Subject says it all, but I'll be more verbose for support purposes.
I am not a freelancer.
I want to hire a freelancer.
I've read about posting a job on Upwork, but I don't have any options to do so.
I can search for a freelancer, but I have no way to contact them (although the search options are far too limited for my needs).
I'm about to call it quits and ask my boss if we can use a different service, one that allows me to post jobs, perform detailed searches...and all of the other administrative goodness that goes along with actually hiring someone to do a job.
Today marks my 3rd day of trying to do something that I thought would be somewhat simple and straighforward. Why is it so difficult to get Upwork working?

I see that you have recently been given admin permissions for another client-company account. You can now switch to that account in the drop-down menu that shows when you click on your name in the upper-right corner. You will see an option to post a job there:
