If you're in school you can note that and it will allow you to complete your profile. I have a friend on here who is in school and because she's going for a degree she put that in. But if you haven't attended college or are not attending you cannot complete the profile. I've tried, many times in different ways putting different things in to get past it. There is no possible way to complete it without some kind of college in the profile. They discriminate against you plain and simple if you cannot attend college.

Hi Victoria,

 

There are many ways to complete your profile. The website may suggest you add a degree, but this is not required.

 

I hope this helps!

Well, this is my second day here on this platform. So far, everything is okay, except for the fact that I'm yet to get any jobs😔 despite my numerous enticing 😁😋 proposals. If someone can help, I'd gladly accept it. Thanks a bunch!

Well if there's a way someone needs to tell people how to do it because I've tried and tried, I even emailed them for help and got zero response. I cannot get past the part where it asks you to put in college stuff. Sorry, but it doesn't work. Everyone can keep saying it does, but it doesn't.

Hi Victoria,

 

Are you experiencing a technical problem when trying to complete your profile? In the profile completion article, it defines many different options for reaching 100% completion. Education is not required.

But you are a writer, I woild hope you could come up with something.

School of hard knocks? university of real life experience? the womb institute?

or perhaps just pit your high school experience?

If you have a portfolio showcasing your work and you write compelling proposals it shouldnt be a huge hurdle to get past.

Alternately, make something modest up. No one is asking for transcripts.

This is so true. it seems as if you don't have a degree, you are not treated with respect. ive been on other Freelancing platforms and this one is, by far, the most difficult and complex of them all.

Hello, Mike

First you need to be logged into your client account as well as a freelancer account. In order to be able to view proposals that are sent to your job by freelancers. It doesn't look like the account you're currently logged into and used to publish this post is the correct one.

Hi Mohsin,

 

You do not need a freelancer account in order to post jobs or view the proposals. This is all done from the client context. Are you able to elaborate on the issue you faced?
