I don't know whether I am writing in the right place, so please correct me if I am wrong.
I would like to suggest you one change in the job categories:
Current status: Accounting and Financial Analysis are part of the Accounting and Consulting category. There is only one sub-category related to Financial Analysis, i.e. Financial Planning.
Proposal: Split this into 2 categories: 1 - Accounting; 2 - Financial Analysis. The thing is that these two topics are closely related but essentially different. An Accountant knows the basics of Financial Analysis but cannot do it in an efficient manner like a professional Financial Analyst. The opposite is also valid, i.e. the Financial Analyst knows the basics of accounting but cannot be a bookkeeper to somebody.
Under Accounting, there can be bookkeeping, consulting, tax consultants etc...
Under Financial Analysis, there could be Financial Analysis, Financial Planning, Financial Modelling, Valuation, Consulting, Other.
Effects: Client could better find the freelancer they are searching for. Freelancers can find the jobs that better suits their skills.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Since such changes involve some major restructuring, it is not something likely to be implemented soon. However, the team will keep it in mind for future redesigns.
