Hi Fakhar,

 

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

 

Thank you!

Hey Bojan, thanks for replying.

 

Actually I have completed 5 contracts with 3 different clients and I have still got 10 days to get a JSS. So I would really like to have a Rising Talent badge until then.

 

I meet all the criteria illustrated at the page you shared:

1- Passed Readiness test.

2- Completed 5 contracts on time with 5* rating.

3- I have a 100% profile

4- My availability status is updated..... Open to offers

5- I keep submitting proposals.... currently I have submitted 40 proposals.

6- No terms violations until now

 

And Still not getting invited.

So plz review my account and let me know if I am missing something...! Thanks

Hi Fakhar,

 

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 should receive a notification letting you know.

 

Thank you.

Your profile indicates two completed projects and none in progress. Also, "I have still got 10 days to get a JSS" makes no sense. You get a JSS when you have enough completed contracts with several different clients. Elapsed time has nothing to do with it.

i read it here on the forum in a comment of some guru, he/she mentioned that JSS updates every other sunday so i have to wait until it updates even if i have enough projects completed. Thats why i mentioned 10 days

If you were eligible for RT status you'd have been awarded RT status. If you've done 5 contracts and those don't turn out to be fake, you'll get a JSS next time the JSS updates unless the minute payments mean they don't count heavily enough to qualify you for a JSS. They certainly don't advertise you as a valuable professional. They do the opposite.

 

Taking questionable jobs for unrealistically glowing feedback from clients who clearly engage in selling feedback is unwise and can cost you your account.
