Hello Team,


I am on my way to being a top rated freelancer. Would I have access to the Talent Cloud? What are some of the perks of being a top rated freelancer?

You will get a nice blue badge on your profile!


Other than that you're not gonna notice much difference. There is the feedback removal perk though, and you'll have access to the TR part of the forum, where nothing ever happens.

Hi Roxanne, 

That's good to hear! Here are some perks of being a Top Rated freelancer, which you may also read in this help article

  • A badge on your Upwork freelancer profile
  • Personalized tips to strengthen your profile
  • 0% fees for all jobs with new clients you bring to Upwork
  • Reduced fees (starting at 10%) on Featured Jobs
  • Premium customer support, including phone and chat
  • Exclusive invitations to submit proposals
  • An exclusive Job Digest email to make it easier for you to find attractive opportunities
  • The ability to exercise more control over your Job Success Score
  • The opportunity to chat with Upwork during online office hours exclusively for Top Rated
  • The opportunity to host Top Rated Events in your city

There are two ways to to gain access to Talent Cloud jobs: 

  • Submit a proposal to a publicly-posted Enterprise project.
  • Accept an invitation to be a member of a Talent Cloud network. This can happen when the Enterprise client wants to assemble a reserve of potential freelancers before specific project needs arise.
