 Sorry for missing the reply from the upwork team, I cannot find the answer to my question. Please guide me regarding the problem. How and where can I search freelencers by their name on upwork. As I told before, I cannot find freelencer option in menu or any other search bar for finding them.

Hi Hasan,


I just checked your account and I can see that you have created a Freelancer account. You need to have a Client account in order to post a job and hire a Freelancer for your Job. You can be a Client and a Freelancer using the same account.  To create a Client account on your current account, please go to your account settings and select My Teams tab on the left. Once you do, please select Create New Account button and you should be able to add a Client account to your existing account. You'll then be able to easily switch between the two accounts under the same login and hire Freelancers. Check out this help article for more information.


You can search for specific Freelancer and once you find a Freelancer that you're looking for and who suits your project's needs, you can invite them by using Invite to Job button.


Let us know if you have any further questions!
