Hi, I am just creating my profile and I selected "software developer" as my job choice (I was a professional software developer for years), and I put some silly text in for "Overview" and I cannot figure out how to edit this.  I've decided I'd rather do proofreading.  I've spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to remove the "software developer" skill and how to edit my "Overview" and I'm really at a loss. As a software developer myself, and one who wrote a lot of online software,  I'm very surprised that it isn't obvious how to edit this information.  Anyone care to help?  Thanks in advance!

Hi Alexis, 


To edit your profile go to your profile page and then hover your mouse over the overview you will see a small pencil Icon click on that Icon you will be able to add your overview. same for the skill when you hover your mouse over your skills you will see the small pencil Icon in the right hand side click it and add your skills.


and also I would suggest you add your own profile picture instead of the cat. your profile picture must be an actual picture of you Logos, clip-art, group pictures, and digitally-altered images not allowed. 


check out this link and  watch the Video on how to Add Your Profile Overview.



Good luck

What steps do I follow to edit/update my profile?  The steps outlined in the help feature [account menu, settings, my info] do not give an option to edit any portion of my profile.  My current profile has been approved.

Hi Jacqueline,


You should be able to go to Find Work> Profile, hover your mouse over the area you'd like to edit and click on the pencil icon that appears in order to edit your profile.
