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.

I meet all these criteria but still don't have a rising talent badge. 

I saw someone got his rising talent badge even if he doesn't have clients and didn't even send proposals yet.

Is someone here the same situation as me? I've been in Upwork for months now and have a long term client. I even received invites from clients to apply to them (like how with badges received theirs too.) It's just sad I still can't or don't have the badge.

Hello everyone,

I made my first job like 4 months ago and my client loved my projects and gave me even 10 dollar bonus. But in this 4 months I got 0 job I bought connects with all that money still 0 job i don't know what to do. I am thinking maybe its because i have 0 badge.

How can i get rising talent badge?

Hi,

 

I read the Rising Talent FAQ and to my understanding, I fulfil are requirements for a long time. But still, I didn't get the badge.

Also, I did 6 jobs but no JSS score.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

Congratulations! This badge is one of the ways that help freelancers and agencies who are new to the platform establish themselves on Upwork.

Hi Muhammad, 

 

In addition to Jam's response. Remember, many factors contribute to a Rising Talent badge. This includes client feedback, the overall strength of your profile, prior experience and skills, your educational background, and the opportunities that are available in the market. Even professionals who have yet to complete any Upwork projects can become Rising Talent if they have skills that are in demand.

I want to invite upwork team that please look at my profile and if I am eligible for rising talent badge so please give me it will help me to get client.

Hi Muhammad,

 

Upwork will issue that badge automatically when you meet the criteria:

To reach an Upwork Team member, contact customer service, this here is a community of users. Although if you have not received the badge, it is probably because you're not eligible, not because nobody noticed; this is all automatic.

 

Good luck with your career - keep applying for job that are a good fit, and you'll find clients.

 

Best regards,

Sandro

Hello, I am Sumit a relatively new freelancer grinding.
I have completed 5 jobs successfully but didn't get even a Rising talent badge.
Can a respected authority please make me clear about it?

Everyone is aware of the influence of badges. So, I need to know about the current situation of my Profile. 
Please, Check my profile once and let me know if I am eligible for any badge yet.

Kindly, 

Sumit D.

You only have 4 ended contracts, and only two of them have feedback from the client. You need more to get a rating.

 Hello Guys,

I have been an active freelancer on Upwork nearly for the past 2 years. And in this time I have successfully completed 3 jobs with 5 star rating. But, sadly, i haven't received my Rising Talent Badge.

 

However, I have seen some of the profiles of our fellow freelancers where they have not even landed on their first job, earned zero dollars, and obviously don't have any reviews to show but still their profile bears the shining badge of Rising Talent. 

 

I don't understand what did they do to get that Badge but it seems like they are just being gifted the badge for absolutely nothing. 

 

And the Rising Talent Badge stands for the 'Quality and Success Of Freelancers on Upwork' , but I don't get it how ?

 

*Please note that I have done everything necessary to be eligible for the Rising Talent Badge

*Please note that I have done every thing necessary to be eligible for the Rising Talent Badge 

It's automatically awarded, and I agree that there doesn't seem to be a lot of fairness involved in who gets it and who doesn't (unlike the top-rated badge, which is a lot more transparent). It seems to me - I don't know for sure - that if you have at least 2-3 things listed under your education and work experience, you're more likely to get the badge (i.e. evidence of higher education and more years of work experience). So if there's anything more that you can add to those sections, you could try that and see if it helps. But it looks like you'll soon get a JSS and top rated badge anyway.

A rising talent badge does not represent the quality of a freelancer profile. The rising talent badge is awarded to those who have taken an effort to complete their profiles, update their availability status, and are active on the portal by submitting proposals. In my opinion, this demonstrates the sincerity of the freelancer. 

 

This has nothing to do with your earnings or the number of jobs you've completed. 

 

It just takes a few steps to qualify for the Rising Talent badge, and in my experience is more rewarding than Top Rated badge in terms of wining jobs. 

 

Try it...you'll love it and you'll get more work.

Hi Kanwal,

 

Thank you for reaching out. The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements you've listed, which can also be found here. This process is working as designed and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.

 

Also, please note that not all projects and clients are equal, so the time it takes to get a JSS varies. In order to get a JSS, you need to complete:

  • Projects with 2 (or more) different clients
  • 4 (or more) different contracts within 24 months

 

More than 90% of freelancers have a score after 5 projects, and nearly all freelancers have scores after completing 8 projects.

We exclude clients whose freelancers report a history of unreasonable feedback so that their scores won't count against you, but that may mean it takes longer to accumulate enough reviews to receive your initial score.
