If I remember correctly, connects are only returned if the job expires without the client ever touching it. If they interview anyone at all, then you don't get those connects back, even if it later expires or they close it.
Hi Upwork community,
I'm reaching you once again. I submitted proposal daily basis but I have seen that there are lots clients have posted job daily but they haven't hired anyone and after a month job is closed or archived. So, my question is that the proposal that I've submitted to the clients but they didn't hire anyone. Will I get my connect back for those clients who have not hired anyone yet but the job is closed after a month?
For an example: **Edited for Community Guidelines**
The above link shows that the client posted a job as per his/her requirement and we submitted a proposal but the client didn't hire anyone as per dashboard shows that he/she took one interview but the job is closed.
Will I get my connect back?

You only get them back if the client proactively closes the job post without having hired anyone or Upwork closes it down because of a violation of the terms of service
I think this is not a solution, we invested money to buy connect for sending the proposal but after a month the job is expired without having hired anyone. I think those connect should return.

It is what it is.
Consider Connects as non-returnable tokens. If you send a letter and get no response, you don't get the stamp refunded, either. Just send the proposals and forget about the connects. They are your (small) cost of doing business.
We are beta testing a new way to help you stand out to clients. Now you can optionally bid additional Connects to appear in one of three promoted slots pinned to the top of clients' proposal managers.Learn More
