i agree with you, it makes no sense, im new to upwork and cannot land a full time job i keep having to buy connects so i stopped buying, they should have atleast reply to say the application is declined and delete the job post so people dont have to waste their connects.
You can view how many people have been hired for a job before you submit a proposal. Always check if "Hired: 1" displays on the job description before applying. If it sounds like they only need to hire a single freelancer, and it shows 1 person hired, pass it.
Yes I agree , upwork should change the rules on this ,if a propsal with more the 4 connects goes after 5 days they may give choice to get back connects ,, hope they will do needful in this chaotic days
I agree, I am new to Upwork myself and have bid on several projects. I have been ghosted on all but 1. If a client does not respond within 7 days Upwork should return our "connects" to us.
