Virginia, I tried to TU your comment and the system decided to not work ... but add another 'kudo' to your comment.

Until recently, I thought all job-match algorithmns were comically inept. Then I joined a new service (offered by a social media platform that Micrososft wants to buy) that's batting 1.000.  Three invitations. Three perfect matches. 

 

It CAN be done!

The algorithms are not inept, the systems analyst is.

"Get over yourself Jr."  Now that's funny.

 

Yes, I ignore posts that have "rock star" or "ninja" in the title, as well as RFPs that state "this should be an easy job for someone who knows what they're doing". All these clients with ESP. I'm always tempted to reply that I don't know what I'm doing, but for $5, lets give it a whirl.

 

Better to be a "child of the sixties" than something that sounds like it has a lot of legs!

What's your complaint?  It should only take a few hours for a competent developer.

I automatically just ignore any Upwork email that says "Job Recommedation" because they never match my skill set and are for horrible jobs.

I thought all jobs had to  be posted in English, yet today I get an Upwork recommended job that is in French.  Bless their hearts.
