Upwork uses an algorithm to calculate a percentage score that is assigned to each freelancer’s profile. This percentage is called the Upwork Job Success Score (JSS). To clients, a strong JSS signals a freelancer who meets or exceeds client expectations. These are the freelancers clients prefer to work with, so understanding how the score is derived is crucial.

While you can’t improve your score overnight, you can improve your score with the right strategies in just a few weeks. In the following Upwork Freelancing video, I talk about freelancing on Upwork, as well as everything you need to know about the Job Success Score.
