With a wealth of experience under their belts, elite-level freelancers are best suited to providing quality work and exceptional customer service. Employers know this. Freelancer.com searches far and wide for the best freelancers in their respective fields. They are invited to the Preferred Freelancer Program so they can work on some of the best projects on Freelancer.com.
Only the top and most trusted freelancers are accepted to join. If accepted, they will be given access to quality leads and high-level support. Moreover, they will receive the Preferred Freelancer Badge, which will be shown on their profile, their achievements in full display to everyone.
Our team reviews all applications with a fine-tooth comb. This takes time, but we endeavor to respond within two (2) weeks. Freelancers will see the Preferred Freelancer Badge (see above) appear on their profile once their application is approved.
If you are a Preferred Freelancer, make sure your badge is visible by doing the following:
1. Go to the Settings page.
2. Select the Account tab.
3. Under the Preferred Freelancer Program Status section*, make sure the toggle is ON. This tells Recruiter Assistants that you wish to be contacted and that you are available to work on projects.
*If this section is available, then your application has been approved.
