Why on earth would you want to do that? You can put anyting you like in your cover letter, but your suggestion is the most negative I have yet seen, and in any case would not get your connects returned. 

 

You will get your connects back if Upwork delists a job because the client has  violated the ToS, or if the client actually cancels the job without hiring. This does not mean if the client disappears. 

 

There is also this  latest communication about connects,  but it is ambiguous at best: https://community.upwork.com/t5/Announcements/New-test-to-refund-Connects-on-no-hire-contracts/td-p/...

Why would you really do that? I mean this will affect your proposal negatively and would create a useless impresion on the client. I would suggest that either send a proposal with full effort and passion collectively blended and poured into it and trust me this works. Before any other thing what you need to do is be motivated enough and apply to a job with full hope, infact the confidence that you will get the job no matter what, if you are new and have less job experience, be convincing enough for the client to be shortlisted. 

By asking for rejection so that you can refund your connects is a blunder I would not want you to make. That automatically creates a losing impression in it self. Be confident and be positively charged full of passion thats how you approach a client and hope for the best!

 

Best of luck man.

If a client hires someone else, then you don't get your connects back. So it does not matter if the client formally declines your proposal, or simply closes the job posting.
