I have two profiles. 

 

When I tried to use the second profile for a bid, I couldn't figure out how to use it for that particular job. Thanks in advance for the help.

Delete one real quick, it is not allowed to have 2 profiles.

My understanding is that I have the opportunity to use a variation of my
Profile for different bid requests. I created this variation in Upwork. I
don't think it's considered another profile but rather a different way to
address a specific specialty.
Right?

Absolutely right! I think Martina meant that you are not allowed to have two Upwork accounts.

 

ETA: I can't answer your question, as I haven't yet separated my skills, so I have flagged your question to get a mod's response, perhaps another member will answer in the meantime.

Do you know when I can choose the second version?

Hi Rob,

 

When you submit a proposal for a job, you won't be able to choose which profile to submit with your proposal. The profile that is most relevant to the job requirements will automatically be shown with your proposal. Your general profile and any other specialized profiles you have will still be visible to the client when they view your proposal and your profile details.

 

Thank you.

Perfect. That's all I need to know. I'm happy that Updork can cross
reference the two profiles by keywords. Pretty slick. Thank you,

Ah, my bad. Yes I thought you meant different accounts which many people don't know that they shouldn't have.
