Need guidance on profiles management

Hi, I just had my 2 profiles verified but I am told that it is not OK to have 2 profiles. I actually am a writer as well as a video editor so I created 2 accounts since these 2 are completely different. While on one I am an expert, the other I am mid-level experienced person trying to figure out if this is something I can work for earning money. Could you please help me here. I do not want to go against the rules as I wasn't aware!

Hi Geetha,


Opening more than one account is a violation of our TOS, freelancers are allowed to have only one account. I would strongly recommend closing one of your accounts as soon as possible. 
But rest assured, you can still showcase your experiences and skills on one profile with specialized profiles. 

With a specialized profile, you can tailor your unique skills to your audience on Upwork and create variations of your profile that showcase your experience within specific categories. To learn more about this, check out this Help Article. Thank you.
