Why hasn't Upwork gotten back to me about my added certificate request?

Hi there,

 

I have been trying to add a certificate to my profile repeatedly for a while now. The certificate I am trying to add is the Certified Associate in Project Management certificate (awarded by the Project Management Institute). I realize that it is not one of the current options, but Upwork does allow the option to upload different certificates (if approved), so I was wondering why my approval application was never responded to, and why.

 

Here is my certificate proof by the way: **Edited for community guidelines**

I also have the screenshot of the actual certificate too.

 

Thank you so much for your time!

 

Best,

Herman

Hi Herman,

 

Currently, only certifications listed here can be validated and added to the Certification section of the profile. The team is working to expand the list but we don't have any ETA for when specific certifications will be added. In the meantime, you can still use the Portfolio or the Overview sections of your profile to highlight your certifications, making sure to remove any direct contact information.

 

Thank you!

Okay thank you. Quick follow-up then, does that mean the only way to achieve a full 100% completed profile would be to upload one of those validated certificates, then? Thanks again!

Best,
Herman

Hi Herman,

 

There are many ways to get to 100%, but some items are required. For more information, please check out this article from the Upwork Help page.
