Everyone is. Trying to see what they can catch. Many firms (mine included) have pissed off high performers who are looking at what else is out there.

I wouldn’t say “just”. That was a year ago. Most of those were advisory and of the tax people it was a lot of people at the director level. Tax is doing really well and we have had several people start in my office since remote working started and I know we are interviewing for others. Also, jobs don’t get reposted automatically. Every job that’s posted on there is a true opening, they did have to remove a couple where the need wasn’t large enough but there are a lot of locations/practices where there is a big need.

HR’s are just posting fake jobs so they can look like they have work and not get laid off.

Most of the job posts are probably automatically reposted after the previous post expired. It’s easier to let it auto post and collect resumes now then to take down the post.
