30

Occasionally see ads with a closing date already passed. Just wondering is there a field holding job ad's valid-to date when employer submit a new job, so that outdated job can be filtered out?

    Yeah, they are semi-useless noise, and oughta be automatically withdrawn by the system IMHO. – lpapp Jun 18 '14 at 13:07
  • Do you have an example? There may be a few minutes of caching, but it shouldn't be very noticeable. It's possible there's a bug. – David Fullerton Jun 18 '14 at 13:34
  • Where do you see a "close date" exactly? – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Jun 18 '14 at 13:44

    @DavidFullerton, two examples: this one showing on the page this morning; and this one is on for now – Bolu Jun 18 '14 at 13:52
  • The issue not a "bug" per se. We sell the majority of our listings in 30 day chunks. These are examples of a customer buy a 30 day job listing, having an expiration date 20 days into the 30 day run, and not expiring the listing. – Juice Jun 18 '14 at 14:36

    @Juice well, OP here marked this as feature request not a bug. Can't you "force expire" a job listing on your side? – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Jun 19 '14 at 14:57
  • We can. This is why we also have a flagging system in place when visiting the listing. – Juice Jun 19 '14 at 14:59
