I don't know if this is an issue common to other types of technologies/search areas, but whenever I try to filter out jobs in the C programming language, I get a mixture of insertions related to C++, C#, Objective-C and yet other unrelated results.
Do we have a workaround to this? All I have been doing to this time is using the `skill:C` syntax. In the meantime, I wrote to the help center, hoping to get consideration for the problem and possibly an adjustment in the search feature.
I don't know the solution but I'm glad you brought this up. This is not only a problem in Upwork, but it's also hard to search C related stuff on Google or other sites for obvious reasons. I don't do any more C programming these days but I definitely understand your frustration with that.
As a given, I havn't had much luck with automated search patterns on Upwork Job Searches. Manual Browsing has worked better.
Filter by Desktop Development, then scan manually
Filter by Game Developer, then scan manually
Look in places you haven't yet and click on hyperlinks you havn't followed yet.

I scan manually as well. This has worked better for me. In the past, when I search for specific job skills, I miss out on certain jobs because they didn't mention the specific skill but I was definitely qualified for it (and was something I was interested in).
I've been seeing a decent amount of C# work available. Just completed some C# work for a client.
Actually, it was a Game Programming Job, but C# was the best choice of language for what the client was asking. Look for Game Programming Gigs Oscar.
