I just got Rising Talent status today and the badge appears in my profile but I did not receive the extra 30 connects that was supposed to come with it. Does it take a few days for that to show up or is there someone I need to contact.

Hi Kyle,

Looks like the connects have already been credited. Please, see your Connects History here for more information.


Congrats on becoming a Rising Talent!

Hi Valeria, 

I got the same issue. I got the Risign talent from Upwork last week and I didn't get the 30 connects yet. 

Could you please take a look at this issue and solve it for me ? 

Look forward to hearing from you. 

Kind Regards,

i just became a rising talent, and i read that i will get a "A one-time bonus of 30 free Connects for you to submit more proposals to clients", but i didn't recieve any.

Is there any running-through time in the connection delivery?

Hi Adam!


Congratulations!  You're on your way to the top.  Sometimes it can take some time for the connects to be credited to your account.

Dear Upwork,


about 1 or 2 months ago I became a rising talent and I received most of the stuff that came with it. But there also was a free 30 connects bonus which I didn't receive. I thought that they would appear when I received my new connects but they didn't. I still have the usual 60 connects instead of 90 I'm supposed to get.
