Hi. I'm writing on behalf of my friend, **Edited for Community Guidelines** . His user in Upwork is **Edited for Community Guidelines** He wants to know why his profile isn't approved. I can recommend him with my eyes closed. He's the Creative Director of our creative studio, Krea, and has great ability in branding, design and marketing strategies and creations.
I speak highly of him. Please, help him get his profile approved.

Hi Ruy,

While I'm sorry to hear about your friend's registration not having been accepted, we won't be able to discuss another user's account status here in the Community. Thank you for understanding.

Hello, I am new to upwork aswell.

When I log into my account I am stuck in the "Create your profile" screen for a month now.

Since I send in my profile for a review I did not recieve any emails yet. If you google my account you can already find it online, but I cannot move out of the "create your profile" screen when I am logged in. Can you please help me.

Thanks in advance.


Edit: I just fill in everything again and I now was able to get into the next section and the profile is now under review

Hi, I'm new to Upwork and now I have to post question using my client account since my freelancer account somehow could not post/reply. I have the same problem that my profile has been rejected for almost 14 days with the same reason:"Insufficient for the marketplace", even when I have changed/added skills, portfolio, experiences..., almost everything.
Can you please tell me how to get approved? Thank you in advance
