We launched a test that allows freelancers to link outside accounts to their Upwork profile. Starting February 20, half of all freelancers can add their GitHub and Stack Overflow accounts to their profile. This test feature helps freelancers build their reputation on Upwork by providing another opportunity to showcase their past work.
When freelancers see a banner at the top of their profile page that says Introducing the new GitHub Profile integration, they can select View linked accounts.
After freelancers add the links to their GitHub and Stack Overflow accounts, a notice will appear that says New profile integration, which asks freelancers to acknowledge that these accounts will be visible to others on their Upwork profile.
After selecting Got it!, freelancers will see their linked GitHub and Stack Overflow accounts on the left side of their profile page.
