Online Job Boards Don't Give Enough Information

Dear Experts, I continue with my job search online. But I've found many job announcements do not give details on the position -- they just give a brief description and say to apply online. Some do not even give the company name. How can I know whether or not I should apply with so little information? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#230 Unfortunately, is problem w many job boards. Instead, research jobs directly w companies. Consider using LinkUp.com. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#230 Quit applying on JOB BOARDS! Make a list of companies YOU want to work for. Then target 'em aggressively. (@beneubanks) Q#230 Research poster n job by looking at website of e-mail address (what's behind @ symbol) n look up similar positions. (@kgrantcareers) Q#230 These are likely recruiting firms trying to ensure they get a paid for a placement. Write & ask for more into if needed. (@gradversity) Q#230 Don't spend a lot of time on job boards. If there is not much info, don't apply. (@keppie_careers) Q#230 Research company online, then apply & be sure to fill out EVERY field. Ups chance of app being looked at. (@jtodonnell) Q#230 If u have comp. name research it. No? search 4 similar positions 2 see what u find. Apply & find out more.
