I am new at this and am trying to understand how it works.
I want to know the same answer!
I would like to know the answer to that question as well.
Hi Ruthie, Dan, and Tara,
Thanks for your question!
In short, yes, "closed" means that your application is no longer open and that you have not been selected for the position.
However, there are several different reasons a posting might become closed! I actually wrote an article on this here: https://www.teachaway.com/2016/03/01/what-does-it-mean-if-my-application-closed
Check that out and let me know if you have any questions beyond what you find in the blog post.
All the best in each of your job searches!
