Throughout your entire profile. It wouldn't matter so much if you didn't claim native level English skills....

I have previously taken the Upwork Readiness Test and have completed it well. After that, I got free connect 30 and Rising Talent Badged, but a few days after that, the badge disappeared from my profile. Please more advise about this.

The Rising Talent badge is temporal. If it disappears it doesn't mean anything wrong. You already completed a couple jobs so you are going great. Your goal now is to get the Top Rated badge.

Hi Ahmad,


Rising Talent status is automatically applied to users whose profiles meet all of the requirements. You are on your way to get a Job Success Score. In order to get a Job Success Score, freelancers need to complete:

  • Projects with 2 (or more) different clients who left feedback
  • 4 (or more) different contracts within 24 months

More than 90% of freelancers have a score after 5 projects, and nearly all freelancers have scores after completing eight projects.


Thank you!

I have completed the readiness test from upwork and have already done multiple projects. However, I can't see the Rising Talent badge on my profile.


Can you help?
