Why do agencies post the same job like every couple months without hiring?

Many reasons; 1. They're enormous, and it might not be the same job even if the description seems to be, 2. The have a lot of turnover because they suck or creatives are flakes, 3. They're posting jobs that are already filled internally, but they are forced to make a show of looking for external candidates, 4. They don't actually have a job open, but want to see who's available, 5. Like 4, but they're doing it so as to appear to be thriving, 6. They are picky to the point of incompetence, 7. They already paid for X number of listings so had to let it run, 8. They want whoever currently has that job at the agency to worry.

All sounds about right CD1, except 8... that’s some weird sadistic type sh*t. 😳 A good agency should indicate if a role is posted for more exploratory purposes versus an actual hire, though. If they’re just posting to pipeline candidates under the guise of a real job opening, that also pretty sh*tty.

A variant of 4 - for internal recruiters to build their networks so when they are hiring, they have a head start on the process. by the time a hire is officially approved, it needs to be filled ASAP so [some] recruiters like to build their networks.

9. It's a trap to see if any of their existing employees apply (obviously in this case they wouldn't post under their real agency name).

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

I romanticized being a consultant while working in industry. Then I got a consulting job, a couple promos, and now the idea of consulting just makes me roll my eyes.

Great company, great co-workers, and interesting engagements.... I can’t be the only one feeling this way. Time to exit or is this a phase?
