This is one thing that is driving me crazy and I am not sure what to do.
I have applied for endless jobs and notice jobs that I applied to is showing up weeks later, I never heard from the recruiters and notice it will show 100+ applicants have applied. What I don't understand is, one if you have that many applicants send out notices to the ones that you don't want instead of hanging onto them, two, once you have your candidate(s) of your choice put the position on hold to avoid external applicants applying. This drives me up the wall to continue to see the positions open for the same jobs. There are people out there that are dying to work and not sit at home and collect unemployment. If you are a recruiter please let me know your thoughts.
