Dear Bojan,

My profile has yet to be approved in order for me to start submitting proposals.
I joined Upwork on 25 November 2019. It's been 3 days now.

The prompt message states:
"Your profile is under review
You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to submit proposals once your profile is approved."

May you give me tips on how to get my profile to be approved?

Looking forward to your kind assistance and reply.

Thank you.

Regards,
Yara

It is the start of a long holiday weekend. May happen in an hour. Or one more day. Or week. Be patient.

Hi Muhammad, 


I checked your account and it looks like it's been a few months already since your Upwork profile registration was approved. Are you seeing a notification on your account about your account still being reviewed?

It is a holiday week for Thanksgiving in the US so I suggest that you just be patient.

Hi Joan,

 

Sure I will wait.

I signed up for a new account on Upwork last Friday and I was told my account will be reviewed and someone will get back to me within 24hrs. It's been almost a week now. Just curious as to why it is taking so long. Why not just say someone will get to me rather than be so specific with the time and then nothing happens?

This length of wait is normal.

And you're in the middle of a long Thanksgiving weekend.

You may need to wait another week, or longer.

 

Your suggestion is a good one: Why say 24 hours when it isn't really going to happen within 24 hours?

 

I think that one should look at 24 hours as a "goal" rather than think of it as a "fact."
