the client has to pay if he wants to send out more than 3 invitations, no idea if they are still doing that or in which areas. 

Plus, as Petra said, at this time you realistically should not expect to receive invitations at all, there are vast number of freelancers offering the same skills with much better JSS. You can recover from it, but it's going to be hard, and you will have to rely on writing perfect proposals to potential clients, plus, of course, delivering flawless results.
