The Job Digest email is one of the perks of the Top Rated and Rising Talent programs. Jobs are featured based on your skills, job history and proposal history. We welcome your feedback on how we can improve the digest.

Throughout the week, freelancers and agencies in these programs can expect to receive email alerts that clients posted great job opportunities on Upwork. The digest is only sent when there is a great possible match available publicly in the marketplace and you’ll receive no more than three digests per week.

The most successful freelancers on Upwork win more work by actively searching for jobs and submitting proposals. The job digest surfaces jobs you may not have seen that fit your profile and history to help you take advantage of unnoticed opportunities.

How does Upwork decide which projects to send me?

Jobs are included in the Job Digest when:

  • The title, category and required skills match past jobs you have searched or submitted proposals for in the last 3 months
  • The subcategories and descriptions are similar to jobs you have searched or submitted proposals for in the last 3 months
  • The job type (fixed-price/hourly) matches jobs you have searched or submitted proposals for in the last 3 months
  • The job keywords contain keywords you searched or submitted proposals for in the last 3 months

What kind of projects can I expect to see in the digest?

The jobs that appear in your digest are public jobs with no hires at the time that they are sent to you, and have fewer than 10 recommended freelancers who have submitted proposals.

Most of the jobs you’ll receive in your digest have been newly posted. We will only send you older jobs if the client has been actively reviewing proposals in the past few days.

Why haven’t I received the Job Digest?

You may not receive one every day or even every week. If you are currently in the Top Rated or Rising Talent program, set yourself as available for work, and check to make sure you are opted in to receive it in your email settings.
