I'm new to Upwork and i can't submit proposals - any advice or guidance would be gratefully accepted.
I have created a profile and it has been approved. If I come to the site without signing in, I can see jobs but, when I get to "Submit a proposal" I am left looking at a blank screen. If I sign in first, I can't see any jobs and the search function doesn't bring up any jobs, even when I'm searching for a job that I can see when signed out.
Am I doing something stupid or missing something here?
Make sure that you have connects available to bid. I can't remember if the proposal button greys out if you don't, but it might be something to check just in case it's an easy fix.
From the main page, click the drop down menu next to your picture-->Settings-->Membership and Connects
Looks like you have already selected your Membership plan and received the connects. You should be able to apply for jobs on Upwork now. Let us know if you have any further questions.
Still doesn't seem to be working. When I'm logged out, I can see jobs. When I'm logged in, I can't see any (a screenshot of what I see while logged in is attached). Regardless of what search terms I use, I still can't see any jobs while logged in. If I try to submit a proposal for a job which I can see when logged out, the screen goes blank after I log in.
Is there some setting I need to change or something that I'm not doing?
I tried but wasn't able to replicate the issue you are having. The jobs should show up once you enter a keyword or select a category. Are you experiencing the same issue when using a different browser? Could you please try clearing cache and cookies and trying to run a search again?
