I have been trying to set up my profile page, and the upwork site keeps telling me to add at least one skill. And when I do it doesnt work.  I have tried 1, 2, 3 ++ skills and the results are the same.  I can not get past the profile process.  what is going on here.

With the skills, they apparently have a pre-approved list of skills. If you type out a couple of letters in the skill (e.g. "of" for "office,") the skill will pop up and you will be able to click to add it.

Hi Richard, 


Thanks for reaching out! Can you please share some more details and screenshots about the error message you are running into? Are you unable to save additional skills or unable to move on from the step where you have already added skills?

Hi Richard,


Looks like you were able to complete skills section of your profile creation. Once all the fields are completed, click Review Application at the bottom of the page. Our team will reach out to you with the results within 24 hours. Thank you.
