Why does "jestem innzynierem z zawodu" not work?

You misspelled 'inżynierem'. Other than that it's correct.

duo took away a <3 -- they said: "Z zawodu jestem inżynierem" -- I know in PL switching around like this is totally acceptable. I was really confident I was right.

1) not all possible good answers are included , it's in beta and also PL->EN still doesn't have all of them 2) for some reason if you misspell the sentence DUO wants it sees at as spelling mistake, but often when you misspell other possible accepted answers it marks it as wrong . But "jestem inżynierem z zawodu" is correct polish sentence

So i thought about how i wanted to say this and came up with "mój zawód to inżynier" I understand why this was flagged as wrong (meaning is basically the same but the translation doesn't match). I just want to verify that this is a correct, usable construct.

I don't know if it's wrong, but it's at least unusual. When I googled "Mój zawód to", most results are like "My profession is my future" or "My profession is my passion". Also "My profession is doing this and that".
