Selected wrong account type at registration

I want to be a freelancer, and accidentally selected project during signup. How do I switch my account from client to Freelancer?


Hi Shawn,


You can be a freelancer, agency, and a client on Upwork. You will use the same account to log in to Upwork but will have separate user profiles. You will be able to easily switch between them as needed.


To create your freelancer account please follow next steps.


  • Go to Settings  My Info.
  • Click the Create New Account link at the bottom
  • Select New Freelancer Account
  • 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

Feel free to follow up if you need further assistance. Thank you for your patience.
