I'm a registered marketing freelancer who needs to hire (client) an illustrator; how do I do that?

When I log in to Upwork, I'm shown available jobs that might be of interest to me as a marketing professional. I need to HIRE an illustrator for a marketing project but I can't figure out how to get out of the freelancer-for-hire mode and into the hiring-a-freelancer mode in Upwork. Can someone help me?

Hi Darlis,


I just checked your account and I can see that you have created a freelancer account. You need to have a client account in order to post a job and hire a freelancer for your project. You can be a client and a freelancer using the same account.  Please check out this help article for more information on how to create a client account on your existing account.


Also, please check this help article for more information on how to post a job. You can check some helpful resources to give you an idea about how to get started as a client. 


Let us know if you need any further assistance.
