Hi Iryna,

 

Thanks for your question. At this time you cannot request to be invited. For the best chance of being invited in the future, we suggest freelancers achieve a solid reputation, keep a complete and up-to-date profile that is not set to private, and maintain an active Upwork account in good standing.

 

Thank you,

~ Nikola

Hi Nikola S ,  sorry to hear that. If I didn’t respond to the invitation, does it mean that I have lost my chance?

Hi Iryna, James and Benjamin,

 

Congrats on receiving the initial email! This means that you possess the skills that we're looking for in your category for our skills certifications. I know that we received a lot of responses already so it will take the team some time to go through them. I want to clarify that, in Benjamin's case, when clicking the link and selecting the certification you were interested in being invited to, this was to reflect your interest in receiving an invite and does not guarantee you will receive an invite. The next step is for the team to review your profile and experience and if deemed appropriate you will be sent the invite to complete the certification. 

 

Iryna,

 
Not at all! We don't have a timeframe for opening up the program to new requests at the moment. We'll follow up in the Community with an update as we continue to assess and expand the program. If you are invited to future assessments you will be notified via email. Thank you.

Hello people,

Last week I got an email telling me to pass the General Coding Assessment test.

Due to a personal reason, I am wondering if I can take this test later on? I mean after the 2 weeks from the time I got the email.

Thanks for your response

Hi Nikola,

I received the invitation for "Upwork Skill Certification" and have accepted it.

Now I have been given a deadline of 2 weeks to complete the tests.

 

Can you kindly elaborate what happens if I am not able to complete the tests within 14 days or if I am not able to get the passing score because as of now I am not sure about the pattern, coverage and environment of the test that'll be conducted?

Will it affect any of my current profile parameters such as job success rate, top-rated status etc?

 

Thank you.

Hi Nouman,

 

If you don’t pass the test, don't worry! Nothing will display on your Upwork profile. If you followed all the guidelines but don’t achieve a passing score, you may request to retake the test again after six months. Request a second test at assessments@upwork.com.

Thank you!

Hi Lena,

This is a welcome development. I received an invite last week or so, but I've been made to understand it's an error. I'm primarily a writer on Upwork, but I've taken advantage of specialized profile to offer my graphic design skill. I have my portfolio session filled. I've gotten a few jobs there. Do I get a chance of being invited, or it's for those who are mainly into these creative niches?

Hi James,

 

Please note that Upwork Skill Certifications indicate proficiency in one or more skills on your Upwork profile. Currently, these certifications are only available for certain skills in Web & Mobile Software Development and Design & Creative fields. You can find more information in this help article

Hi Nikolas,

Thanks for your response. However, my question is, will a freelancer who is active in two categories (writing and graphic design) be considered for invitation, since graphic design is one of the qualified skills at this time. I don't want to presume. I'm a writer, but I also have a specialized profile in graphic design category. I hope my question is clearer now.
