There is definitely no way to do this now on your own.


You can either forget about your ODesk account entirely and hope Upwork never decides to suspend you for having duplicate accounts, or you can contact customer service and ask them for consolidate you accounts. I don't know if they will do it, but nobody else can do it.

It is not possible to "consolidate" or merge 2 accounts.


One of them, most likely the new one, will have to be closed.


Catherine,  you are posting from your "old" account so you clearly have access to it. Your best bet is to close the new one entirely.


To do so all jobs need to be ended, and all active candidacies and all applications withdrawn.


After that, go to your account settings, and click on Close my account

Hi Catherine, 

I would follow Preston's advice of getting in touch with support to check about consolidating a previous account to the new one. Please contact support via this link
