I registered since more than a week on upwork as freelancer but my profile is not showing status anywhere. How do I know if it is approved or not?

When I check the profile page it only shows me the profile in edit mode and only allow to review. i..e there is no "SUBMIT" butto/option

I recently finished my application and it said congratulations on the log-in page, but how do I know if I'm approved?  It originally said 24 hours, but I'm not sure if the congratulations on the log-in page means I was approved already?

Hi Shane,


I checked and it looks like your account has been accepted. Since you already selected a membership plan you should be able to send proposals to jobs on the general marketplace. Please, make sure you check resources in this post to help you get started.

When I long on I get the following message

‘Your profile is under review
You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to submit proposals once your profile is approved’

This message has been showing for over a month. Am I approved to work on the platform?

Hi Arijeniwa,
If you can submit proposals. Then your profile is approved.

Hi Arijeniwa,


Yes, your account has already been accepted and you have already sent few proposals to jobs. Check out these threads Getting Started on Upwork and Hiring Headquarters and find there some excellent articles about Upwork.

Greetings moderators,


I was wondering if there is way for me to know whether my profile has been approved by Upwork?
