Hi there, fellow Upwork-ers. I've been on the platform for about 3 months now, and during the first 2, as I got used to using the site, work started regularly coming in. Since the beginning of September though, despite applying for almost everything within my fields, I've gotton virtually no new work. I'm a bit flummixed as my portfoilos have got better and better as I've progressed, and I'm very quick to respond to new listings. My ratings have been 90% good, but so little in terms of work is coming back. Can anyone explain this? Is there something I'm doing wrong? Has there perhaps been a sudden increase in Upwork uses, therefore making work much more competative? Or is this just a lull? Does anyone have any advice to improve this situation. Thanks! Shaun

Thank you for your message. I took a look at your profile and have a few suggestions:
Also, you have a number of contracts without feedback. No feedback on too many contracts can count negatively toward your Job Success Score. When a contract is complete, we advise that you ask the client to close the contract so that they are required to leave feedback.
I hope this helps!
