Add custom skills that is not available in list

I am trying to add a new skill but it does not show in the skills section.

It told me to add suggestions, I did multiple times but unfortunately, it is not showing.

I create a ticket as well but till now no update from the Upwork side.


Please suggest.

Hi Muhammad,


When adding skills, be sure to use the correct spelling in English. If you are having trouble finding your skill among the options, try some synonyms. For example, "fax" instead of "facsimile." Or be a little less specific. For example, try "technical documentation" instead of "electronics manual creation." Please note we have purposefully excluded skills that you can't sell in our marketplace, such as "dog groomer" or "ninja."


If in case you're still having difficulties adding two more skills to your profile, feel free to communicate with our team through this support ticket for further assistance.

Thanks for reply
I want to add the below skill, I see this in other users' profile
QA automation
I already created a ticket for that but still no reply from the support team.
That's why I posted here the same question.
Please let me know if you can help


Hi Muhammad,


Thank you for your message. You will have an option to suggest new skills in case your skills are not listed. Feel free to use suggest skills option so that our team can review your suggestions.


Thank you,



I already suggest a skill; it has been almost 1 week and still no response from Upwork.
Looking forward to hearing from them.
