Hi - I recently registered as a freelancer but my account says I am 'UK only'. I want my profile to reach globally. Any ideas how I do this?

Especially when you don't actually live in the UK...

The first thing you need to do is change your location to where you actually are. That will also immediately resolve the "UK only" thing.

I'll flag your post to see if a moderator can help and get your location set to Spain Smiley Happy

I'm in the UK but am a dual national and able to work in the US as well.  How can I get this sorted?  Can't seem to find anything that lets me search globally....

Thanks

Hi Ellen,

 

Just to clarify, are you referring to searching for jobs that are UK or US only? If that's the case, note that this is a location preference set by the client, which means that they likely prefer for you to be actually located in the US or the UK to be considered for their project. Since you're currently confirmed to be in the UK, you will be able to search for jobs that have that location preference and the clients will be able to see that you meet that criteria. 

 

Also, I can see that you recently signed up. You may want to check out this thread Getting Started on Upwork as well as our Resource Center; where you’ll find some excellent articles and learn more about Upwork.

 

Thank you.
