"NOW THAT WE FILLED THE SLOT, LET'S RUN THE AD."
Although we do scour the web on a regular basis to find jobs, our best leads come directly from managers. They call us for a variety of reasons, but foremost is the fact that they don't want to be swamped by the hundreds of tapes which would undoubtedly result from posting an ad on the internet.
By calling us they know they will get only one or two qualified candidates for a position. That saves them the hassle of sifting through a mountain of reels.
Once the position is filled, they contact their HR department and say, "The slot is filled. You can run the ad now." Such posts are merely vehicles by which the EEO officers fill their files with applications from minority candidates.
So, it's true: sometimes an ad is placed AFTER the job is filled. In fact, this happens all the time.
