Digiday: Those Job Postings? FAAAAAKE

This may help explain my 66% no-response rate over the 87 days of my unemployment:

“When I was laid off from my agency I saw job postings for a different office so I asked to apply for those open positions but they said they were fake job postings. Apparently it’s to show clients that we’re doing well. They also use the postings to get people to interview, show interest and then put them on the books so that later on they can recruit from that pool without having to hire recruiters and pay them. I’ve heard of multiple agencies doing that, using job postings to tell clients that they’re fine or doing well when they’re really not. It’s all fake. “
