Rising Talent Badge

How i know that i am eligible for rising talent badge?

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi Marc,

 

The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed on this help article. This process is working as designed, and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible to receive the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.

I have completed so many projects but still haven't received a rising badge. Could you please fix this and add it to my profile?
Thank you.

Hey, I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to address an issue regarding the Rising Talent badge on my Upwork profile. Despite meeting all the eligibility criteria outlined by Upwork, I have yet to receive the Rising Talent badge.

 

As of December 7, 2023, I have been an active member of the Upwork community, diligently completing projects on time and maintaining a 100% complete profile with accurate skills. I consistently update my availability status, regularly submit proposals to projects that align with my skill set, and adhere strictly to Upwork's Terms of Service. Additionally, I have maintained a Job Success Score of 100% and have had no holds on my account in the past 90 days.

 

Your prompt attention to this issue would be greatly appreciated. If there are any further steps I need to take or additional information required from my end, please do not hesitate to let me know.

 

Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter.

 

Warm regards,

Hello!

It's been a long time since I have fulfilled the requirements of rising talent badge. I have 100% JSS. More than 16 weeks completed of eligibility and no account holds in the past 90 days. I haven't been awarded the badge. Why is that? Please resolve the issue.

Regards,

Dr. Fizza M.

Hello! As you can see I'm eligible for top rated, yet not even a rising talent badge has been displayed on my profile not to talk of top rated. How can this be resolved please?. 

Hi Olamilekan,

 

Thank you for reaching out. You do not currently meet all of the criteria for becoming Top Rated. You can find the requirements for the badge on this page

 

In addition, 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 a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible to receive the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.

Hello!

I am confused about the rising talent badge. I appear to have all the requirements, yet the badge is not appearing to potential clients. I have a job success score, and the top rated "eligible weeks" counter has been going up for four weeks, so I'm not sure what the hold up is. I've heard I should receive an email from upwork when the badge is awarded, but this has not happened yet. What could be wrong?

Hi Benjamin,

 

The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. I see that you've reached two of the requirements for getting the badge. This process is working as designed, and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible to receive the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know. 

 

Keep up the fantastic job!

I am a new member who has only been on Upwork for 5 months.
I have done 5 projects so far and got 100% marks on all of them.
Of course, the completeness of the profile is 100%.
However, the rising talent badge does not appear in my account profile.
If anyone knows why this problem occurs and how to fix it, I would appreciate it if you could let me know.

I am confused, I have had a 100% complete profile for months now, multiple 5-star reviews, don't have any holds on my account, never broke any TOS, paying monthly subscription, and bought a plethora of connects, and I still don't have a rising talent badge, why?

Why I am not getting the Rising Talent badge when I am already eligible for the badge according to Upwork terms?

Hi Arjay, thank you for responding but the main issue is I have fulfilled all the terms mentioned in the article you shared but still I do not have the Rising talent badge. I want to know the reason why. 

Upwork never give any reason or justify anything, they just use copy/paste answers provided to them by whoever is supervising the forum!

 

However, the ones who are penalized are us who are paying lots of money to Upwork to find jobs, even my profile met all required criteria to be eligible for the Rising Talent badge but I keep getting the same answer as you got without any further explanation or reason!

 

This is very disappointing, I have even been a paid member on Upwork for a few weeks then stopped because we get the same treatment and no consideration for whatever we pay to Upwork either through the purchase of connects, upgrading our profile, number of projects that Upwork are getting commissions etc.

 

Terms and conditions are strict that we need to keep all projects in Upwork (which we keep doing) as a support to Upwork and also for our own security. However, when it comes to get support from Upwork, there is Zero support, just copy paste messages that makes it even irrelevant to have a support forum with such answers and "support".

Dear Upwork Community,

 

Facing a setback, I lost my Rising Talent Badge. To bounce back, I analyzed my performance, sought client feedback, upgraded my skills, and optimized my profile. Highlighting successful projects, responding promptly, and consistently delivering high-quality work is now my focus. I'm determined to regain the Rising Talent Badge and share these strategies to inspire others on a similar journey.

 

Best,
Affan

Hi team I fulfilled the criteria of top rated but I am not sure when the badge will be displayed on my profile, further more I dont think I ever received rising talent badge although I qualified for that, howver I have a 100% JSS score badge not sure, which one is better though.

Hi Naaim,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Part of the criteria for becoming Top Rated, is maintaining at least 90% JSS or Rising Talent status for at least 13 of the last 16 weeks. Once you meet all of the criteria, the badge will be awarded to you. 

 

Additionally, the Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here.

Hello Upwork community,

 

Please help me.

 

After creating my Upwork profile, I left it untouched for a few months and didn't take on any projects. About a month ago, I started working on my profile and have completed projects and sent proposals.

Now, when I check the criteria for the Rising Talent badge in the badges section, I seem to meet the eligibility criteria. However, I haven't received the badge yet.

Will I not receive the badge now, or will it take some time for it to be awarded to me?

I am eligible for Rising talent and JSS score, but none of them is showing up in my profile. 

Hi Denys,

 

JSS and the badges are tied and usually update every 2 weeks since you finished the contract, but you actually need to receive any sort of feedback (public or private) for those to count.

 

Hope it helps,
Eduard

It works as expected. No Rising Talent badge allowed after JSS assigned.

And when I have my Top Rated badge, will I be able to appreciate my JSS?

Hello everyone,

 

Why all the answers from moderators are a copy paste from one another? Every post I read here in upwork, the moderators and managers just repeat and repeat the same answer again, and again and again and again....

 

and again, I would say... just to not to repeat again...

Hello,

 

I know that this question has been asked many times but still, I am really confused about how and when we get this badge!

 

The main requirements for this badge are:

 

  1. Being on Upwork for equal or more than 90 days (done)
  2. Have a minimum required of job success (I have a 100% job success rating)
  3. My profile is completed at 100%
  4. I have been submitting about 100 proposals till now and even bought about $100 connects (and maybe more)
  5. I never break any Upwork terms and conditions
  6. I am currently hired and working on two projects, my first project was on November 23

 

So, I don't really understand why I am still not having this badge and what's is missing???
