Hello everyone.

I am new to Upwork
I think I meet all the requirements to get the Upwork Rising talent badge.
I don't know why they don't grant it to me.
I would like someone from the Upwork team to review my account and let me know what I am doing wrong.
Can I be eligible for Upwork Rising talent?

Upwork really ought to change the wording to explain this better, because people ask this question in the forum every single day. Meeting the criteria just means that you're "eligible" for a rising talent badge; it doesn't mean that you'll definitely get it, unfortunately.

Hi Josep,

 

The Rising Talent badge is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. This process is working as designed and we can't specify a reason when a freelancer is or isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.

I checked and it seems that you are on your way to get a Job Success Score, one of the requirements to earn and maintain Top-Rated status. To get the Top Rated badge, you'll need to fulfill all of the requirements mentioned in this help article.

 

Thank you.

HI J-Vae, 


As Aleksandar has noted on his post, we will not be able to confirm if a user is eligible for the badge or not. If you meet the requirements listed on Aleksandar's link, you will receive an email which will notify you of your eligibility to be part of the program.

The key part of Upwork's response was: "This process is working as designed and we can't specify a reason when a freelancer is or isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge."
