Hey guys, I'm new here and I'm keep getting the mails that the job is CLOSED or EXPIRED. Sometimes I receive the message within 24 hours. How a job post work on upwork? is there any expiry period here? what should I keep in mind while placing the bid?

It means that the Job is closed now by client or by Upwork. Actully it could be for certain reasons if Upwork deletes a Job then you will get your connects back. After one month of inactivity on any Job will also cause the Job deletion/Expired.

If you have applied for a Job and someone else is hired then also Job will be closed and you can see that in your archive proposals.

Jobs are not necessarily closed when someone is hired. That's up to the client. They may leave it open for more hires or just because they don't think to close it.

I post a job.

I hire a freelancer.

 

When I hire officially, Upwork posts a dialogue box requiring me to choose between closing the job posting now, or keeping it open.

 

Every time I hire, I must choose between those two options.

Sometimes people hire someoen locally or off another job posting site. I think they just don´t bother to go back to all of the places they posted the job and close all of those listings. They just let them expire. It would help us if they canceled them.

I have several jobs listed as in progress that are completed because they did not close them out. That can be a double edge sword. People may see it as being good because you are working. Others may see it as you are too buys. I guess that would depend on individual perception and how many jobs that are completed are still listed as in progress.
