Hi

 

I have a project to post or contact some freelancers. I have no option to do either. I have setup my profile as a freelancer. Can i post a project on this profile?

Hi Igenie,

 

If you would like to hire freelancers for your projects you will need to open a client profile. To do this go to Settings > My Teams > Create a New Account. Once your client profile is set up, you will be able to post jobs and invite freelancers to apply on your job.

You are a contractor, that is why you are unable to post jobs. If you want to hire some one on odesk, you need to create a client account, and add a valid billing method.

you can create separate account as a freelancer. Upwork not allow both activities from 1 account.

Wrong. In fact the opposite is true. You are NOT allowed to create a separate account, that could even get you banned. You can add a freelancer profile to your Client account or vice versa.

Did you even read the other posts in this thread?

 

No, you can't create separate accounts. You have to add a client account to your freelancer account as has been explained in detail above.

You should check out the thread where the guy made a second account and got banned for NO REASON.

Whether we like it or not, Upwork DOES use the word "account" loosely and in various ways.

 

Upwork Help documentation refers to creating new accounts in order to act as a client. When I personally started acting as a client, an Upwork Customer representative told me to create a new account.

 

So the wording currently in use is confusing. I would prefer to think of creating a client "role" or client "aspect" within one's Upwork account. But that is not the wording that currently see in use.
