Hi, this is not applicable to me since my specialty is not listed in the options. I've submitted it as a suggestion yet the huge banner still clutters up my profile. Can I request to have it removed please?
I've been asking this same question for months. It would be really nice to get a straight answer, and a solution!
I have been seen recently at some freelance profiles that they have different descriptions for every set of skills they have. For example, a grafic designer who has a tab on her profile that describes her job as an illustrator; another tab as a logo designer an so. Each tab has a different profile description and job history.
How do they do that?
I would like to do that with my freelance Upwork account, since I can do different types of jobs and mixing all on one single description could be confusing for prospect clients.
How do I add to my specialized "Presentation Design? profile? According to the Help Center there is an "edit" option on the specialized profile but I can't find it anywhere.
Please do click on Menage Specialized Profiles link, which is located on the right side above the Specialized Profiles tabs:
Once you do, please click on the three dots drop-down menu icon, and chose Edit:
This will present to you the Edit Specialized Profile page.
I hope this helped.
a. For specialized profiles under "Writing": why is it that some offer industry options and others don't?
Ex: Content Writing has industry options, but Copywriting doesn't. Screenshots attached.
b. I've also noted job postings where there are industries specified by the client that aren't available to be added to the specialized profile to make it more relevant and a better fit.
Please view: **Edited for Community Guidelines**
The client was able to specify "Fitness" as an industry, yet it isn't available to be added to my specialized profile. The closest is "Healthcare and Medical," which I've already added.
Thanks for your question and feedback. I'll share it with the team that's improving Specialized Profiles and adding more categories, skills and industries to them.
You're very welcome and thank you too. Your prompt response and help are appreciated as always. I was flummoxed how clients are able to add industries that don't exist for me to add unless these are suggestions from them that were auto-accepted.
I'd really appreciate a follow-up about the same please.
Before the release of the Specialized profile feature, I wrote my profile to fill one specific niche (one skillset).
Now after Specialized profile feature is release, I've created two profiles each focuses on two different niches.
Question is: What do I do with General profile? Do I rewrite it to accomodate to skiils? Will that affect my visibility in searches? Wouldn't that violate long standing rule to specialize on just single niche?
Relevant and valid question, Elaman. I flagged your post to draw a moderator's attention to it. Hopefully you will get a direct and informative answer. And one that the rest of will learn from....
