Hi! I'm new here and passed the Readness Test today (4.5 out of 5), but don't see the badge on my profile page. Does it take any extra time to appear? Thank you for your help.

Hi Riri! Yes, I was invited and passed it with 4.5 per my original post here. So, for the bagel to appear it needs to be at least 1 job finished, correct?
Were you hungry when writing this?
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. In order to prevent anyone from unfairly bypassing our guidelines, we cannot release the specific numbers. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.
