Saved filters yielding too many irrelevant jobs

Hello, 

 

I saved my preferred searches, but the listings I receive include many more irrelevant jobs than those that fit my preferences. 

 

For example, I am filtering for English-Spanish translations, or Spanish proofreading, and the Job Feed I get includes  jobs that have nothing to do with my filters (eg. Portuguese translation, or Swedish translation proofreading). 

 

Thank you for your help.

Silvia,

 

When you do a search that you later save to your Job Feed, make sure you select a category in addition to running a search by a keyword. For example, now you have a search saved for "Translation English Spanish" but there is no category selected for that search:

You should get better results by using more filters:

Hi Valeria, 

 

Thanks. I thought I'd done that, but I'll refresh my searches and re-run the filters. 

 

Many thanks!
