    A position I applied for was posted on June 24th, I applied on June 30th, I just got an e-mail from the P apologizing for the position still being listed but it has been filled. I just checked the website--it's still there, they know it's filled, but hmm...let's keep it up and see how many more resumes we get? This is so irritating. How hard can it be to delete the posting. UGH!!!!

    Same thing happened to me today. I called a school to try to get an interview and the P said..."huh, its still posted. well we interviewed for that and someone accepted. huh. Thats weird. They were supposed to take that down last month. Guess I'll give them a call back."

    So it was supposed to be removed from the list last month. How frustrating.

    I KNOW I'M RESPONDING IN CAPS.....

    THIS IS A HUGE FRUSTRATION FOR ME AS WELL!!!

    ALSO, WHY CAN'T THEY TAKE THE POSTINGS DOWN THAT HAVE "EXPIRED?"

    When a posting is still up AFTER the expiration date I apply thinking the position is still available...I've learned it's just laziness!!!

    I have a feeling that they stay up until the Board approves the new teacher. I'm not sure but that's my guess.

    Our school board does the same thing. As insiders, we all know the listings are "fictional" but others don't and many waste their time and money calling, mailing, faxing, and sending in copies of expensive resume packets. It's not right. I would LOVE to know why so many places do this? Is this just to make it look like the profession isn't saturated?

    I agree with others that a lot of districts will wait for the board to approve the candidate to take down the posting. And I agree that it is frustrating!

    I know that is the truth!! I emailed the head of teacher recruitment for one of the districts here. She told me that the principals have already had people in mind or that they have recommended people for the job and is waiting on the board or for everything to come back on them through hr. It is all about who you know though. Principals here don't come back until Wed. so I will be stopping by a couple of schools that have listings.:D

    this has been a common occurance in my search and it is by far the most frustrating thing because it takes so little time and effort to just put up a notice about it.

    I totally agree. 95% of positions posted are already filled or are not going to be filled through the website it is posted on.

    I'm making up stats but it's true!
