How to Apply to the Preferred Freelancer Program
If you think you have what it takes, apply to become part of the Preferred Freelancer Program. The payoff is access to the best projects and personalized customer support.
On the Preferred Freelancer Program page, just click Get the Best Projects Now to get started.
On the application page, you can assess your eligibility. The requirements you need to reach are listed there. Remember that you will not be eligible for the Preferred Freelancer Program if you have not completed any project in the last 12 months.
If you are currently ineligible, we encourage you to successfully complete more than 3 projects in the next few months first and reapply.
All of the stats in the eligibility checker are based on your top skill, which is determined by number of projects you have completed over the last 12 months. You can find these at the lower right side of your profile page.
All your top skills are calculated from the feedback and reviews we receive from your employers. As such, these are system-generated and cannot be manually edited. Instead, you may choose to complete more projects and earn more reviews in a specific skill within the next few months to increase its rank in your top skills list.
