Job Posting Closed on LinkedIn, Can I Still Apply?

Job Posting Closed on LinkedIn, Can I Still Apply?
The following question came up recently in one of my JSAP (Job Search Accelerator Program) group coaching sessions:
“I saw a job I’m perfect for on LinkedIn, but it’s closed. Should I still apply?”
The answer is, “It depends.” Below is a video where I map out what to consider when you see a job that is closed and what steps you can take to make the most of the situation. Any time we see a job we feel we are a match for, we need to do something. But, if it’s closed, the steps we should take become less clear. Until now! Watch my video and I’ll tell you step-by-step what to do.
