Hi Joy,


The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the criteria listed here. As for the skills test, at this time you cannot request to be invited. For the best chance of being invited in the future,  we suggest freelancers achieve a solid reputation, keep a complete and up-to-date profile that is not set to private, and maintain an active Upwork account in good standing.  You might want to check out the following freelancer resources to help you submit winning proposals:
