Job success score or "Rising talent"

Hello. I have a question regarding the account status and job success score display.

**Edited for community guidelines**
This freelancer has 2 jobs from 2 clients, 100$ earned, and she's a "rising talent", no other jobs done ever since.
I have 12(!) 5-star jobs from 2 clients, over 2k$ earned - and i don't have any labels. For half a year i am struggling with getting even the simplest contracts. I think my proposals and my profile deserve to finally stand out. If not with a 100% job success score, which i should be allowed to have displayed already, then at least with a "rising talent" badge. Thank you.

Hi,

 

You need more clients to have a JSS. For the rising talent badge, I dunno how it works, I never got one. My JSS appeared after 6 weeks of works but I don't remember after how much contracts exactly. 6 or 7 jobs, with different clients, I think.

 

What the documentation says about it:

 

I don't have a Job Success Score yet. When will I get one?

More than 90% of freelancers have a score after 5 projects. Since not all projects and clients are equal, the length of time will vary. Nearly all freelancers have scores after completing eight projects. The projects need to be with at least three different clients and take place within a 24-month period.

I want to edit podcasts, it's a very simple process and i know exactly how to do it, but everyone wants to work with a guy who's already done some podcasts. And i have nothing to show for it, since none of my proposals to podcast jobs get through.
It's very frustrating to have tons of experience in some serious audio editing and not being able to get the easiest jobs on upwork because no one even looks at your profile and real experience. And not having anything to make me stand out after half a year of working and sending proposals is really starting to get to me, especially with 20% of my earnings i give for this "service".

Anyway, thanks for the response, maybe i'll get my 3rd client some day...
Should I contact the support about that rising talent badge? Might help to have it, i dunno =)

No, they can't award it. If you were eigible, you'd have it, it is all entirely automated.

But how come one freelancer has it and one with better statistics doesn’t?

You need completed contracts from at least 3 different clients for a JSS
