What to put in the "Employment History" section of my profile?

The only work experience I have that's relevant to my Upwork skills were jobs that I've been hired for through Upwork. So should I list them in the "Employment History" part of my profile or would it be redundant since those jobs are already listed in the "Work History and Feedback" part? Thanks everyone.

Employment History is just that, so by all means include history that may not be strictly relevant to the services you offer here. You'll never know when non-relevant experiences become super relevant when a client happens to need someone from that industry or with familiarity of a particular field.

 

You can summarize what you have been doing as a Freelancer as " 2010 - Present(for example) - Self Employed Freeelance Whatever" with a short summary then add your non-relevant employment history like you would in a resume.
