I am trying to learn as much as I can about Upwork before applying for a job.  What does it mean when it lists the number of proposals under the job description?


Thanks for any help.

Karen, welcome to Upwork. The number of proposals equals the number of freelancers who have already applied for the job, and bear in mind that this number probably isn't accurate up to the minute, so the actual number of proposals can be higher than what's displayed with the job. Also, the numbers given in the Job Feed (Find Work) can be less than the number shown when you click the job title in the feed, in which case the higher number is the more accurate number.
