Hi Jalil,

 

I've checked your Work History and believe the Rising Talent badge was removed because you now qualify for a Job Success Score, which will be displayed on your profile on Sunday.

 

Matteo, please avoid posting extraneous and off-topic messages, and keep in mind our Community Guidelines when posting in the forums.

Vladimir,

I may have gon a bit too far with my comment and I apoligeze. On the other hand however, when I rised the topic the best piece of advice I got from the Staff was "just keep bidding activelyAnd you'll see you can succeed". The point that everybody seems to be missing is that, when employer set certain criteria - and among them "Rising Talent" always appears, my bids get routinely turned down, no matter how qualified I am, or low my bid is, or how well written my proposals are.

As long as this Badge problem is not handled properly, my opinion will still be the same I have expressed.

I hope that my point of view is somewhat clearer now.

 Where is your proof you are 'losing' jobs due to a lack of rising talent star?

It could be clients were interested in someone else, or the person applied before you, or you didn't write a proposal that caught their eye...or any number of things.

Rising talent isn't the **Edited for Community Guidelines** you know. Would you rather stay a rising talent? That would mean you wouldn't be getting jobs. Be happy you have 2 jobs so far with super reviews! - now that's where it's at!!! Smiley Happy

I think it has nothing to do with the badge but how good your profile is. I have Top Rated badge with 100% success score but clients still picked others who have a lower success score than me. Just don't give up, some other clients will notice you somehow. ;-)

Thanks you.

HI Jalil, 


We're sorry for the inconvenience. I'll have the team investigate why your Job Success is not showing on your profile.

I recently lost my Rising Talent Badge too today.  And what is sadder part, a client of mine have hired me maybe because I had presented a solution to his problem on my proposal. But then, the client did not get online, I had followed up several times, but then when he get online he said problem already solved and the job no longer needs to be done. It's not part of my control, so I hope it must not be considered on my case. It's as if the client hasn't hired me in the first place cause there is no job to be done anymore. I had contacted upwork support and she said my case will be re-considered. Please, I hope so. It's unfair to me in this case.

I had 21 jobs (11 of them are inactive since months ago or even years ago. Mostly the job has delivered succesfully)

I recently closed 11 contracts at once then I lost my top rated badge altough I still have 91% job success, anybody knows when I will retrieve the badge? Yea of course those 11 closed contracts have no feedback because the clients have disappeared for ages Man Indifferent

Hi Caroline,

 

Closing old jobs is not the reason why the top rated badge was removed from your profile. Please check the list of requirements for the Top Rated program and let me know if you have any questions.
