Specialize profile disappeared

I created a main profile, and then a specialized profile.  If I did this right (I'm new to Upwork), I made both visible.

 

But now I can't find my specialized profile.  I only see my main profile.  I don't know how to access the specialized to make any changes or see what is its status.

 

So I would appreciate someone to clarify this for me.

 

Thanks so much

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Thanks so much for sticking with me.  Yes I see it now.  All good.

 

I appreciate the help for the newby.

Here's what I see.

You should be able to tap on the Management Consulting and then make any edits.

 

Hi Woodrow

 

But when I do this, I only see my main profile, and not the specialized profile.

 

Does that mean it wasn't retained and I have to build it again?

Hello Jeff!

 

Both are there meaning you did publish the Management Consulting successfully. You can only see one at a time. Just toggle back and forth.

 

When I click on your "ALL WORK" I see this 

Vendor Management and Selection Expert | Implementation Strategist

 

When I click on your "Management Consulting" I see this

Change Management Expert | Implementation Strategist

 

When you're submitting proposals for jobs, Upwork will make a profile recommendation a freelancer can use instead of their "ALL WORK."

 

For instance, when I'm submitting proposals for copywriting projects, Upwork recommends I use my Copywriting profile.

Thanks so much for sticking with me.  Yes I see it now.  All good.

No Worries!

 

It's all good!

 

A word to the wise, as a newbie to the platform, scammers do run rampant here, so protect yourself.

 

If it sounds suspicious, looks suspicious, then be very cautious because you might be getting scammed. 

 

I would highly recommend getting very familiar with Upwork's knowledge base. 

 

To get you started off on the right foot, start with Upwork's Legal Center. Here's that link:

 

https://www.upwork.com/legal#terms

 

It will be very time-consuming to read through.

 

However, you will dodge many pitfalls newbies face on the platform who choose not to study all the ins and outs of the platform.

 

Best of luck to you!
