    HOT TOPIC Significant Change to Upwork coming in May 2019... “Pay to Bid”

    You read that right. You will now have to pay $0.15 per Connect to bid on a job, with some jobs costing up to 6 Connects or $.90. The most noticeable impact? Less competition for jobs.

    What is your way of searching projects on Upwork?

    I tried “saved searches” filtered by technology (for example ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC). However saved searches are good only for monitoring just added projects. But when I decide to look for a project, I’d like to review those that a few days old too. I don’t constantly monitor new projects...

    EXECUTION ZF's progress thread

    Alright, just as I said. I would post some results from my Reddit tests. It seems that the folks need to see something tangible.
