I just spent 15 minutes tailoring a proposal for an editing job that had been posted 8 minutes earlier, and voila! I hit Submit and got a message saying the job is no longer available.
There was nothing said in the description about it being a rush hire. It was a rather detailed job description, and I'm absolutely stunned that a decision was made within 25 minutes of posting.
I'm not complaining, just feeling a little frustrated. Now that I've lifted my jaw off the floor, I figured I'd share.
I'm sorry to hear that. Upwork has a lot of freelancers and a bunch of freelancers might have submitted proposals earlier than you did and got hired immediately. Client may have closed the job post because he/she already hired someone or the client closed the job for some other reason.
Maybe that was it. Hard to imagine that, considering they wanted specific examples of situations, etc., that they could have interviewed and hired someone within 30 minutes.
Thanks for responding.
