Expanding Specialized Profiles for Freelancers

Hi Elaman,


Thanks for reaching out. Unlike a general profile, a specialized profile will allow you to create a separate title and overview, as well as set a different rate. It will also let you go into more detail about the type of skills you do work in. For example, for mobile development: programming languages, types of devices you develop on, which categories of apps you’ve worked on, etc. You can keep your general profile the way it is or update it – it's up to you. When a client uses the search function to search for freelancers we will show them your most relevant profile, whether it's your general profile or your specialized one.

Just to make sure - all your agency members that you assign work to must have their own upwork profiles. You mention a team of 10 people, so there should be 10 people under your agency. You can't have an agency for yourself only.

I currently have specialized profiles for Captioning/Transcription and Copy Editing/Proofreading.  I'd like to separate captioning from transcription since they are two different services and have different workflows.


Also, I'm looking to add a research service and cannot create a specialized profile.  Since this thread is a year old, does Upwork plan to expand the number of specialized profiles that one can make?  Surely, most of us freelancers have a LOT of talents that clients could use.

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!
