Job Listings Abound, but Many Are Fake
In an uncertain economy, companies post ads for jobs that they might not really be trying to fill.
This… doesn’t seem great. Hiring managers prioritizing their own time over countless other people’s.
“Hiring managers acknowledge as much. In a survey of more than 1,000 hiring managers last summer, 27% reported having job postings up for more than four months. Among those who said they advertised job postings that they weren’t actively trying to fill, close to half said they kept the ads up to give the impression the company was growing, according to Clarify Capital, a small-business-loan provider behind the study. One-third of the managers who said they advertised jobs they weren’t trying to fill said they kept the listings up to placate overworked employees.”Posted on 2023-03-21T03:57:47+0000
