As a freelancer, each membership plan includes a category. Your category allows you to submit proposals for open jobs in that category only and it is determined when you create your freelancer profile based on the skills, interests and experience you enter when first setting up your profile.
To change your current membership category, please log in to your account and follow these steps:
- Click on the username at the top of the Elance site and choose Membership from the drop-down menu.
- Click the Edit Membership link on the top right.
- From here, you can choose the category you wish to belong to going forward.
Note: Category changes only take effect at the beginning of your next billing cycle. If you have a paid membership, you can add additional categories to your membership and begin submitting proposals in that category immediately. For the 1st 60 days after registration, new freelancers will be able to change membership immediately. Click here to learn how to upgrade your membership right away.
