How are skills displayed on a Freelancer Profile page?

As a Freelancer, you have the option of displaying skills on your profile. 

For team accounts, the self-assessment score would be determined by the owner of the account.   

Each Freelancer Membership level has a maximum number of skills that can be displayed on your profile. The Basic account level allows 10 skills to be displayed, while the Individual membership account offers 15 skills, the Small Business provides 20 and Large Business displays up to 25 skills. 

You can set the priority order for your skills to be displayed.  If you don’t arrange the priority order then all skills will be shown in alphabetical order. 

To set the display order of your skills, log in to your Elance account and follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Find Work tab in the top navigation bar.
  2. Next, click on the Freelancer Profile link.
  3. Click Edit next to the skill section of your profile overview page.
  4. Drag and drop the skills to the order you want them displayed publicly.
