Rising Talent Badge

Hello,

 

I read the article about the Rising Talent Badge and met all the requirements but still didn't get one. I have had 8 clients and my profile is looking pretty good. Am I doing something wrong or is it a normal thing?

Hi Bogdan,
 
While I won't be able to provide a specific reason why a freelancer isn't eligible the Rising Talent badge, note that Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. It also looks like you're on your way to earning your Job Success score.

Hi Valeria,
I have also passed the readiness test. Had spending time on Upwork last 3+month and regular sending proposals and Had 2 projects with 5 ratings in all contracts. I had $500+ earnings till now but I can't see any badge on my profile and 100% job complete badge too?

Will you please guide me on how it happened?
Thanks,
Raju D.

Hi Anny,

I understood the reasons, but what about 100% job completions, I have done 3 recent projects with 5star and with on-time delivery.
Thanks,
Raju D.

Hi Arjay,
Thanks for your advice, if you have a look at my profile, I cover all "qualify for a Rising Talent badge" requirements and I am an active member here, but still, I don't know why, ๐Ÿ˜ž

Thanks,

Hi Raju,

I'm in the same situation, too much uncertainty.

Hi Annie, i have completed the rising talent criteria with 100% profile completion and pass Upwork Readiness test but did not receive any invite for the Rising Talent badge. Please advise

Hi Tan,

 

Thank you for your message. The Rising Talent badge is automatically assigned when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. Once you qualify for the badge, you will receive a notification letting you know and it will also reflect on your profile.

What other requirement is needed?

I got the Rising Talent Badge today,

Do you have some tips about how to get Rising Talent Badge?

Hello,

I got my Rising talent badge on 28th May and today when I checked, a JSS score is appearing instead. Can you please explain why my badge is not appearing now?

Hi Fatima,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. That is a good thing since Rising Talent badge is for new freelancers who are making progress in their freelance career here on Upwork. Once you have enough work history on Upwork, we automatically replace your Rising Talent status with a Job Success Score (JSS). Once you earn a Job Success Score, you can start working toward Top Rated status.

Thank you, Annie. I am working towards it. Hope to get positive results soon. 

Thank you for your response. 

Hi Valeria,
Please let me know why I'm not getting the Rising Talent Badge although I have fulfilled all the requirements listed below.

Hi,

 

I mailed support with the same question and was been told that rising talent badge is on inventation only now:

 


Support wrote:

The admission for rising talent is currently by invitation. Freelancers will be invited via email based on requirements for the program as well as marketplace demand. Some freelancers may appear to be eligible, but still, need to wait for an invitation as there is no manual vetting. In the meantime, please continue working on your profile and kindly wait to get invited to the program.

Can you confirm this?

 

Hi Frank,

 

If you qualify to become Rising Talent, weโ€™ll email you to let you know the badge has been added to your profile. You wonโ€™t need to take any action.

Hi Abdelrahman, 

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 why a freelancer is or isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once a talent qualifies, you should receive an invitation to the program.

I checked, and I can see that you already have a Job Success Score. Freelancers can't have a Rising Talent badge and a Job Success Score. While you can no longer be part of the Rising Talent program, you can now work your way towards the Top Rated program. Good luck!

I have also passed the readiness test. Had 6 clients with 5 ratings in all contracts. Had $600+ earning till now but cant see any badge on my profile?

Hi M. Adeel,

 

It looks like you already have a Job Success Score! The Rising Talent badge is only available for freelancers who don't have a JSS yet. Once you earn a Job Success Score, you can start working toward Top Rated status.

You don't meet all the criteria. It is automatic. If you were eligible, you'd have it. If you don't have it, that means that you are not eligible right now.

 

Chances are the client who knocked a star off for quality also left less than totally thrilled private feedback.
