Hi Jayasree,


Your profile is approved and you can start sending proposals once you're ready. Thank you.

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"
