Virtual Talent Bench List Sharing

On Upwork

Do your clients like working with you so much that they would want to share with others?

With a recent update Upwork has enabled Virtual talent bench list sharing, so the clients can now share not only individual links to freelance profiles, but entire lists of saved freelancers.

What is Virtual Talent Bench?

Upwork created Virtual talent bench almost a year ago . The feature allows clients to save freelancers in lists (for example, a list of developers, or a list of graphic designers). They can create as many lists as they like and organize freelance profiles to find them easily in the future. For example, we find the feature super useful when looking for new team members for Etcetera.

What’s new with Virtual Talent Bench List Sharing​?

Starting June 13, it is possible to send saved lists to other users or visitors of Upwork.

  1. At the top right corner there is a new button “Share list”.
  2. Clients can copy a link to the list they chose, post the list on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter.
  3. If existing Upwork clients open a shared list, they can save it as their own.
  4. If a new visitor opens the list, they can see the profiles and will be prompted to create an Upwork profile.

Possible use scenarios of Virtual Talent Bench List Sharing

For clients this new feature can be pretty helpful, for example:

  • They can save a list of freelancers they’ve worked with on previous projects and share with others later as a recommendation.

  • During hiring process in larger companies, one person can make a list of good prospect candidates and then share the list with their colleague to review and make a decision.

“This feature is step one towards providing our clients a way to collaborate with their peers in regards to sharing pre-screened talent lists,” says Product Manager Kosta A.

We are eager to see that will be step two.
