Is it a common policy for holding co agencies to post a job for the first time even if they’ve identified their candidate via referral? I know of brands that do that, but curious if agencies do.

If the agency / holding co. is a government contractor, they’re held to strict standards around OFCCP compliance. Even if they know who they’re hiring, they might have to post the opening and at least make it look like they considered other applicants.

Agencies post the job for the candidate to do the formality of an application.

Not usually. With most applicant tracking systems, there are ways to do that without posting it publicly. You can usually send them a private link to an unposted job.

Some states have laws that jobs must be posted online for anyone to apply to for a certain amount of time. Even if they plan to promote within they still need to post by law in some areas as one example.

Cold calling agencies. Is it weird to google/LinkedIn a specific person (HOP, say) and dial by name, directly call them?

For freelancers trying to network, this seems to be the only way in if you have no contacts there. Any thoughts or advice appreciated.
