I agree I can't find invite also. There is no "Freelancers" tab and I can't find invite option anywhere. This article is out dated.
This article does not contain current information and is misleading. There is no "Freelancers" tab in the new design and I can't find "invite" option anyplace. https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211063588-Invite-Outside-Freelancers-to-Join-You-on-Upw...
How do I find the option to invite someone from outside world?
The option you are referring to is available in client accounts. It doesn't look like you have a client account and that's why you don't see the option. If you are looking to hire freelancers via Upwork, check out this help article for more information about how to add a client account.
Hi Allan Carlo,
If you already have an account on Upwork your client can hire you directly from your existing profile. Users are allowed to have only one Upwork account so you won't be allowed to create a new one.
If you've already created your profile your client doesn't need to invite you using the bring your own freelancer link. You can just give them the link to your profile and they can invite you to a job or hire you from there.
