Today’s FAQ is broken down into two parts that address the umbrella question, Why doesn’t my job posting go up automatically? Without further ado…
FAQ 9.1 : Why does it take a few hours and/or a few days for my posting to go up?
Answer: Good question! When you submit your posting, it’s actually added to a queue that includes all of the other pending positions awaiting approval on our end. Depending on the day and our staff availability, that queue may have just a handful of postings in it, or it may have 100+ postings in it. And while we try to move them as quickly as possible (many are cleared within hours of posting), on occasion there is heavy traffic on ZotLink, or other internal Career Center demands (events, university holidays, etc.) that may contribute to a delay of a few business days. When this happens, we’ll often pull additional team members off their duties and ask for their help with approving jobs, to ensure that your position is posted as quickly as possible.
FAQ 9.2: Well, why do I/my job postings even have to go through an approval process before I can use ZotLink?
Answer: It’s in our students’ best interest for us to screen and verify employers and the opportunities they present. We do our best to ensure that each employer registration is legitimate, and that each posting meets our qualifications. By giving us the time to do that, we can trust that you agree our mission to make our students’ needs a priority.
Hopefully this sheds some light on things!
Until next time,
