My Profile stuck at "Add Work History"

So I have been trying to set up my Upwork account today, but I'm having some issues with completing the profile set up.

 

The sidebar states that I need to "Add Work History (+20%)", however after clicking the link it takes me to my profile. Adding work history under "Employment History" does not make this message go away and I seem to be stuck here.

 

Is this the reason the "Find Jobs" page reports that Upwork does not know enough information about me to reccomend specific jobs? Is there a way to get past the "Add Work History" step and finish my profile?

 

My profile is currently stuck at 40%.

I got stuck somewhere around there too. I took 2 tests and it went away. Not sure if you can manipulate around that, but that's what I did. Just take an easy one or something when you're awake and "thinking."

Hi Jack,

 

I checked your profile and it looks like it's currently at 60%. Your employment history and education are already there. However, it's very important that you add a profile title and overview.

 

In order to add a profile title, hover your mouse over your name and click on the pencil icon. In order to add your overview, hover your mouse over the word "Overview" and then click on the pencil icon.

Hi Harshvardhan,

 

There is usually a slight delay with the profiles updating. Alternatively, could you please try removing and adding items from your Employment history section and passing and displaying more skill tests?

 

Also, could you please edit your profile name and make sure you don't use all capital letters?
