What are Connects? How are they different from the job application quota?


Upwork has replaced the job application quota with Connects, a new system of applying to jobs.

Connects are virtual tokens you need to submit in order to apply for a job. If you’re invited to apply or are being rehired, you won’t need to use any Connects. All other applications require anywhere from 1 to 5 Connects, depending on factors such as the size and type of job. Initially, most jobs require about 2 Connects.

Unlike the job application quota, the number of Connects you get depends on your membership plan and is refreshed on a monthly basis.
