I cannot figure out how to change my profile from a freelancer to needing a freelancer.  I keep going around and around because I accidently signed in to be a freelancer?  Getting irritated.

Hi, 

 

I have same questions, 

 

Would I need to create totally new profile as hiring person?

Hi Muhammad Usman,

 

I've checked and you already have a client profile on your account, which you can access by clicking on your photo in the upper-right corner and selecting the second tab from the top.

 Go to "settings", which you will find in a drop-down menu near your picture on your home page (top right - you will have to give your password  again). On your settings page scroll down and on the left-hand side you will see "create a company" and then "create a client account".

I'm sorry that you found this to be frustrating. Don't feel bad. It is NOT obvious or intuitive how.


What you need to do is create a "company" profile within your existing Upwork account.

 

Click on your name in top righthand corner.

 

Show a dropdown menu. Click on "Settings"

 

Click on "Create a company" in bottom lefthand corner of screen.

 

Then click on "Create a Client Account"

Hi Kristin,

 

I see you haven't yet created a freelancer profile and that's why you're not able to create a client profile. I'll ask our team to close the account you registered so you could sign up as a client instead.

Also how do you delete a client profile when you just want to be a freelancer

Brandy,

 

Please, click on the round picture in the upper right corner and select the client account you want to close, then go to Settings and you'll find the link to close it at the bottom:
