How to get rising talent badge?

Hello, I have completed couple of jobs and the client was very satisfied with my work. I had some research that as long as I don't have a Job success score, I could earn a rising talent badge. How would I be able to participate to acquire the rising talent badge? Thank you!

Have you done all of the following?

 

1.  Pass the Upwork Readiness Test

2.  Complete your projects on time and as promised

3.  Maintain a 100% complete profile that accurately showcases your skills

4.  Keep your availability status up-to-date

5.  Regularly submit proposals to projects that match your skill set

6.  Adhere to the Upwork Terms of Service

7.  Have been active in the past 90 days or joined in the past 30 days

I am done with all those things. How can I claim my Rising Talent Badge?

Hi Ahsan,

 

The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. This process is working as designed, and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you will receive a notification. Thank you!

Hi Anjali,

 

I would be happy to help. Please know that the Rising Talent status is automatically applied to users whose profiles meet all of the requirements. You can have a look at this article about Becoming Rising Talent to see what the exact requirements are that you must meet to obtain a Rising Talent badge on your profile.

Once all the requirements are met, you'll be invited into the program automatically and receive the badge within 48 hours.

 

I would also like to let you know that not all projects and clients are equal, so the time it takes to get a Job Success Score varies. In order to get a Job Success Score, you need to complete:

 

  • Projects with 2 (or more) different clients
  • 4 (or more) different contracts within 24 months

 

More than 90% of freelancers have a score after 5 projects, and nearly all freelancers have scores after completing eight projects. Feel free to check this help article for more information. 

 

Let us know if you have further questions.

How can I claim my Rising Talent Badge?

Hi Rahul, 

 

As Joanne said, it will be automatically assigned to your profile if you meet all the requirements and it cannot be requested.

Hi Robin, I've fulfilled all the requirements listed here but I got a JSS first, without getting a notification from Upwork about my Rising Talent Badge. According to Upwork, the badge comes first before the Job Success Score. Will I still get my badge, because it is limiting me to apply to certain jobs which have Rising Talent as the requirement. An example is the picture attached below. Also, I wrote the Upwork Readiness Test when I newly joined Upwork and passed it all, do I still have to write it again, thanks.

Hi Julius,

 

The Rising Talent program is designed for freelancers who donโ€™t have their Job Success Score yet. Since you have received your Job Success Score, you can start working toward receiving the Top Rated badge.

 

Happy working!

Hello, You mentioned that completed it on time. I have completed one job recently, but the timeline was 1 day but the client was away so I delivered it later when he came back, is It effect my account and I'll not get the rising talent badge because of this??

No, You are not allowed to communicate with any clients outside the platform at all in any way before a contract is in place.

Hi Md Saidur Rahman,

 

Please note that the option to take the Upwork Readiness Test has been removed. Also as a requirement for Rising Talent, the rest of the requirements stay the same and can be found in this help article.
