For example, I want to find freelancers containing skill tag of "SQL Server". How to do? Currently I can only search based on title, or make a general search.
I would like to direct your attention to this article which shares best practices on how to do your search in the Upwork marketplace. Please check the FAQs, especially the section "How does search work? What are the best practices?" for more information.
I hope this helps!
I read the article you recommended. However, it still does not answer my question, i.e., Search for a specific skill. I can search based on category, but not a skill search.
Arjay here stepping in for Avery. Please note that Freelancers need to select a category that is most relevant to their expertise. Within each category, there are Specialities and skills.
Upwork offers the categories found in this help article to make sure you connect with the right people and projects. We’re always updating the skills listed on Upwork to reflect the current trends and talents, so check back often to see if your category has changed. These updates improve our site’s search and matching capabilities so we are constantly working to evaluate and update the skills listed on Upwork to reflect the current trends and talents that freelancers offer.
Hey Alan, Upwork's system makes a best match on the keyword type which may or may not be included in the Freelancers Skills. It's usually not an exact match. Try using different similar keywords to have a better chance of viewing the "right" Freelancers. Also use the left nav bar for searching such as USA only or other features. Thanks!
