It's 8 months since Arnold's post, and Northwestern University STILL isn't in the Education menu. You can select Northwestern College, a tiny school in Iowa, but not one of the Big Ten schools?
Also, I'm not able to just enter Northwestern University into the field -- it's requiring me to select something from the menu. Please fix this!
Our team is working on providing a permanent solution with having an updated list of all universities and colleges in the world. In the meantime, note that you can type Northwestern University in the field and are not required to select one of the options from the drop-down menu. Please go ahead with completing your profile and let us know if you have any feedback or questions.
Hi. I'm trying to put my educational institution into Upwork as well and those institutions, which are popular institutions, are not in the dropdown. Why wouldn't Upwork just make it a free form field? Thanks.
Thank you for your feedback Andrew, I will share it with our product managers.
In the mean time you can add your university name in one of the optional fields and it will be listed in under your Education section.
I'm happy to inform you all that Dates Attended are now an Optional field in the Education information. You won't be required to add that information when adding education information to your profile and can edit your existing education information to remove the dates. We appreciate everybody's feedback and participation.
I'm glad to know the Dates Attended information is now optional (as it actually says on the form). However, I have tried everthing I can think of to remove those dates from my original profile, but I am not allowed to do it. Instead, I just am supposed to choose years from the drop-down menu, when I don't want the years to appear at all. Very, very frustrating, as I am in agreement that this could cause some age discrimation. Please help! And thank you.
