Invalid and misleading job positions: what is it and how do we prevent it
HIREBEAT INC. treats policy violations and invalid jobs very seriously in order to protect job seekers, employers, and recruiters. We pay close attention to job posting behavior by analyzing, including but not limited to, the employer’s company name, website, job posting contents, to determine whether they fit a pattern of use that might consider an invalid and misleading job position.
More specifically, we sample and review potential invalid and misleading job positions, and it triggers a quality assurance (QA) process, where we look for any invalid or misleading job positions from HIREBEAT’s users, including but not limited to:
- Adult content websites;
- Malicious websites;
- Malware websites;
Additional Information Some Job Postings may be subject to review; provided, that HIREBEAT is under no obligation to review any Job Postings. Job posters may be required to revise their Job Postings to comply with these Job Posting Rules or to provide additional information to allow potential applicants to clearly understand the nature and scope of the posting

What does a job posting partner do?
