Hey, I'm facing the same issue with the button being greyed out, preventing me from applying to jobs. I've verified my identity multiple times and changed my profile picture several times, but I'm still being asked to do the same thing repeatedly. Please help, as I've been trying to verify my identity for several days now and have made multiple attempts.

Hi,
I can't apply to any job cause it always writes that I have already applied to the job- and that's not true. What should I do?

Hi Lucy,
I wasn't able to replicate the issue on your account from my end. The job showing in your screenshot does have that error message, however I do see that you have already sent a proposal for that job. Please let us know know if you experience the error with any new jobs that you attempt to apply to.

I'm not sure what more to explain. I've sent three different messages to
support. The Apply Now button is greyed out on every job. My profile is
complete. My payment method is entered. I'm not sure what else to do and
there is no indication anywhere of what I need to do.

Why can't I apply for the job, and it is now asking for quota, I changed yet nothing happened.please help

Hi Cristal,

 

I am sorry about confusion. You need to update your profile overview with more detailed and clear information about your skills and experience. Once you improve your profile, please, do to Find Work>Profile and click "Resubmit Profile." The Marketplace Quality Team will then review your profile once again and assist you with restoring your quota.

 

Thank you!

Hi Valeria - This should show as a button on the job listing, i.e. "Update your profile to apply". It's clear there has been a lot of confusion on this, which persists into now 2017. I will update my profile to apply, but this could be easier.

Hi why i can't apply to any job?

Hi Daryll Jay,

 

I am sorry to hear you are not able to apply to jobs currently. You will need to update your profile title and overview with more information about your skills and experience. Make sure you specify what kind of jobs you expect and are capable of doing on oDesk.

For more information, see the notification sent to you yesterday.

 

Thank you!
