I have found the profile page of a website designer from India who was recommended to me (after signing up with Upwork).  I cannot figurte out how to contact her with a work offer.

You currently have a freelancer profile (only?)

You need a client account to hire someone, so

1. Go to Settings > My Teams

2. Click the "Create New Account" option

3. Choose "New Client Account"

 

When you have successfully created the client account, a "Invite to job" and a "Hire" button appear when looking at the profile.

Matt:

After you add the "client" aspect to your Upwork account, keep in mind that although you need to create a job posting to invite freelancers to talk to you...  This does NOT obligate you to hire anybody.

 

This is a way of opening up a discussion. If both sides don't agree to work together, that's fine, and nobody is charged anything.
