Profile question

Hi guys,

I hope someone will be able to help me...

My profile shows as 95% complete - in order to get that 5% I need to add a certification (not sure if that's the case only with my profile, or in general)

The thing is - from the drop down menu, the only thing that would be suitable for me is Adobe Certified Expert - and I'm too checp to pay for that one, lol.

Way back when I started (almost 20 years ago) - I did have some certifications from (back then) certified Adobe training school (Illustrator and Photoshop). Needless to say - I moved several times after that, have no idea where they ended up. I checked - the school doesn't exist anymore, either.

Does that mean I'm stuck with 95% complete profile forever?


thanks in advance,

Hi Sanja!


We suggested certifications as one way to get to 100%, but there are others.


Here are some options in case any are relevant to you:

-add addtional skills (if you have less than 10)

-add additional work history

-add additional education history

-take another skill test

-add an additional portfolio item


Do any of these work for you?

Let us know.

Hi Katrina,

Thank you very much for your helpful advice. I've uploaded more items, added work history (I was a bit lazy to add everything the first time around) and I'm now at 100%


Thanks again!

what if your account was 100% and now is 95% what do I do then?

Max, it's a bug so you have to wait until it's fixed. You can read about it here:
