2020, 04/23 - Update to Specialties and Skills

From time to time, we evaluate and update the skills listed on Upwork to reflect the current trends and talents that freelancers offer. These updates improve our site’s search and matching capabilities, so it’s important that they’re kept up-to-date.

Often, these updates involve simple renaming, merging, and corrections to streamline the user experience. You may not even notice them! However, they improve our metadata and result in clearer information, improved organization, and more accurate listings in our marketplace and your job searches.

For example:

  • If you are a client, specialties and skills help categorize your job post and match your project with the talent you need
  • If you are a freelancer, specialties and skills help you market your talents and create specialized profiles that accurately reflect your expertise

In this particular update, we’ve added a COVID-19 attribute to Writing Topics in Content Writing, Ghostwriting, Copywriting to help identify this  timely topic.

We have automatically updated related categories, job filters and feeds, existing profiles, and job posts with any applicable changes.

Pro tip: Top freelancers tell us they frequently check the skills listed on their profile to make sure they are accurate and current. They also review their job search filters to keep opportunities up-to-date.
