We are testing out a new feature that allows you to boost the visibility of your job post for a one-time fee. Upgrading your job post to a Featured Job enables you to reach more freelancers in less time. Specifically:
- Your job post will include an eye-catching blue badge to stand out among other posts.
- You will have the ability to move your job up to the top of search results several times if you want to attract more proposals.
- The job will be showcased in emails sent to Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers (these freelancers also get an incentive: a reduced freelancer fee on these jobs).
- You will receive a shortlist of relevant freelancers to help you find the right freelancer for your project.
I am already working with an Upwork Talent Specialist. How does this program differ?
Talent Specialists you work with through Upwork Pro or our pilot program can help you review your post, source talent, and flag top freelancers. But only a “Featured Job” will include an eye-catching badge in the job feed, allow you to move your job to the top of search results, and help you reach more freelancers, including Top Rated and Rising Talent, in less time. Also, when you upgrade to a Featured Job, top talent get the incentive of a reduced freelancer fee to use Upwork for your job.
If a Talent Specialist has already worked on your job, they’ll review it again if you opt to have it be a Featured Job. Once you receive additional proposals, they’ll update the shortlist of relevant freelancers you received previously.
