Over the last few days I've noticed more and more jobs that won't allow me to bid immediately, with the message "This Job is available to a few selected Sellers for the next ????". To be eligible to bid first for similar Jobs add relevant skills to your profile." I've been invited to a couple of these jobs, but it's frustrating as other jobs ask for skills that I certainly have, and yet I'm not allowed to bid. Are the 'relevant skills' I need to add the preset tags in my profile? I can't add more of these as I'm only allowed to list 10. I've been a freelancer for many years - I have more than 10 skills.
Surely it should be up to me and the buyer to decide whether I have the skills to do the job, not some match between a category and what I happen to have been able to fit in my list?
Is this a new feature? If it is, you need to at least increase the limit on the number of skills a seller can list.
