Why are archived jobs still visible on some job platforms?

Answer

Sometimes it may happen that job advertisements you have already archived in JOIN are still visible on a job board, in social media or on a similar platform. This can have different reasons and requires different approaches to solving the problem.

You can, however, find out whether the problem is caused by JOIN within a few moments — by means of a quick and simple trick:

Click “Apply now”. If you get redirected to a page other than JOIN at this point, it means that the job advertisement was not published by us, but crawled by a third party. In this case, please refer to the respective platform.

In case you discovered the archived job ad on LinkedIn, we can send you instructions via email on how to stop the crawling there. Please email us at contact@join.com.
