Why is a job showing up as Pending?
If you see a job with a status of Pending like this:
It means that there are already a sufficient number of applicants to the job, and we aren't accepting additional applicants at the moment.
If you received an email notification about a job and clicked through from that email and see the job as Pending it means that the other applications came in before you got there!
One of the reasons why we're not allowing a lot of applicants per each job is because it can potentially waste time for either the job applicant or the client. We all know what it's like to post a job to Upwork and to have to sift through 20 applications to pick the right person.
The goal with Commerce Hero is to have a smaller number of higher quality applicants to make the process of selecting someone easier.
