Hi,

I submitted my profile earlier this week for verification and still no word back. How long does it normally take to get a reply for approval/rejection?

How do I know what is missing from my profile to get it approved? I am just waiting to be able to confirm my bank account but I have done about everything I could think of.

Every single day 10.000 hopefuls try to join Upwork. 98% are rejected, and of the 2% that are accepted, the vast majority never earn a single Dollar.

Once you have been rejected once, the chances of being accepted in future are very, very slim.

 

Upwork has far more freelancers than it can possibly support and your best bet is to forget about it for a year or two and maybe see if maybe things change in a year or two.

So....should I just delete my account then?
I fail to see how not trying to improve my profile and waiting a year would
help anything.
Guess I'll just have to find another platform. 🤷‍♀️

Hi Madeleine,

 

Upon checking, you need to update your profile overview and title, to clearly describe any specific skill and experience you might have. Once you finish, please resubmit profile for review.


Thank you.

I am unable to submit my application.

 

I have filled out each section, clicked on Review Application, but after the page refreshes, I cannot see a Submit Application button (there are no red boxes or errors in the applicaiton)
