I was looking at the article "How to become top-rated on Upwork", in which one condition is you must have a 100% completed profile. Then, I started looking at my profile percentage, it was 40% only.
Then, I searched for articles for "How to improve profile percentage", I found this article (link).
According to this article, I must not have only 40%. Here's why not. In this article, you can see:
I have a profile photo, profile title, profile overview, education, and 10 skill tags. Almost all things except Employment History. Please tell me why I am only at 40% only as I have not only 1 option .i.e., Employment history.
After that you can see this one:
From these, I have 5 Portfolio items (according to article 20% must be added**), then I have 3 (out of 6) Linked Accounts (10% must be added**), then I have given 4 Upwork Tests (which will be not available after 9 July, but its score is not added yet, 20% must be added**).
**30% of the total will only be added.
Can anyone tell me the reason???

Hi Muhammad Usman,
Please note that in order to reach the initial 60% you’ll need a photo, title, overview, and at least one entry each for education, employment history, and skill tags. Upon checking, one of the required sections is not completed on your profile, employment history is missing. Please check this help article.
Could you please try completing this section and let us know if your profile completeness increased.
