Hi Abdulla,

 

Connects are returned only when the job is cancelled either by the client or by Upwork team without hire. You can find more information here.

I know that, thank you, but I mean - there are zero interviews for 5 weeks, where upwork usually close jobs? After 2 months? 3? 
Sometimes i get back connections from closed jobs, but i dont know - who closed it, client or upwork, and i interested about upwork polytics.

Abdulla,

 

Jobs are automatically expire after 30 days of inactivity on that job. Connects are not returned in that case.

So if clients post job, doesn't interview and doesn't hire someone - connects are not returned? I think it is unfair - spent connects with 0% chance to get job. Is there are some penalty for thi kind of client? Cause I right now have 6 jobs with 0 interview in job from 1st-7th June.

And one more question - if job expire - it disspaear from proposals page or something other notification about that?

no responses from a proposal is a reflection on you not the system

Abdulla, if the job expires, you will see that your proposal is moved from Active to Archived folder.

Thanks, and again - Is there are some penalty for clients who POST job AND DOESN'T INTERVIVIEW/HIRE someone?

Cause i lost about 20 connects for this kind of clients, when I was 0 jobs newbie. And it really made newbie's life unhappy.
