I created a new field on customer_entity table.

 $setup->getConnection()->addColumn(
            $setup->getTable('customer_entity'),
            'profession',
            [
                'type' => \Magento\Framework\DB\Ddl\Table::TYPE_TEXT,
                'comment' => 'Profession',
                'nullable' => false,
                'default' => false,
            ]
        );

Now I need to update this field. I'm trying

    use Magento\Customer\Model\CustomerExtractor as CustomerExtractor;

    $customer = $this->customerExtractor->extract('customer_account_create', $this->_request);
    $customer->setCustomAttribute('profession','test');

but the field on table stay blank. No error appears.

if you take a look you will see the attribute needs to be added to customers form as well as attribute set. Hope this repo gives you some ideas to resolve your issue
