Keeping your availability updated can help you to access the most relevant jobs and helps you avoid the frustration of dealing with invitations when you're not looking for more work. You may want to take a moment to update your availability when you accept new work, a contract ends, or your life outside Upwork gets too busy.

To set your availability

  • Go to Find Work
  • Click the ✎ icon next to Availability in the My Profile panel
  • If available, set hours per week you can accept
  • If not available, set an available on date (best estimate)
