I am new to upwork and I recently applied to be a freelancer.
However, it has been more than 24 hrs and I haven't received any communication on whether my account has been approved or denied. Am I doing anything wrong?
Hello people i am new on upwork i recently made profile and its been more than 24 hours and still looking for approval message any idea( is it a glitch or they take more time).
I am guessing this has been asked before but to be more spesific I am a bit confused about this waiting time on upwork. I did submit my profile more than 24 hrs ago but it still says "You should hear back within 24 hours...."
It would be more clear if it said something like "within few days" then we wouldn't worry if we did something wrong for the processes we did.
Because people aren't perfect.
An imperfect person wrote that.
I think it represents more of a goal.
It is a noble goal.
It is NOT intended to be a "fact" or a "true average amount of time."
My concern is to be sure that there is nothing wrong on my side that cause this imperfection. Waiting few days is not a big deal if a person commited to work with upwork but that "unknown time period" makes unnecessary questions like the one i got now. It could be better represented by making that warning message without a time tip if it's not a fact to prevent this confusing.
I apologize for the delay. I'll go ahead and follow up with the team, once the process is complete, you will receive an email and a notification about your approval status. Thank you for reaching out to us.
