For years, our policy on new job postings was to review them prior to putting them up on the site. We’ve decided to change our approach to ‘passive moderation’ – or reviewing listings after they’re live. So now, once you pay, your listing will appear immediately.
Why the change? In the past, it was a necessity, since we had to take payment over the phone or through the mail. That’s just the way we’d always done things. Now that we get payment immediately, the only concerns are spam or inappropriate listings. Spam is extremely unlikely, since we require payment before the job appears. And as far as inappropriate listings go, I can’t recall any in the last 10 years. If one does get posted, we can always refund the company and take it down.
The most frequent question Liz and I get is, “I paid, why isn’t my listing live?” This brings an end to that, and should make the experience of putting jobs on our site much quicker/easier.
Thanks, as always, for your patronage, and supporting our affiliated groups.
