Hello Sandip,


I will review this with our relevant team and you will receive a notification on your registered email address if you qualify for the Rising Talent Badge on your Upwork profile. If you have already passed the Upwork Readiness Test, you will not be required to take it again.


Thank you

Hi Hafiz,


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.

You have a Job Success Score, so you no longer have a Rising Talent badge. The two are mutually exclusive. The next thing you can work towards is top rated status.

As Petra says, when you have a Job Success Score (JSS) the Rising Talent badge is removed.

It's already 48 hours over I have given "Readiness Test" and passed with 5 out of 5, and also meet the all criteria as per Upwork rules. But still my Rising Talent Badge is not active to my profile. Now my humble request to you, please check my profile and clarify the issue. So that I shall be highly obliged to you.



Thanks & Regards
