I have already fulfilled all those mentioned requirements, When will I get the Rising Talent badge? If there is anything that I should do to get RT badge please review my acount and let me know.
Make sure to follow the advice and tips shared in the Help article you read and note that you're a few contracts away from getting a Job Success Score and possibly becoming eligible for a Top Rated badge.
The rising talent was paused when I started and I got my JJS after a while.
What I am wondering now is that one of the perks of the Rising Talent badge is a one-time bonus of 30 free connects. Is it just bad luck for people like me that we never got our badge and no one-time bonus because we started while the program was paused?
I'm sorry that you feel this way. Please know that even when the Rising Talent Program was not paused, some freelancers did not get accepted in the program, and went straight to getting a Job Success Score.
I checked your account and you have a strong work history. I wouldn't be surprised if you get in the Top Rated Program soon. Keep up the good work, Jennifer!
I was just wondering why my profile hasnt been on the rising talent up until now. I have $800+ earning, 100% recommendation on 8 jobs, completed the upwork readiness test aswell.
