Upwork Skill Tests Removed/Retired

Just got email from Upwork about this, and I am glad they gonna remove it on July 9. I honestly didn't find it valuable and did some marketing, SEO tests.

  • Test questions didn't have sense. It was like they covered mainstream/formal educational books, and based questions on that. On other hand, Upwork is Freelance platform, and most of people on it work from home and are self thought
  • Tests are not up to date
  • You can cheat on tests by Googling Upwork Tests

At the end with all above mentioned, it doesn't provide reliable indicator or measurement to determine the skill level.

Anyway, glad they removed it. 👍
