Actually you just HAVE TO close your job posting as soon as you've assigned it- to save yourself from receiving more applications and applicants from wasting time sending them to you.

I'm new to the job posting system, having agreed with a client that I would outsource a job that is outside my particular sphere of competence. So I posted a Proz job, initially saying that it was open for quotes for 48 hours - but after 24 hours I already have a large number of offers and have identified a very promising translator among them. Am I bound to keep the job open for the promised 48 hours, or can I declare it closed now and go with the translator I've found? - I can't find anything on this subject in the rules and I don't want to make myself unpopular by doing something that isn't approved of, but on the other hand I'd like to get on with working with the chosen translator as soon as possible. Can anyone tell me what the etiquette is on this one?
