I've selected my city from the drop-down menu but message "Please select a city from the list" remains and I am unable to complete my profile.

I am using upwork since past few days. I am able to send proposals and also able to give tests.

I have got a rising talent badge also, but still, I am confused a bit that whether my profile is approved or not.

Hi Naman,


Are you wondering why you can't work as an independent freelancer? If yes, that is because you`re an exclusive member of your agency. 

Exclusive members can work only on contracts from the agency, if you would like to work as an independent freelancer the agency owner will need to change your status to Non-Exclusive member. Thank you.

The user interface on the page where you create your profile is, frankly, lousy. It needs a lot of refinement, it's buggy too.

If you are hitting the "review" button and essentially nothing happens, here's the trick.

When the page asks you what city you are in you HAVE to select it from the drop down menu. Start typing your city in the field and you should see a list of suggestions pop down below. Select your city. 

Then when you hit the review button it should work and you will be able to submit your profile.
