I have made my profile awhile ago, but never got a response, it keeps saying ''If your profile is approved, it will become the public profile you’ll use to market your freelance business to clients '' but it never got approved, I got no email from UpWork. This is my second time applying and I found no response the first time as well...


Your profile is incredibly empty and really you'd be lucky to have it approved with hardly anything on it.

Getting approved is only the first step, most people are rejected, and the majority of those who are approved never win a single job.

Your profile does not look like you spent any time on it or particularly care, so why would clients hire you?

How would I know if I got approved? I haven't received any email and it's been 3 days now.

I haven't received any email. Is my account approved? How can I find it out?

Is it possible that a client can send me an invitation to apply even if my account isn't approved yet?

I have this prospective client whom I met in person and asked me to send an application via Upwork. So to comply, I created an account here. However it says it has yet to be approved. Is there a way that I can soon send my application to him?

Thank you.

Hi Lerma,

 

The review process takes 24 hours from the time you submitted your profile for review. Once the process is complete, you will receive an email and a notification to your Upwork account to update you about your approval status. 

 

The Bring Your Own Freelancer program is open to clients. You may read this help article for more information.
