Hi. I apologize if this question has already been asked before, but I'm fairly new to Upwork and still learning. So I noticed that a lot of clients ask to attach and/or include portfolio in the application, but I'm confused how. As far as I understand it is not allowed to include external links. Also, I already have my portfolio on my Upwork profile, so shouldn't the client be able to see it automatically? Or are there extra steps I need to take in order for the client to see my portfolio in the Cover Letter? Thank you.

We know sharing your past work is important. Therefore, you can share links to external portfolios when you submit a proposal. Note: We understand external portfolios may include contact information, it is still fine to share these, though please make sure to ask the client to only contact you via Upwork. Thank you.
We are beta testing a new way to help you stand out to clients. Now you can optionally bid additional Connects to appear in one of three promoted slots pinned to the top of clients' proposal managers.Learn More
