Hello Community,

 

Have a question.  The answer may be here, and I'm just wording my question incorrectly.  So, I'm hoping someone here can provide a reply.

 

I have 15+ years as an entrepeneur, with wide and varied experience.  I have a website with all that information on it as a resume / work experience.

 

Is it OK to add my website link to proposals so potential employers can review the examples of my work? This is NOT with the intent of taking work off Upwork.  My website refers people back to Upwork to complete the hiring process.

 

Thanks for replies.

You can include it in your job proposals but not in profile overview.

Hi, I actually noticed this photogragher add her website as well as her social media links to her profile... how does that work if you can not add it to your profile and only proposals?

Hi Aurora,

Adding social media accounts are allowed to be added on one's profile on Upwork. The purpose for linking your social media accounts is so our system can gather more information about your skills and experience, and use that information for features like job recommendations. Let us know if we may be of further assistance.

Why can't I add my portfolio? How are people going to know if I'm any good if they can't see my work?

Hi Danny,

 

Is there an error message when you tried to add your portfolio items?

When I try to add a link to my portfolio it says something along the lines of “ no outside links can be added”.

Hi Danny,

 

Like the rest of your profile, posting contact information isn’t allowed in your portfolio. That means that links added can’t include your email address, phone number, or chat ID. Please check this help article for more information.

 

Thank you!

I believe that it's okay as long as you cannot be contacted directly through the website.
