Hi Michael and Pandora,

 

As Lena noted in the original announcement, when a specialized profile is about Design and Creative work, the portfolio will be more visible.

Thanks Valeria, for some reason that info just whooshed right by me.

 

Also, I think this is a bad decision. Who is Upwork to tell us if our Portfolio is important to us or not. I can personally say that my Portfolio has gotten me jobs, and that I worked very hard to develop those materials.  And no, for the record, I do not offer Creative services for my clients, at least in the way the word is intended here.

 

I also really really hate that the very awesome (but now ignored) service package section is horribly located. You might as well have not even given us this feature.

I don't think it a good idea. I am a game developer and I want to show my portfolio at the top as well but I am not in design and creative field I am more on a developer side.

My observation too....and it's a better design for me - having suffered the effects of a huge JSS drop!

So right, Christine! And what is the purpose of the large map on the left side of the screen? I have never personally met with a client. My location is stated at the top of the page. Isn't that enough? When someone posts a job, there is no map to show his or her location!

So if you have portfolio items for a specialized profile, they will automatically show up in your General profile?

 

And what about those of us that aren't in design or creative fields who don't use a portfolio? Will this be just a big blank space? 

 

What fields did you test this profile with? I'm getting really tired of Upwork deciding what my business advertising should look like without even asking for feedback before you decide to start rolling things out.  Share the test results with us  if they were so great.

Hi everyone,

 

This new layout should be rolling out this week, possibly today. 

 

If you don't have a portfolio, your overview would be moved up, displaying under your profile title instead. There will be no blank space.
