re: "I posted my luxurious resume, What’s up with the algorithm and why can’t I view my resume.pdf?"

 

If you can't view it, you can be certain that potential clients can't view it either.

 

Nobody who is successul on Upwork as a freelancer "posts their resume" and calls it a day.

 

Clients who use Upwork may view freelancers' "profiles" or "profile pages."

 

If you don't have a real profile page, and you are competing with other freelancers who DO have a profile page, then you are obviously at a disadvantage when it comes to being picked to be hired for jobs.

I can appreciate that. As I said I uploaded my resume. Read that a copy what sent with proposal. But it’s the profile page that clients see and not actual resume and profile page does not post uploaded resume which makes me wonder why I was asked to upload in first place. But hey it’s been fun having gurus gang up me.
