Applying for jobs

I am a lawyer. When I apply for jobs I am told I need to add my license. I have done that and it has been verified. I am given no options for moving to the next step to actually apply. I keep getting a add your license screen, yet I see my license verification. Any suggestions?

@rknechtel I'm seeing that you have a few new leads to respond to as well as the option to quote on some projects in the Opportunities section. Neither are showing me a prompt about adding licensing, and I see that your profile does have a verified license included. Can you possibly add a screenshot via desktop to show us where exactly you're running into this? If not you may want to contact support

Give me a 'Kudo' if you find this post helpful or mark 'Best Answer' if it answers your question.

@rknechtel thank you for those screenshots. It looks like your license is for Michigan. For jobs in Florida, we require a license in that state to respond to certain services. Because this job in particular is in Florida, you will need to have a license in Florida in order to quote on this job.

I understand your position. As a point of reference: USPTO trademark registration is a matter of federal law. An attorney licensed in any state and competent in trademark law can assist no matter the state of residence of the client. In my almost 30 year career I estimate that less than 10 percent of my clients have been from Michigan. I have a national IP practice.

After some reflection, partially based upon our message exchange today, and considering my practice, I do not think Thumbtack is right for me. Thank you for letting me join.
