Hi Justas,

 

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. You can find more information here

 

Thank you,

~ Nikola

I keep getting emails inviting me to certify as a software developer, but I'm a 3D Artist. Can I do something to get an appropriate invitation?

Hi Naheed,

 

There are definitely a lot of opportunities on the platform for freelancers who have the skills and experience that are in demand among clients. Please, note that in order to be able to bid on jobs, have contracts with clients, build up their reputation and potentially earn Upwork Skill Certification, a user will need to have a freelancer account. Here is more information on how to create one.  I'd also like to encourage you to check your private messages here and feel free to reply if you have any questions. 

 

Thank you!

Hi Bojan,

I got the invitation during the first week of October. I submitted the application and I didn't get any other follow up emails after that. Could you please let me know what is the status of my certification? 

Thank you,

Ton

Hello Joanne,

Please read my previous comment properly. I didn't request to be invited. I already got an invitation from the Upwork assessment team (assessments@upwork.com) telling me that "Want to stand out as an expert on Upwork? You’re invited!" 

I submitted the application like they said with my updated portfolio and wanted to know when will I get an update about the certification.

I apologize for the confusion and appreciate your follow-up message. I checked and can confirm our team received your application. You should receive an update within the next 24-48 hours, in line with the three-week review time-frame. Good luck!
