Hi Anoop,

 

The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. This process is working as designed and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.

 

Thank you.

Hi Jhaman,

 

I checked but couldn't replicate the issue as the notification wasn't showing. I checked and you did pass the Upwork Readiness Test and if the notification continues to show, please, take a screenshot and send me a private message so that I can check and assist you further.

 

Thank you.

Hello, as a newbie I went through a freelancer search in the platform to get an understanding on the positioning of my profile. 

To my surprise, I found a freelancer tagged as "rising talent" but he has no work and earning history here, let alone reviews.

I checked the relevant page and requirement 2 for rising talent is: "Complete your projects on time and as promised" - and how about having no contracted pieces of work at all in this platform?

I had to digest plenty of information and rules during this time as beginner here, there is a good chance that I missed something important.

I am in the understanding that such achievements would depend on work history, quality and timing of services and reviews. 

If that's wrong, well, I would aspire to the "rising talent" medal as well. How can I qualify then? Thanks for your informed advice. Smiley Wink

Hi Deborah,

 

The Rising Talent badge is automatically assigned when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. Once you qualify for the badge, you will receive a notification letting you know and it will also reflect on your profile.

 

As a reminder, we look at a variety of factors when determining whether to award Rising Talent status. This includes client feedback, the overall strength of your profile upon submission, including prior experience and skills and your educational background, as well as the opportunities available in the market. Therefore, even new freelancers who have yet to complete any projects on Upwork can be admitted into the Rising Talent program.

 

Thank you.
