How do I know if a Job Posting I bid/applied for, has been taken?

I applied for 3 Job Postings, and it has been 2 weeks since. I do not know if the jobs have been taken already; will they be on my profile forever? How do I get the postings off.

No, they won't be on your profile forever. They'll move to "archived" when the job is closed or expires. There's no reason to concern yourself about those old bids unless you've decided you wouldn't want the job after all, and then you can withdraw the proposal.

 

Often, the client won't close the job after hiring someone, or never hires anyone at all. But, sometimes the client is just busy or hires someone who doesn't work out and they'll come back and make you an offer long after you've moved on to other projects and forgotten about them.

Successful Upwork contractors don't ask this question. They don't look back. They don't wait by the phone.

 

Bid on jobs. Then keep bidding on jobs. Forget about them once you bid on them.

 

If a client contacts you to hire you or interview you, give them your full attention.

Not what I asked, Preston, but thank you for the reply.
