I have a Master of Industrial Design (M.I.D.) degree. It isn't an M.A. or M.F.A. in Industrial Design - this wouldn't really accurately represent my degree in name or substance. Why isn't this field editable?
Thanks for sharing your suggestion with us. I'll forward it to the team. Meanwhile, you can use "Area of Study" field to specify your degree as that field is editable.
Would it be possible for Upwork to add to their educational offerings? Is that impossible?
I've read all the workarounds - and none of them meet basic needs. Someone looking for legal help will look to see if a contractor went to law school. Can we add a JD and BS?
I checked and you should be able to select the Bachelor of Science degree. For Juris Doctor, I'll share this with the team so that they can include it in the drop-down list.
It's also possible to choose some degree types from the drop down and then write your specific title in the area of study. (The area of study is both a drop down and an editable text field, so you can write exactly what your degree was in).
Clearly this is an ongoing issue, but I'm having the same problem. Coming from New Zealand, our degrees are often called different things. I can't enter that I have a Bachelor of Nursing, or a Postgraduate Certificate, or a Postgraduate Diploma.
It would be good if there was an option that if you type in exactly what you're after, and it's not available, there is a) an option to alert Upwork so that they can see if there were common qualifications that aren't on the list, or b) there was a suggestion for how others searching for the same qualification had listed themselves.
