Want to change my profile niche

I have been a part of upwork since 2019 and when I joined upwork I was not expert in my field i.e Financial planning, Bookkeeping, Financial models making and other similar stuff.
Now I have 3 years of experience and I feel Very confident about my work. I have also completed my CFA certification.
Basically i started my upwork account as a data entry freelancer like lead generation, internet research etc.

Now I want to change my profile to work as a professional financial analyst. so, the question is that can i do so? can i change my profile to my own profession niche? Does upwork allow that?

Hi Joanne, Thanks for your response. I wanted to know whether I can just simply change my current profile or do I have the only option to make a specialized profile?

Hi Asma,


Yes, you can also edit your profile. Most information on your freelancer profile can be edited by going to Find Work  Profile. Each section has an Edit or Add button. For additional information on editing specific profile sections, check out:
