Private job lets me apply and then says it's private!

I just spent ages applying for a job - I was able to click "Submit a proposal".  When I did submit, I got the message that the job is private.

  • I cannot see anywhere that indicates it is private. 
  • Why am I able to see the job and apply if it is invitation only?
  • Why does it not specify that it is invitation only?

 

A huge waste of my time.

Sad face.

Don't "spend ages" - things change... fast

 

  1. It wasn't private when you first started to apply. It was set to private / invite only while you were applying
  2. It wasn't private when you first started to apply.
  3. It probably does now if you refresh it / reload the page.
