I created my profile today on June 27th a while ago. I selected Submit profile and I can now find jobs and everything but I'm not sure how to see if I'm approved? I don't have any email from Upwork. Where can I see it in the settings? How do I know my profile is approved?
Hi Hussain, Youssef and Yasmine,
Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked and can confirm that your accounts are approved. Welcome to Upwork! Feel free to check this help article to help you get started on Upwork as a freelancer. You can find more articles on this page.
Regarding Yasmine's question about the verification status. I checked and it doesn't look like you are required to complete any verification process at the moment. Please know that only earning freelancers are eligible/required to earn the “Identity Verified” badge. If you become eligible/required, we will notify you when you log into your Upwork account.
Edited to add information:
You are free to send proposals even if you don't have a verification badge on your profile. You can find more information here.
Dear Upwork team,
I recieved an email stating that "You are off to a great start"
1. Does that mean my profile is approved
2. If yes than why don't you say that "Congratulations your profile is approved"
