My profile is 100% complete and I have submitted four proposals.
My understanding is that I won't be eligible for Rising Talent status until I have completed at least one contract. Then I will qualify as Rising Talent and will be added to that pprogram and be notified by email. No application necessary.
I just want to confirm this and that there is nothing else I can do for the moment to gain Rising Talent status.
You are correct.
Some people seem to get it even without contracts, so the eligibility is not totally clear to me, but in any case, there is no action required (or allowed) from your side.
It seems to be something that is bestowed solely at UW's discretion. And as soon as you are eligible for JSS calculation, it goes away. I wouldn't give it another thought.
