I have read a lot of articles on becoming rising talent and plese forgive me if I am just overlooking the information, but where do I sign up to get an email to join in?
Hi, when I first started I was in the same place - I appeared to meet all of the requirements, but I wasn't getting that gold star! And they told me the same thing - and I am still subscribed to this thread :/
But then one day it just showed up on my profile.
They don't want to reveal their internal trade secrets and stuff but I imagine there is some kind of evaluation process that just takes time and eventually your account will come up and they'll be like "she's awesome! Approved.".
By the time I got mine I was thinking I wouldn't even need it any more though I should say though, I was starting to get some traction with a better profile etc.
