For the first time I felt I needed to change something in my proposal message for a job.
So I cancelled my first proposal and then created the second proposal and submitted it.
The problem I am having now is when I go to the job page again there is NO "you have already applied to this job" pop up message. I can still click on "submit a proposal" and it leads me to the proposal page. I guess if I were to fill it out again I would finally get an error message when I try to submit that (third) proposal. I didn't try it.
However, on "my propsals" page the resubmitted proposal is listed correctly and I can change the terms as I am used to.
Can someone confirm that this is normal behavior that a resubmitted proposal does not trigger the "you have already applied" pop up. Does the client see my second proposal? Will he see that I cancelled my first proposal?
Am I expecting too much if I want to see that reassuring pop up after having invested (or wasted) 2 extra connects for this job?
For anyone who cares.. the job had 150 proposals within half a day (it seems like a good job) and I really thought long about applying for it. After I submitted my proposal I scrolled down and read the reviews more carefully and found the potential name of the client. With so many applicants I thought it was worth to include the client's name at the beginning to stand out as much as I can.
Small update: my name appeared on the job page in the list of proposals just now, so I guess it went through. I can still click on apply and still don't get the pop up message. So I guess it's normal behaviour...
Confirmation/explanation would still be appreciated. Is this intended behaviour or a bug? Mods?
It's correct that you can't edit your proposal.
What the solution is?
Withdraw your proposal and then you will be able to submit your proposal again.
You will have to sacrifice 2 connections.
I hope that you understand how to resubmit again.
Hello, please i have the same issue. I withdrew my proposal to change some things, now it says I can't apply to the job because i withdrew a boosted proposal. Please help
re: "I tried reasubmitting the proposal after correcting it to corret something,. But the option to submit the proposal is disabled when I try to do so. What can I do?"
Many people have similarly reported being unable to resubmit.
Dont withdraw your proposal. Don't plan on being able to resubmit.
