Hi Mike, 


Currently only 2 Specialized profiles can be created in each freelancer profile. We do not have plans of expanding the number of Specialized Profiles that can be created. But I'll pass along your suggestion to the team for their consideration. 

Thank you for sharing it with us!

Hi Ashwini, 


I'm not familiar with this skill so I did a little research. Should this be under Accounting & Consulting category?

Hello,

 

No option to add something new to my portfolio unless I have a specialized profile. Why is Upwork kind of forcing this? I do not like specialized profiles; prefer to have just my general profile.

When I click on “Not now” the windows disappears.

Also, when will I be able to remove this or at least hide? I don’t need to see this displayed on top of my profile.

I’m also not interested in pre-packaged project. Can Upwork please add an option to hide? It’s another thing I don’t need to see, I will not be using it.

Thank you.

Yep, I don't get it either, especially since there is no logical connection between having specialized profiles and having a portfolio, that I can see, at least. I finally gave in a few months ago when the desire to have something new and shiny in my portfolio outweighed the resistance... ah well. I don't care about the packages though, I don't look at my profile that often.

Hi Natacha,

 

It is by design that there is no option to add new portfolio items to the general profile anymore. Freelancers who do not yet have specialized profiles will not be able to create new portfolio projects until they create a specialized profile.

I know, that's the reason for my complaint. I should not be forced Smiley Sad

 

Anyway, thank you for your promt response.

You can't delete your ONLY specialized profile. Only a second one
