Hi,

how long back in time is it possible to search for a job-posting? I just wanted to look for German and only got one, dating January 20. What to do if I need a former one?

Thanks for hints!

Charlotte

Blue Board Jan 25, 2008

If you know the outsourcer's name, you may find them in the Blue Board. Enter the name of the oursourcer to find their profile. On the right hand side of the page, there's a box: Past Job postings. Click on 'More info' and you'll find a list of job postings by that particular outsourcer. Don't know how far in the past, but the ones I've checked dated pretty far back.

Yes, but... Jan 26, 2008

Hi Margreet,

thanks for this tip but unfortunately the outsourcer I'm looking for does not have an entry there. As far as I can see there is also no entry in Users.

I tried a search using the URL of the job-posting under "search Proz.com" (fortunately I kept it!) but this did not return anything at all - of course, because there is no field like "job" or similar to be checked...

What could I try next?

Charlotte

Ask staff Jan 26, 2008

If this is really important to you, I think you'd best send an e-mail to staff, give them the URL and see if they can retrieve it for you.
If not, they should at least be able to tell you for how long job postings are kept on the site.

Good luck & have a nice weekend!
Margreet

You can't see closed jobs [amended: you can't see squashed jobs] Jan 26, 2008

Hi,
Generally you can't see anymore jobs which expired. The jobs which are closed (by the poster) or squashed (by moderators) are no longer visible.

If you have an url for the job posting - why doing a search for it? Just click the url. You will see the posting (if the job is still open) or a message 'This job have been closed'.

HTH,
Magda

PS It is very unlikely that there is no BB entry for a poster of the job at ProZ.com. BB entries are created by default.

Hi Magda,

you're right, I did that but got the message that it had been squashed.

As for the BB, I could not find the agency's name nor that of the person concerned. Sorry to ask but since when are BB entries "created by default"? This has not always been the case because - I admit, a long time ago - I had to create one for an agency I was working with.

BTW, would it be possible to include your "The jobs which are closed (by the poster) or squashed (by moderators) are no longer visible." into the FAQ (at least I couldn't find anything about this)?

Have a nice week-end, too,

Charlotte

On creating BB records + sorry, I mislead you Jan 26, 2008

Hi again Charlotte,
When the job is posted, the system automatically links it with the relevant BB record, if it exists. If it's a new poster and the system doesn't find any BB record, the Jobs/BB moderators create one and link it with the post.

I checked again about closed jobs and, unfortunately, I gave you a wrong info in my previous post: in fact, closed jobs ARE still visible. Only squashed ones are not (which is quite obvious, I guess). The Job Posting History (which can be checked from the BB record) however, is a member-only feature. It is explained in this FAQ

Hope I got it all right this time

Best,
Magda
