I have been on ProZ for many years, both as a free member and a paying member, but return in terms of jobs has been a bit disappointing, especially in the last three years with the deepening of the crisis and now with covid.

What I expect from the webinar is tips on how to get jobs so I can afford the annual fee again and then try to get Certified Pro status, which seems to be a big asset when seeking jobs.

Since you have asked this question three times already and the presenter did not bother to even attempt to answer your question, I registered for it myself to see what would happen. After clicked the registration button, I got a message saying "Your booking has been confirmed for this free event. You have been signed-up for GoToWebinar and the webinar access link has been emailed to you.". I then received an e-mail from ProZ.com with this line of text in it: "You will receive a confirmation email from Go To Webinar." However, I have not yet received such a message, and it's not in my spam folder either. Could it be that this webinar is vapourware?

Well, there is clearly something wrong with ProZ.com's systems, because I didn't received the invite.
