Hello Mary,


To post a job, you will need a client account. You can be a freelancer and a client using the account. Please read this article for more information. Once you created a client account, you may also read this helpful article about posting a job. Thank you!

Hi Jean, 

Please know that the options have been updated since this thread has been posted. To create a client account, please see the steps below: 

  1. Click the Account Menu and choose Settings.
  2. Go to Settings > My Teams and choose the Create New Account at the bottom.
  3. Choose New Client Account.
  4. Once set up, use the Account Menu at the top-right of your screen to switch between using Upwork as a client, freelancer, or agency.

I never get the option for Create a Company when logged in. I am a freelancer who needs to hire for graphic work for my website and marketing materials.

Hi Trina,


To create a Client account on your existing account, please go to your account settings and select My Teams tab on the left. Once you do, please select Create New Account button and you should be able to add a client account to your existing account. You'll then be able to easily switch between the two accounts under the same login and hire freelancers. Check out this help article for more information.


Additionally, please check out this thread and these helpful resources to give you an idea on how to get started as a new Client. Please choose the closest category in posting the project you wish to post. Define your project with details like goals, deliverables, deadlines, and budget so freelancers can submit competitive proposals. You can also search for qualified freelancers and invite them to submit proposals.


If you need further assistance, please let us know.
