And six, count 'em six, are "Rising Talent". Time to get rid of the RT program.


The presence of profiles like this clearly illustrates that Rising Talent status is arbitrarily assigned.  It seems impossible that an FL with no contracts and zero earnings could fulfill all of the stated criteria that are supposedly in place to determine who gets it and who doesn't.

Yes ... and the worse of it is this: clients using RT as a job requirement, and/or clients assuming Upwork actually knows/guarantees/suggests that freelancers with this badge are freelancers you want to hire if you're looking for (honest) talent.

 

Seriously Upwork ... we all did fine  without a RT badge - get rid of it. That will also get rid of the hundreds of newbie posts crying about the whereabouts of their 30 free connects, or "why I don't have rising talent badge" yet?   Smiley Frustrated

But they all dropped a letter in this sentence:
One of the recent complex plugin for WP I have coed was an API for a car rental company. Robot Sad

Maybe the algorithm has been recoded (if that's what it's called) to include "the luck of the Irish". 

 

LOL, and the plot sickens: https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/Upwork-Account-Stolen/td-p/701011

I especially like the boy named Aisling, which last time I checked was definitely a female name.  

At least they got the time zones right this time...

Maybe they all went to the same coed coding academy?

Yesterday I marked 5 profiles of this batch, they were the only ones that appeared with this copied description. It seems that measures were taken against those, they are no longer on the list.
Curious, yesterday everyone was from Canada, as always, but now they have moved to Ireland Man Frustrated

I just flagged two pages of them, all in Ireland.  Guess they moved overnight?
