(12:13:48 AM) *** adam joined the chat ***
(12:14:01 AM) adam: Well, that's complicated. It depends on how much time I get in the office.
(12:14:27 AM) Visitor 13544610: Oh! Got it! May I ask when the last time you updated it was?
(12:14:37 AM) adam: At least a week ago.
(12:14:49 AM) adam: I have 2 ads that are pending, just haven't had a time to approve them.
(12:15:09 AM) Visitor 13544610: Ok! But usually if they're up there they are still available and current?
(12:15:25 AM) adam: yes, they expire after 90 days automatically.
(12:15:55 AM) Visitor 13544610: Awesome! Thanks for the information! :)
(12:16:00 AM) adam: any time.

Basically, we update the job bank as soon as we can. With that said, there are a few factors in play that folks need to know about.
- Jobs posted by organizations automatically get saved as "pending" within our system.
- Each job is reviewed. That's a manual process, I normally read them right away and if I spot a problem email the person submitting it as soon as I can. That's pretty rare though.
- Part of that process is formatting the job post for uniformity. I change the title, the URL, I standardize the HTML, stuff like that.
- When I post a job it automatically posts to our Facebook page and I manually post it to Twitter. Sometimes I put it on LinkedIn or Google Plus, too.
With all of that said it's important to remember that our Job Bank is a free service. It's free for churches and it's free for youth workers. So since it is a free service and not a paid service, I usually try to fit it in as soon as I can... but it's not revenue bearing, it's not going to make me work late or stop what I'm doing quite the same was as if it were revenue bearing. Fair?
