As a job hunter, I am confused. I’ve signed up on a variety of online job boards that email me lists of the latest job openings.

Some of these boards send the same email, containing the same job openings, over and over. What’s the point?

And some boards send job openings that don’t exist. I click on an opening’s link in the email, and the link takes me to the job board, which informs me that the job is no longer open. Why didn’t the job board automatically delete the job link from its emails?

Job hunting is full of mysteries.
