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, my profile has been under view for near 48 hours and no decision received yet. Is there something wrong with my profile or account? Thanks.

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."
