Hi Alaa,

 

Connects are only returned when the job is cancelled by the client or Upwork team without a hire.

While some clients take time to hire on their jobs and often come back to review candidates weeks after they posted a job, postings with no activity for more than 30 days are automatically closed.

Please include return connects by withdrawn.

1. The purpose of the connect system is to limit how often freelancers can apply to jobs. If you could apply to a job and get connects back upon withdrawing the application, every job would get spammed with 100+ proposals.

 

2. You are competing against other freelancers all using the same rules. If you got your connects back on a failed proposal, so would they. You could apply more but so they could they, and you'd be no further ahead. Clients would just be buried in (mostly terrible) proposals.

They already are.

 

Upwork needs some sort of quality control. All these fake profiles saying that they are fluent in English when they can't even type 2 sentences is just pathetic.

If you upgrade to Freelancer Plus you get extra connects and can actually buy some if you want. Freelancer Plus is only $10/month.

What Connects will be returned after 30 days if automatically closed?

 

Thanks

Connects are not returned for jobs that timed out (were automatically closed)
