It was "should" and not "will". There is a difference.

Hi there,

I am seeing this message when I login into the Upwork "

Your profile is under review

You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to submit proposals once your profile is approved."


It is more than 24 hours now, but I did not hear back from Upwork team. How do I know the status of my account?

I'm new here and I have no idea if I'm the only one experiencing this issue, but it's been a week since I submitted my profile for review and I still haven't heard from UpWork. Can anyone help me with this?


Thank you very much in advance.

I took a look at your profile. I don't see any red flags,

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.

Hi Valerie,


Just want to check what is the lead time for a profile to be approved? Can you please check mine. Thanks
