Regarding 30 free connects for Rising Talent

Hi Mudassar,


It may take 48 hours for connects to be credited to your account after receiving the badge. May I know when you received the Rising talent badge?

I was under the impression that when you receive rising talent status, in addition to the 30 free connects, you also receive an email offer to invite your outside clients to upwork with no service fee. When can I expect to receive this email so that I may forward my unique link to my client?

Hi Regina,


You are right and I'm going to follow up with the team about your unique link to invite a client. We'll have the email sent to you as soon as possible.

Hi Kuldeep,


When did you received the Rising Talent badge? It can take up to 48 hours for the connects to be awarded on your profile, thank you.

Hello, nice to meet you.

I need your help.

I got Rising Talent badge a few days ago and after that I received an email stating that I will receive 30 free connects as I have been enrolled into Rising Talent program by Upwork team but I haven't received these additional connects till now.

Does anyone have any information that when will I receive this additional free connects?

Same thing happened to me. I haven't been credited my 30 connects for Rising Talent status as well.
