Freelancers, don't waste your time setting up a profile on Upwork®

Freelancers, do not waste your time setting up a profile on Upwork®. You are likely to spend hours on it only to find out later in the fine print that (quote):

»While we would like to offer every qualified freelancer a spot, admission is highly competitive as Upwork receives more than 10,000 freelancer registrations daily. To help ensure that the freelancers we accept have the best chance at finding opportunities on our platform, we can only accept a small percentage of those who want to join.«

You will not be provided with any helpful information on why they did not accept you and the whole procedure looks like automated decision-making. 🙁
