Rising Talent Badge not received

Hello Upwork community,

 

This is my first time posting to the forum, and the reason I've reaced out is simply I can't wait!

 

I received a notification this morning once I logged in sayingg that I've been eligible for Rising Talent program, and need to take the Readiness Test. So I did and passed the test, but nothing happened.

 

Hours later I received an offical Email this time, saying almost the same thing, plus that I need to "claim my Rising Talent Perks". So I re-took the test( passed obviously), and nothing happened yet, no badge, nor any extra feature/Connects. I didn't find any option to claim the badge after the test(s).

 

I assume its a matter of time as support team said, but need to know if I've missed something( my profile is 100% complete).

Your comments are highly appreciated!

Congratulations on being part of the Rising Talent Program, Seyed!

You should receive the badge within 24-48-hours. If this doesn't happen automatically, you can come back here, and we'll be happy to assist you.

Hi Seyed Farhad,

 

Rising Talent status is automatically applied to users whose profiles meet all of the requirements.

 

You are on your way to get a Job Success Score, one of the requirements to earn and maintain Top Rated status. 

 

Please, allow time for this process to be completed, as you might receive the JSS by the Monday.

 

Thank you.

Hi Bojan,
Thanks for your respond.
I received an Email saying that I'll be get my rising talent badge upon passing the readiness test.
Now you are saying me that I WON'T get the badge and PROBABKY will get my JSS instead?!
I want the badge as Upwork has promised, then the JSS whenever it'll be ready. Otherwise what was the point of that Email?
Regards,

Seyed F.

Hi Bojan,
The Email has said that I'm eligible for rising talent badge( hasn't nentioned anything about JSS). Now you are telling me that I won't get the badge and PROBABLY will get my JSS which is applied to all freelancer instead?!
Doesn't make scence to me, and I expect my badge, and when that time comes, the JSS.
Don't understand why Upwork has not yet award me the badge.
Regards,

Seyed F.

Bojan,
Please see the attachment and read it carefuly.

Your comment doesn't make sense at all. As you are aware of, only 5% of freelancers will be eligible for this program, and it's mentioned in the Email that "all I need to do is to pass the test". Now you are telling me that I might get a JSS which is applicable to all freelancers, and won't get the benefits of a Rising Talent member( like the Connects)?!

Please be more detailed in your response. Also FYI I promised a client during an interview that I'll be a rising talent member within the next 24 hours as support team had promised me; Upwork made me a liar.

You'll get a Job Success Score tomorrow anyway, so I have no idea why you are having quite such a meltdown, the Rising Talent badge would vanish at that point anyway. So is it worth a bunch of frantic posts to have a silly little badge for 24 hours?


You "promised a client" that you'd be a Rising Talent?

Seriously?

The client would care.... why, exactly?

Hi,

I want the Rising Talent awards/perk, and Upwork is skipping them. Regardless of JSS, I want what I've been promised for. Why I'm not getting my badge, and THEN, tomorow as you said, my JSS?!

Hope That Make Scence!

What perk? There is no perk. You work harder and get better perks now.

As Petra said, JSS updates again tomorrow. Rising Talent badge is useless.

Time to move on and work toward a consistent 100 percent.

Welcome to the pool!
