Having a complete profile with your work history and list of skills can help a potential client learn whether you are the right person for their project.To add skills to your profile:

  1. Go to Find Work > Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the Skills section and click the Edit button (pencil icon).
  3. Start typing the name of a skill, then select the best match from the list provided. If you want to enter more skills, repeat this step for each.
  4. You can rank or order your skills by moving the tags in the editor window. This order is how they will appear in your profile.
  5. Click the Save button.

When adding your skills be sure you're using the correct spelling and naming the skill 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 directly sell in our marketplace, such as "dog groomer" or "ninja."
