I had this problem as well. I figured out once you create it, you have to go through view extra steps.
Profile Settings > Specialized Profiles > Edit (which will automatically take you to skills to add for that specialty) > back > delete
It took me a minute but once it's a draft you should be able to delete it after clicking back! I hope this helps!
Hi Giulia, and Sagar,
The option to delete a Specialized Profile is no longer available unless a freelancer has at least one other Specialized Profile.
Also, the bad thing I have observed is that the Upwork showcase specializes profile in the search. I made $70k using a general profile and in search, it shows $0k for specializes profile. No one is going to hire me, bro.
I accidentally added a specialized profile and somehow can't delete it. I've done research and supposedly you can delete it under profile settings> specialized profile> ... > delete but I can't seem to find it under the options. It looks unprofessional because it's basically just a duplicate and I don't really want 2 profiles, Is there any other way to remove the profile?
Attached file for screenshot of the problem.
Hi, I just created my new upwork profile today. But, I am not able to delete the specialized profile I created. I selected the "Manage Specialized Profiles" section. Then, clicked the drop down menu next to the specialized profile. VIEW, EDIT and SWITCH SPECIALITY appeared in the drop down menu, but not DELETE. Have been trying to figure this out for the last couple of hours, please see the attached screen shot.
Please note that the option to delete a Specialized Profile is no longer available unless a freelancer has at least one other Specialized Profile.
