I have submitted my application a few days ago.

I heard it takes usually 24 hours to get an answer as to whether you've been approved or not.


I don't understand why it's taking so long.

I haven't missed a section, and i've always checked both my inbox and junk/spam mail.

 I doubt your profile pic will fly unless you are a Smurf.

Fairly non-descript overview and worst of all - no portfolio!

Without a meaningful portfolio you might as well forget it considering you are trying to break into what is one of the most competitive and cut-throat categories on the platform.

Hi Sylvia,


I've checked and you don't need to submit your profile for review. However, you do need to enter your address on your Contact Info and Tax Information pages (click on your photo in the upper-right corner > Settings).

I have submitted my profile about a week back, stilll havent heard from upwork. Wrote to the upwork support team asking them about the same and they asked me to click on the review button and resubmit my profile. I filled in all the details, not sure what is the next step. I see no Submit button so I am assuming just filling in all the information and click the review profile button should be enough.
