Hi,

 

I Have recenlty joined upwork and very new to this.  Although I am a freelancer myself I need help with a personal project of my own.  Do I need to create another account?  Or can I reach out to other freelancers from my freelancer account?

Hello,


You can create a client account and create a job post to reach freelancers.

Thanks Kanan.  So i would have 2 separate accounts one as freelancer and one as a client.

 

I thought I could do it via my freelancer account,

You can, in fact you can’t have 2 separate accounts. You set up your client account from your freelancer account and then you can switch from freelancer mode to client mode.

As you see, it is quite easy to switch to client account and hire freelancers to help. 

Also, as i am aware, it is not possible to connect to freelancers via freelancer account if none of the clients added other freelancer to your conversation. I also experienced one of my clients added other freelancer to convo and we had a discussion.

Do **NOT** create a new account. You have to add a client profile to your existing freelancer account.

If you're a freelancer now, but would like to hire others as a client

  1. Go to Settings  My Teams and choose the Create New Account button at the bottom.
  2. Choose New Client Account
  3. 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

This is entirely inappropriate behaviour on the forum!

Just think about all of the freelancers who pay for connects and will be sending proposals to her job, it is not fair to them.
