Hi Doug,

 

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.


Best,

Hi Youssef, 

 

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 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.

Thanks.

Hi Blend,

 

There are many factors that contribute to a Rising Talent badge. This includes client feedback, the overall strength of your profile, prior experience and skills, your educational background, and the opportunities available in the market. Once qualified you will receive an email notification.

 

Thank you.
