Hi! I read that in order to get the Rising Talent badge you need to pass a test, but where can I take this test? Thank you

The test that your source refers to was decommissioned last year.

If you don't already have the Rising Talent badge, then you will not get it. Seems to be conferred at account creation (see Alas! Raising Talent badge.). Don't worry about it and just focus on working. With a few contracts completed (or a few active contracts at least 3 months old), you will get a JSS, which replaces the Rising Talent badge.

Never got one, but really appreciate your support in my efforts to have one ))))))

Hi there Upwork Team,

I'm wondering when I will get the rising talent badge or JSS. I met all the criteria,  5 star reviews on all my projects, currently at project 8, my profile is fully complete, still no badge... 

 

Can anyone check my profile or let me know what is going on?

 

Best regards,

Marc

Dear Annie Jane B,
I am appalled by the lack of transparency in your last answer on the topic of 'Rising Talent Badge.'
This is not clear or very honest,

The article that you link to does not explain the Rising Talent Badge any better than you have done here.

How is it that profiles with no completed jobs, or with only 1 active job, can get a Rising Talent badge?

 

I have read the critiria for Rising Talent badge, I believe I meet the requirements.

You have a JSS. JSS replaces Rising Talent Badge. They cannot coexist. Also, Rising Talent badge is awarded at seeming random. See Alas! Raising Talent badge.

Hi,

To my knowledge, I have complied with all the Upwork requirements to get a Rising Talent Badge. 

Is there a way I can find out why I havent received it yet?.

 

Is it possible to let me know if there is still something I need to do?.

 

Kind regards,

 

Kim

I have completed 5 jobs till now within the period of 1month but still not getting either Rising talent or job success score badge

Hi Tawab,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would like to clarify that 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.

 

Additionally, please know that the Rising Talent program is designed for freelancers who don't have their Job Success Score yet. Once they receive their JSS, the freelancer can start working toward receiving the Top Rated badge.

I don't know if this will help me find clients. I hope someone from here will answer my question of whether it will help or not. It's been a week since I have it but I'm still struggling to get any projects here.

good

I also have the "rising talent badge", but honestly speaking, this badge doesn't help too much to get a client or land a first job. The only thing that can help you get the job is writing winning proposals that must be seen by clients. Now that freelancers are boosting proposals, you can also boost them to get your first job.

Hello,

I want to lodge a complaint concerning the rising talent badge that stopped displaying on my profile two weeks ago. I was revamping my profile, so I had to delete all of my portfolios and wanted to update them with the latest ones, but I couldn't do that again that same day. I noticed that the badge wasn't there again the following day, so I updated the portfolios a few days later which made my profile 100% completed again. Since then, I have been expecting the badge to display again but still, it hasn't. Please help me out.
