Hi Ben and Abigail,
You can go to Find Work> Profile and see if there is a notification about your profile still being under review. Please, note that it can take up to 24 hours for a profile to get reviewed.
Hello I am a new Upwork member and I would like to know when and how will I know if my profile is approved. I log on to see create profile but nothing else so would it be the same way if I am approved or not?
I would like to confirm that your Upwork account registration was accepted!
I highly recommend that you read up on the freelancer resources we have compiled, for great tips and insights on how you can work successfully on the platform. Please also pay attention to the Safety First! section of the resources, and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs for more information about working safely through Upwork. Hopefully, this will help you kick start your freelancing career on Upwork.
Good luck, and welcome to Upwork!
