I am interested in a job in the sports field which appears on the job board. The client said that it was necessary to have specialisation in sports and recreation to be able to bid for this job. As I don't have specialisation in sports (even though I have translated a lot of World Cup materials, for example) I removed another specialisation that has never materialised in job terms to include sports.

I am interested in a job in the sports field which appears on the job board. The client said that it was necessary to have specialisation in sports and recreation to be able to bid for this job. As I don't have specialisation in sports (even though I have translated a lot of World Cup materials, for example) I removed another specialisation that has never materialised in job terms to include sports. However, the option Sports/Recreation is not listed on the available choices of specialisation on my profile. I do have it listed among my interests but apparently this is not enough for the client. (I was not allowed to include specialisation in sports when I opened the profile due to the limit on the number of specialisations).

I am now within the permitted limit for specialisation, so why does sports and recreation not appear in the list of available specialisations? And what can I do as their e-mail is not informed?

Remove it from your "interests".
