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.
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.
We look at a variety of factors when determining whether to award Rising Talent status. In addition to client feedback, the overall strength of your profile upon submission, including prior experience and skills and your educational background, we also look at the opportunities available in the market. As such, Rising Talent status will not be available to all users.
I hope this helps.
Hi Upwork Members!
I have received a Welcome message when I logged in today about The Rising Talent Program.
But didn't get an email about it, then when I checked to my profile, I have seen my Rising Talent Badge.
So much happy with it. Thank you, Upwork.
Now my question s that, When will I receive 30 free connects?
and how much time it will take to apply this badge to my account?
Because when I wanted to submit a job, which requires "Includes Rising Talent" it was showing Red error as same as before.
please help me with this question.
Congratulations on receiving the Rising Talent badge! Please note that it can take up to 48 hours for the system to update and award you with 30 bonus Connects. Let us know if you haven't received your Connects after 48 hours and we'll assist you further.
