Some significant modifications are being made to Upwork’s Connects, one of the world’s largest freelance marketplace. Connects are used to put a bid on a client’s project placement in order to earn their business. Listed below is what you may expect to happen to start in December.
- If you react to a proposal and are invited for an interview, you will receive ten connections. You may also earn up to 50 Connects every seven days if you participate in the contest.
- There is a rise in the amount of Connects that a fresh talent receives as time goes on. They will now receive 80 Connects, of which 40 will be awarded for completing the Upwork Readiness Test.
- Increasing the number of free Connects available on the Freelancer Basic plan each month from 0 to 10 per month.
- In the Freelancer plus plan, the number of free Connects each month has been increased from 70 to 80 per month.
- It has been decided to increase the Freelancer Basic and Plus Connects Rollover Limit from 140 to 200 each month.
These new Connect enhancements are incredible. Previously, new freelancers would receive 20 connections, but the number of connections has recently been increased to 80. When freelancers complete the Upwork readiness exam and receive the Rising Talent badge, they will be rewarded with additional connections.
Accounts with the Freelancer Basic plan receive 10 free Connects per month, while those with the Freelancer Plus plan receive 80 free Connects per month.
Additionally, with a new rollover limit of 200 Connects at the end of each month, freelancers will be able to maintain more Connects. Please understand that winning an interview is not the same as obtaining a position.
Connects on Upwork: So that’s everything you need to know.
- You’ve submitted a proposal for an employment opportunity.
- You receive an invitation to have an interview with a prospective customer.
- All you have to do is answer and appear in an interview to be eligible for a bonus.
Following the completion of the interview, you will earn a bonus of 10 Connects. Every seven days, there is a chance to earn up to 50 Connects by completing tasks.
Keep in mind that none of these Connects rewards apply to job invites or direct offers of employment.
