I hope that you are having a nice and sunny day!
I would like to ask this: does my profile appear to tick all the required criteria in order to be considered for this new program?
I would love to have that badge, but I guess there is nothing I can personally do, right? I would need to be selected if it is the case.
Thank you for your input!
The program is currently in its beta stage so only a small, randomly selected subset of eligible freelancers can participate at this time. We hope to open the program to all eligible freelancers later this year.
I have been trying to get a rising talent badge for a while now. I completed my profile to 100% and set my work status. I still don't know what I am am missing.
Other than completing your profile to 100%, and setting your work status to available, please see below the other criteria to become a Rising talent in Upwork:
You may read more about the Rising Talent in this help article. Good luck!
Once you follow the recommendations in the email, your profile will be reviewed once again and if all the requirements for the program are met, you will be awarded the badge.
