Thanks for reaching out to us. I checked and it seems that you created a freelancer account. For posting jobs you need to have a client's account. Please, refer to this help article for more information on how can be both a freelancer and a client on Upwork. If you want to close your freelancer's account, please follow the steps in this help article or come back here and we'll assist you further with that.
I have the same issue but unfortunately when I click "contact information" it doesn´t give me the option to create a new account. Could you assist please? Many thanks.
When I click in contact information, it goes directly to the password and secury tab.
