I think you just need to be patient. Wait at least two weeks total before worrying.
Meanwhile, work on your portfolio. Tricky, yes, given your stated job skills, but you're smart. You can figure something out.
I think your profile text is a bit confusing in terms of communicating what it is you will do FOR ME, THE CLIENT.
But it's not bad. I would say you appear to be more of an asset to Upwork and to potential clients than 90% of new contractors whose profiles I have looked at.
Hello! How do I know if my account is getting reviewed or if it got rejected/approved? I have submitted my Upwork account days ago and nothing shows up. I keep getting redirected to the "introduce yourself" page.
Hi Ray, and Sophia,
I apologise for the delay. I have followed up your account with the teams handling the review so that they can proceed with reviewing your account registration.
