Hello, For the past few days I've been updating my skills and experiences, taking upwork readiness test and other relevant tests, submitted a portfolio and done my profile to 100% completion- and I still did not get approved. Did I do something wrong? It's been two weeks.

 

If anyone would be so kind enough to check my profile and give their advice, that would tremendously help Smiley Happy Thanks in advance. Smiley Happy

Only Upwork employees have the power to approve user profiles, Udbhav.  I think your issue has been addressed already in another thread.

Why profile Not Approved?

Basically, Upwork seeks for the profile of freelancers, a combination of experience and skills according to client’s demand. While signing up for Upwork, you should know that you’re going to join the world’s best freelancing platform. They’ve their own screening process to approve your profile. 

 

If Upwork rejects your profile, it’s not the end. Even if you don’t get approved, you can always make some changes and resubmit your profile. There’s no reason to stop trying if you’re rejected the first (or second, or third) time.

 

Do You Know Upwork Marketplace Freelancer Profile Rejection Criteria?

 

If Upwork is rejecting your profile, it doesn’t mean they did it randomly. If a client is searching for a freelancer, Upwork has its own algorithm according to their requirement. It doesn’t mean that all of the tasks are robotic, this approval process may also own human component available. Now while making your profile, a freelancer should consider some points:

 

What actually Upwork is seeking for?
