"Financial Consulting" gig as a student

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls,

I recently arrived on Fiverr to try and make a little bit of side money and to get some working experience. I'm currently a student in my 3rd year of a bachelor of sciences in International Business, with a specialisation in finance, and I am from Belgium. 

As such, I wanted to open a gig to do some "intermediate" level kind of financial analysis and models. However when making my gig Fiverr asked me to declare that I have a have a proper licence to offer the services I want to offer. The thing is, now I'm not sure whether or not I actually need a licence. Can someone qualified help me with that?

I intend(ed?) to be completely up-front about the fact that I have yet to graduate and about my competences.

Thank you in advance,

Felix

Many services on Fiverr do require proof that the seller actually has the skills, experience, or, apparently, license to be able to offer that service. The reason for this, is because many new sellers have no knowledge or experience in a service they offer, and have caused harm to both the marketplace, buyer trust, and Fiverr's reputation. Fiverr wants experienced freelancers offering services here, on this site. Proof of skill is one way that they work to ensure this.

If this concerns you, perhaps it might be wise to contact Fiverr's Customer Support, and ask for their assistance and further clarification on the matter.

This is totally OK and is a great idea to pursue, Fiverr has a financial consultation section for Gigs - but of course you want to be totally transparent about everything.

In your bio, Fiverr has the option to add your qualifications - and you can select the year that you will graduate. That way, everyone will know you're yet to graduate. Also, within your Gig, you have three photos and a video that you can upload - here you can explain that you're yet to graduate. You can also find tests to complete within Fiverr to prove your legitimacy - and these will then appear on your profile. As you haven't graduated, it would be worth doing this.

I can't find any information for the requirements for financial services Gigs - but I'm very sure that they won't require you to be a graduate. If they do, you'll be contacted by customer service and the Gig may be taken down, so it's worth just clarifying this with customer service.
