I am stuck as to what to upload for my portflio. I am a CPA and am looking for accounting and financial work. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Mark,

When fielding questions like this, I'll often encourage new freelancers to check out what others in their field are already doing. For example, I did this search for freelancers using the keyword, "accountant" and filtered it to only show those with a Job Success Score of 90% or higher. This means I'm looking at freelancers with some experience in this area of work. Then, you can check out their profiles to see what they've included in their portfolios, giving you some ideas of what you might want to include in your own.


A couple of additional thoughts:

  1. Don't copy from someone else's profile. Using someone else's portfolio items or verbiage (from their Overview sections, etc.) is against our policy.
  2. Look at those freelancers who are Top Rated since they have a proven track record of success on Upwork.

Do you really think that clients would expect an accountant to have a portfolio?

I doubt they would be looking for a portfolio to do Accounting. Just mention your schooling and certificates under school and certificates.

I guess testimonials from previous clients would be the closest thing to a "portfolio" for an accountant.
