Don't force us to choose a school or job, give us something useful.
Please consider changing the registration method (LinkedIn) from forcing a selection and/or naming of a job/school. Not all of us are employed. And not all of us are in school, because not all disabilities can be "reasonably accommodated." Sure, I am disabled. But that's not relevant to seeking a job unless it directly interferes with the process of a job I can't do, and I'm not here to look for a job that I can't do. I shouldn't have to label myself in a way that would make a potential employer question me or my ability. Let me select student without having to include some university or high school. I am not going to college, because college doesn't work with chronic illness.
Yes, there're online schools, but if there's one thing COVID has shown us, it's that we are hirable, we're just not the ideal candidate for jobs. I teach myself in my free time when I'm feeling well enough to be productive. Not every skill requires thousands of dollars in tuition, especially in tech fields.
When I registered, I felt frustration. And that frustration came from the fact that there wasn't an option for me to select by default, so I had to manipulate what options I did have to display the best I can. Student at Web Development looks awful, but I guess it will have to work because I don't have the option to choose "Learning $var skill."
Also, sidenote: the input area for this is incredibly small and disproportionate, with no ability to scale the size of the box. That's not enough area to properly convey a message without using extra software. While I'm sure Microsoft would be tickled by the fact I have a decent text editor, I shouldn't need to use it to better convey my voice where it isn't necessary. I might be able to afford ten dollars a month, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Otherwise I wouldn't want to find gainful employment, after decades of being able-bodied.
And if you really want to improve support for your products, make Editor work with Firefox. I'm paying for Editor, but there's a reason many people choose Firefox and open source options. They don't need or want some of the features that I, as someone passionate about writing, would like to use.
