I have noticed the number of jobs that are posted on or average (open search 165,036 jobs found) now - TODAY. I continue using of Upwork platform for the last 6+ years and I have seen in the past few years the number of jobs posted on Upwork are from 1, 80,000 to 1, 95,000+ or more...! Can anyone know and advise why Upwork slows down to post the jobs?
I can't say for sure why this is the case. But I would like to think that this is because jobs are also seasonal. It is summer in other parts of the world, and many clients may also be away during the summer season. A lot of top freelancers in the past have said that job posts decrease during this season and the holidays.
Hopefully, you will see changes once summer is over for other countries.
