Hi Sudhir, 

Please know that as an exclusive agency freelancer, you will not be able to bid on projects as a sole freelancer. All your projects will go through the agency. If you are a non-exclusive freelancer, you should be able to bid both as an agency member, and as a freelancer.

You do have over 70 jobs in progress, some dating back to 2014. If I were a client, that would look weird to me. I am always wondering why that happens. Any particular reason for that?

It might turn off a client, they might either think you are actually still working on them, and have no time, or are not working on them, and wonder about the reason why they are not closed. Closed jobs will give you feedback, which is a marketing tool, why are you not using that?
