Is there any way to add an occupation if it is not listed in the choices google provides?

Google doesn't provide lists of "occupations" but of "categories" for GoogleMyBusiness listing.

 

YOu are supposed to select the closed of those categories describing best your business - even if it isn;t  exactly what your business does.

 

And no: there is no feature to add categories not yet listed.

But please be aware: there are category lists for almost all countries and the differ slightly.

It therefore might be a certain existent category in country "A" doesn't exist in a counttry "B".

In such case we TC's have a channel  to report such a missing category for the specific country "B" hinting Google on  the fact the category is available in "A".

About what missing category are you talking?
