How can I open a client account?

Do I have to install an new account as a client? Or can I use the data from my freelancer accout?

You must use your existing freelancer/contractor account,

 

You will activate a client profile within your current, already established freelancer account.

 

You must never create a second account on Upwork.

Hi Margarete,

 

Go to your settings, then scroll down, where you find the following on the bottom left:

Thank you for the precise explanation. I was aware that I must not open a second account but was not sure if this is also relevant if my alter ego wants to establish a client profile.

Hi Petra,

Has how this worked changed, I assume it has over this period of time, I am a long-time freelancer and wish to post a project to hire another freelancer to take on some task for me.

 

I cannot for the life of me find how to post a job, if I click the get started under new projects, it keeps taking me to my freelancer landing page (my job search).

 

Here are the choices I see on my setting tabs.

 

Thanks Graham 

Hi Graham,

 

Please go to Settings > My Teams > Create a New Account and you will be able to open a client account. If you have any additional questions let me know. Thank you.
