I have recieved an email saying that I have been awarded a Rising Talent badge and to take the Upwrok Rediness Test to claim it. I have taken & passed the test 3 times but I do not see the badge listed on my profile. Can someone help me out with this?

Hi Matthew, 

 

The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. You will be notified once you the badge has been added to your account. Thank you.

Hi Dot,

 

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.

Hi, Upwork community,

This is Prosanta Mondal a proud freelancer of Upwork. I'm working on this platform about 8 to 10 months. I always try to abide by Upwork's terms and conditions.

But I didn't get rising talent badge yet so there are some questions rising in my mind.

I need to answer some of my questions which are:

1: Why I'm not getting Rising talent Badge

2: Check my profile weather I use any words , images, conversations, and Pre-packaged projects

that go against Upwork T & C.

3. would you please calculate, from next week what are the requirements I need to become a top Rated freelancer?

Note: Please check the overall of my account health. 

Thank you so much.

Hi Jeanne, 

Below I am sharing the Upwork criteria to get a Rising Talent badge:

 

  • Pass the Upwork Readiness Test
  • Complete projects on time and as promised to clients
  • Maintain a 100% complete profile with accurate skills and genuine work
  • Keep your availability status up-to-date
  • Regularly submit proposals to projects that match your skill set
  • Adhere to the Upwork Terms of Service
  • Have been active in the past 90 days or joined in the past 30 days
  • Your account should not have any recent account holds

As you have violated the upwork Terms of service by creating two accounts knowingly or unknowingly and your account has on hold so for the time being you are not eligible for the Rising talent badge.

Why would I not have a rising talent badge if I have met all the following requirements?

  • Pass the Upwork Readiness Test
  • Complete projects on time and as promised to clients
  • Maintain a 100% complete profile with accurate skills and genuine work
  • Keep your availability status up-to-date
  • Regularly submit proposals to projects that match your skill set
  • Adhere to the Upwork Terms of Service
  • Have been active in the past 90 days or joined in the past 30 days

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi Doug,

 

You will be notified that the badge has been added to your profile once you qualify. This process is automatic, and we can't share why a freelancer won't have a Rising Talent badge on their profile.

Hi Joanne-

 

I appreciate your response but it does not really answer my question.  If the process is automatic then there should be a know period of time the process takes to complete. Also, not knowing why a Rising Talent Badge is not issued would seem to lessen confidence in said process.

 

I am trying to make my profile complete and attractive for potential clients.  In doing so I found the one thing prohibiting me from have the Rising Talent Badge was the fact that I had not completed the UpWork readyness test.  So I took the test and passed.  If the platform knows I did not that the test, it should also know when I did take and pass the test.  

 

Thanks again for your reponse.  I hope to have the badge sooner rather than later.
