Online Job Boards Don’t Give Enough Information

3

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:
