Hello! I have a question about the "rising talent" badge.
Can I get the Rising Talent badge after a 2-year vacuum on Upwork?
Hey, I joined Upwork last 2018, but I just completed one job.
I asked the community and they told me to improve my skills. So that is what I did in 2018 develop some skills while gaining work experience through some offline jobs. And also got the certification.
Once I feel confident enough and I try to work on Upwork again in January 2021, I polished my profile and upload my portfolio.
In my 1st week of working, here again, I got interviews then I landed 3 jobs successfully with 5 stars feedback from clients.
I just want to know that Is there any possibilities to get a Rising Talent badge on my account?
Or the Rising Talent badge can be received only by fresh accounts.?
P.s. I read a "Rising Talent" article from the Upwork help center. It says you need to have a 100% complete account. Be active in the last 90 days. Satisfy your clients. And other things.Nothing about old or new account issues.

It's not impossible, but probably not likely.
You've done 4 contracts, so you'll get a Job Success Score after a few more (you need 4+, depending on size of contract, from at least 2 different clients within 24 months, so the one from 2018 is out of the window)
Please know that the Rising Talent status is automatically applied to users whose profiles meet all of the requirements. You can have a look at this article about Becoming Rising Talent to see what the exact requirements are that you must meet to obtain a Rising Talent badge on your profile. Once the requirements are met, you'll be invited into the program automatically and receive the badge within 48 hours.
This does not make any sense. I have completed all of the requirements. I have been a designer for more than 30 years. I know I will create a lost of happy customers for both of us. I'm not sure what else I need to do.
Six days ago I recieved the "Congrats, you're a Rising Talent" email, and also saw it would take around two days for the badge to appear on my profile. However, its been almost a week, and I still don't see it. I've been submitting proposals to projects I've been invited too, and started/finished contracts since, is it possible I'm somehow no longer in the program, or does it just take a while to display?
It says I have a JSS of 100% from six jobs, I know JSS and RT are exclusive, but I don't know the specifics of it
