Add Education to Your Freelancer Profile

The Education section lets you add any degrees or diplomas you have earned. If you studied a subject but didn't graduate, feel free to include that as well. To add your education:

  1. Go to Find Work > Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the Education section and click the Add button
  3. Enter a school, dates attended, degree, area of study, and description.
  4. Click the Save button or, if you want to enter more, click the Save and Add More button.

When adding a degree, type the first few letters (such as "B" or "Bach" for Bachelor of Science/B.S.) and then choose from the list of matches. You must choose from the standardized list, but if you can't find the option you need, select Other and name the degree in your description.

When adding your education, you can include a brief summary of your coursework at the educational institution. Feel free to add any clubs, groups, or societies that were part of your experience and include any awards you received, your grade point average, and/or class ranking (i.e., Magna Cum Laude).
