TOMS RIVER, N.J. - JerseyDesk -- Do you ever wonder if you are using the right job boards? Many contain ghost job postings, outdated listings, and shady job descriptions that can waste valuable job search time. What if you could confidently navigate your job search with confidence and find the real opportunities worthy of your time?

WHAT IS A GHOST JOB POSTING?

Imagine spending hours crafting the perfect resume and cover letter, only to discover you applied for a ghost - a phantom vacancy that never truly existed!

WHY DO COMPANIES POST GHOST JOBS?

1. Filling the Pipeline: Even if a specific position is currently filled or on hold, keeping the job description visible allows companies to gauge ongoing interest in particular skill sets and can ensure a pool of readily available potential candidates or conduct exploratory job interviews to gain competitive salary information.

2. Cost and Time Savings: Managing job listings on various platforms incurs additional recruitment costs. Companies may opt to keep listings active or automatically reposted to maximize their investment, even if the role has been filled.

3. Maintaining Visibility: By leaving listings live, companies can attract more traffic to their websites or job board profiles or appear to show employees that the company is hiring help for overworked staff.

4. Unintentional Outdated Listings: While some companies strategically keep listings active, others inadvertently end up with outdated postings due to slow updating of fill status or failure to close old, open job requisitions.

HOW TO SAVE TIME AND FIND LEGIT JOBS ONLINE

1. Check Reddit or other sites to determine if the company is growing or has a continuous need to fill a position due to turnover.

2. Leverage job boards like LinkedIn that allow filtering by date posted to give clues for continuously posted jobs.

3. Be wary of postings that require applying through unfamiliar websites or have uncommon application methods.

4. Watch for jobs with catchy titles, vague descriptions, promises of remote work with no location details, frequent reposting, no contact person, or next steps.

5. Use job boards like LinkedIn (direct employer submissions) and Google Jobs (company-sanctioned listings) that emphasize verification.

6. Companies advertise their legitimate open positions exclusively on their web pages. If a job seems too good to be true, verify its existence on the company website.

7. Ask a recruiter with a politely worded request. Reaching out can also help your networking efforts!
