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.
I've been looking into this because I see it a lot on job postings, and I'm continuously being told that I don't meet the requirements when I submit proposals. I'm really struggling to get clients due to being new on Upwork, and at this point I'm having to take jobs for peanuts just to get feedback and experience. I'm almost spending more buying connects than I'm getting paid. As near as I can tell, I meet all of the requirements for it.
* I've completed and closed all of my contracts before time.
* I do not have a JSS.
* I have a 100% complete profile.
*I get 5/5 score in readline test.
* My availability status is up to date.
* I'm submitting proposals per day in my field and I complete all question fields.
* I have no TOS violations.
* I have been active in the last 90 days or joined with the last 30 days (both)
I did a little searching, and the forum is filled with questions about this, along with canned responses from mods that carefully avoid answering the question. So please, no responses with "It's awarded automatically once you meet the requirements" or "Well, you'll have a JSS soon anyway, so don't worry about it." Those are deflections, not answers. Either I (and apparently a number of other people) am misunderstanding the published requirements, or there is something else required that isn't disclosed.
Does anyone know what the secret is?
okey i understand but atleast answer this what is the process designed ... how much new profile upwork team saw daily to give them a badge !
and and please take a look onto my profile and told me where i'm lacking (weak points)..

Hi There... I have question about Rising Talent Badge. can you please let me know that why my profile is not eligible for this ?
Nobody will tell you why. Just keep going, and you may or may not get it.
As was confirmed previously by a moderator, Upwork will not tell you why you don't get it, so there is no point asking every week why you haven't got it.
If you become eligible, you get it automatically. If you don't get it automatically, you are currently not eligible.
