Hello. I am new here and one thing I don't understand. 

I am new here and one thing I don't understand. 

When I see "Job is Closed" in archived proposals, what does it mean? When I open these proposals I can see that no one was hired, but the job is closed. What does it mean? Whether the client gave up a job or what...

Thank you in advance.

Hi Anita,

If there were no hires made, then it likely means the job post is closed and no hiring will take place.

When the job gets closed , does the freelancer get back their connects count ?. Since nobody got the job.

 no, only when upwork closes the job due to some rule violation.

Hi Rofiqul,

 

If you see the job in your Job Feed or Search it's still open for proposals and you should be able to apply to it.

 It means that the client interviewed one freelancer.

I tried to also research on this. My finding is that when a job is marked closed, it means that someone has been hired for that position. But the job activities may still show the number of interviews the clients had before the job was closed. Job declined mean that your proposal was not accepted for consideration by the client.

Upwork closes open jobs after 30 days of inactivity, no matter if somebody was hired or not. 

If a client hires one or more freelancers on a job, he can still leave the job unclosed, hiring does not mean closing. 

Closed jobs can have hires on them, no hires, interviews, no interviews.

If a job is closed, can the connector get back or take the connector back with jobs, they can use them in another place.
