Random jobs on my profile and Jobs are not updating correctly

Hello Team,

 

I am faicng this issue for past 2 days. I am not seeing relevant jobs. Like i am seeing TickTok , youtube management and couple other catagories jobs in my Most recent feed. It used to be only Technical Support or Microsoft 365 and Migration related jobs. I am not sure what is going on. 

 

If i refresh 2 or 3 times the search is changing not sure, if development team is working on something or what the issue is.

 

Thanks

Thanks so much Valeria, I'm grateful. It actually works fine now.

I have an issue regarding "most recent Jobs". The system shows a huge amount of unrelated jobs. I can't proceed to find a job related to my skills.

Hi Osama,

 

Thank you for your message. Could you please try saving some searches? This should help populate your feed with the relevant jobs. You can try searching different skills applicable to your profile. 

 

Thank you,

Hello Pradeep, even with saved searches, I am getting some irrelevant jobs. But the problem is, why "Best Matches" tab is showing relevant jobs but not "Most Recent" tab (not since a few days ago anyway) ?

Clearly someone in Upwork changed something that broke it

In the last few days,precisely since the start of November,the most recent jobs in my account is filled with irrelevant jobs from multiple fields which are not mentioned in my skills.I don't have Java anywhere in my profile yet I am getting jobs related to Java.

This issue is getting escalated day by day. What's upwork doing on this? For the past one week, it's been like this. A lot of irrelevant jobs coming up on the feeds. Please help us look into this issue and fix it once and for all. Upwork wasn't like this in the past. Please what's going on? 

 

Admin please help please

True...no jobs in the most recent jobs section are matching my skills and because of this I am not able to bid on jobs matching my skills

Admin please help, I've tried all the strategies stated by people here to solve the irrelevant job post issue, but everything is still the same. Please, any help? Thank you

Helloโ€š Setup your computer's date and time correctly. I think then the issue will solve.

Hi Dr, Ayuba,

 

The jobs showing on "My Feed" are based on the filters of your Saved Search. This means that when you search for jobs and save them, our system will remember the criteria you've chosen and will try to suggest the nearest jobs you've saved and searched.


However, if there is none saved, it will be based on your categories. Since categories are broad ( ie: Engineering has many kinds), the system may give you many skills that are not exactly relevant to what you want to see (but in a way related such as programming, you may also see jobs related to designs or animation which are not the same but can be related).


I highly suggest that you start manually searching and saving projects from time to time. However, we would like to set your expectation that the effect will not be immediate as it also takes some time to fetch the results.

Thank you for your response Annie.

 

I've tried the strategy you stated above, I've saved several searches that are related to my niche or skillsets, yet I keep seeing several irrelevant jobs.

 

Please, what do I do? Or can you connect me with the customer service to discuss my issue with them?

 

Thank you

Hi Team,

 

I don't understand if we get our feed results from "saved jobs", then what is the use of skills that I have tagged in my profile?

Hi Amit,

 

Thank you for your message. If there are no saved jobs, your Job Feed will be based on the skills, categories and experiences added to your profile. Since categories are broad ( ie: Engineering has many kinds), the system may give you many skills that are not exactly relevant to what you want to see (but in a way related such as programming, you may also see jobs related to designs or animation which are not the same but can be related). This is the reason why we highly suggest freelancers start manually searching and saving projects from time to time. However, we would like to set your expectation that the effect will not be immediate as it also takes some time to fetch the results.

 

Thank you,

Pradeep

I am also facing this issue since that time, the MOST RECENT tab is showing totally irrelevant jobs, I did everything with the browser, deleting cookies, updating skills, and categories even saved searches, but nothing changed. also I was not able to add categories again after deleting till today, not sure what's going on Upwork its really disturbing whole things. 

Setup your computer's date and time correctly. 

My job Feed is not Updating/loading? There is no new job post-show from the hours

It's been a whole month now I am still getting a lot of irrelevant jobs on the Most recent tab, about 99% wrong Jobs. it's unaffordable for me (and for everyone too) to spend extra hours scrolling through and reading the stuff which is not related to me. It's like reading newspaper in any ancient language. I did everything (saved searches, cookies, categories, quotations for keywords that contain spaces) but everything failed, and also there is no any feedback from Upwork on what was going on. Is there any valid solution please other than "restart your PC" tricks. ?

hello, after doing everything you suggested yesterday, I see that the problem continues, even if I filter by the featured skills, it doesn't show the recent offers but the ones from the past days, and it doesn't show the recent ones.

Hi Beatriz,

 

Thank you for reaching out. Could you please provide a screenshot and let us know what filters you used so we can include them in our report?
