Why I do not have a Rising Talent badge?

I read about the requirements of the Rising Talent badge:


  • I joined this month
  • I have a 100% completed profile
  • I don't have any JSS (But I have 1 completed job)


So anyone who knows why (am I missing anything?)... please help me!


Thank you very much!

 Did you see the rules about profiles?


Such as not using stolen photos (in your case of a celebrity)

Thanks for the reminder! I totally forgot about the profile picture (haha) is that the only thing I'm missing?
