3 jobs to which I sent a proposal to were closed in 2 days, without any hires, but I did not receive mine connects back. I waited a month for those, so I get connects back, but there were none. The screenshots of the jobs are attached.

Please Help get my connects back!

Hi Jaffer,


We return Connects when a client closes their job without hiring or we find a job post has violated our Terms of Service. A job is canceled either by our team in case it's in violation of Upwork ToS or by the client if they don't want to proceed with it. A job expires after 30 days of inactivity but clients are still able to review proposals and hire freelancers after the mentioned time frame. Hope this helps clarify the difference between the two. You can find more information here.


Thank you!
