I am not a freelancer so do not know how the freelancer board does look like, so cannot tell you how can you look for the said information.
But as a client when I click on your profile. There is a Hire Now button and a search for you name does return your profile among search results, so you profile seems to be an approved one.
You will receive an email and a notification to your Upwork account to confirm the status of your profile approval. Upon checking, I see that your account has already been approved. You may now start sending your proposals. Also, please check out this thread to help you get started on Upwork.
I just finished my Upwork profile, and last time I tried I got bumped 4 times because there were already lots and lots of developers available.
Instead, I can now already submit proposals and there was no profile vetting waiting time.
Is my profile now good enough or the vetting time has been abolished? Can I start sending proposals?
