Hi Miroslav B..!


You can search by following format in search bar on Find Work page

i.e if you want to search 2 tags(skills required for a job), php and mysql, you can write in the following manner


(php OR mysql)


if you need more tags you can also add 


(php OR mysql OR tag3 OR tag4 OR tag5)

Hi Miroslav, 

You can click on "Advanced Search," and then input "#c, MSSQL" in "All of these words" so that search results that have that in their job post will appear.

Hi there, it seems that the option to search by "Skill" within advanced search is no longer available (see screenshot attached).


How can I search for freelancers with a specific Skill, e.g. "Principle"


Thank you

Hi Seva,


Once you start typing Principle on the search bar a drop down menu will be showed where you can select the skill to search freelancers for. Once you`ve searched for this skill you can also use the advanced search option or our filters to further refine your search.  Thank you.

I'd just also like to add that you can search for a certain skill using this format in the search field


skills:name of the skill


Here is an example of a search like that.

Might it not be considered a flaw in the interface if:

  • Upwork's intial, logical, and intuitive response is incorrect
  • Two additional responses are required to explain the illogical and/or unintuitive correct answer(s)?

Hi Michael,


To clarify, the OP was referring to the job search (on freelancer side) and Seva posted about freelancer search (on the client side.) The options for advanced searches for job and freelancer search are different. Therefore, our replies were different. Avery's response is correct and is referring to job search.
