Why would a job show as "closed" for months?

If a job has been showing as "closed" for months and has not been reposted, does that mean I still may potentially be awarded the job?  Or is it more likely that the client also posted the job on other sites and chose the talent from another site?

It's possible! Here are some reasons it may be 'closed' for a really long time:

1 - The client doesn't need the job done ASAP, and was simply scouting out their options and will come back later when they actually need the job done.

2 - Internal fighting about what direction to go in with the project. This could halt a talent being hired for a long time.

3 - Sudden budget loss. The client may suddenly find themselves without the money to proceed with hiring a VO, and has to wait.

4 - Simple indecision! The client may be caught between a few voices they really like.
