Hello

 

I'm new to UpWork, and I don't know if my account profile was approved or not. Am I able to be accepted for positions? How do I know if I was accepted?

Welcome to Upwork. If you are able to submit proposals, it means you profile is accepted. Also, you should have received an email that your ID has been verified.

Hi everyone, 

 

I opened an upwork account a few weeks ago when I was living in the US, but moved to France since then and can't seem to update my location on my profile. There is no option to change it, unlike all the other parts of my profile (i.e. Fee, title, description, qualifications, ...).

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately I have the same problem. I accidentally chose a wrong country my misclicking and now I can't complete my profile. I'd need the country to be changed to Finland.

Hi Denis,

 

I'm sure if you raise a ticket with Upwork, they will help you straighten things out.

 

I'm based in the UK, and most of my clients are in the States, so don't worry about being based in the UK. That's the whole point of freelancing, the world is your clientbase. But you need to be honest and say you are based in the UK. Hopefully, Upwork will help you out with this. As it stands, your profile looks bad as you say you are based in the UK and willing to move to the States but your location says States. 

 

Best wishes,

 

Louisa
