Hi ,

 

I am asked by Upwork to link my Upwork profile/account with a social media account. But from the options available I don't find a linkedin button. Is it possible to link my Upwork profile with my Linkedin Profile? I have found questions from people who wished to do the other way round from Linkedin to Upwork. Thank you so much. Warmest.

Hi Iman,

 

An option to link a LinkedIn profile isn't available anymore. Linked accounts have been used historically by our system to understand different aspects of your professional background. You can still share that information via the profile set up itself and other linked accounts.

Thank you dear Valeria for your swift response. However I couldnt quite get the second half of your answer "You can still share that information via the profile set up itself". Could you kindly elaborate? You mean I could share my Linkedin Link on my profile for example? With my warmest regards. Iman

You can't do that.

 

Your profile can be suspended if you include your LinkedIn link on your profile page.

Ok I got it! So that means, I could include aspects of my Linkedin profile into my Upwork profile, but there are possibilities of linking both accounts together? Thank you very much for your swift response. With my warmest regards. Iman

Iman,

 

As Preston clarified, you can't add a link to your LinkedIn profile or any other pages that contain your contact information to your profile. You can add more information to your profile about your skills and experience instead or link accounts that are currently available under Profile Settings.

I was advised to remove the LinkedIn link. Initially they could allow but not anymore.
