I can relate to Gloria. I sent my resume online to the Record Bee,(twice), to apply for a job that required Peachtree experience. A company I worked for in the Bay Area hired me to set their business up on this system. I work with Peachtree for six years myself and trained personnel as well.
I thought my experience, at the very least, would get me an interview. I never got a response at all, even after sending my resume twice.

Why post jobs online if the employers don't respond?

You have to take the initiative and pick up the phone sometimes, not just rely on the 'net. Things are tough all over. Get off the damned computer!

This newspaper censors inputs and does not accept comments, letters, opinion columns or features from conservatives. Is this America? You can't prove it with this poor excuse for a newspaper.

It sounds like you're bent out of shape.

There are a couple of inaccuracies in this editorial piece. Edjoin.com is not a job posting sight, it is a parked page that derives its traffic from assuming that edjoin.org is a .com site. It has nothing but ads (not classified or job ads, just ads). Secondly, EDJOIN.org is not a job aggregator site. It is a fully featured job posting and applicant tracking system. The jobs are posted directly by districts and education agencies. The site is specifically for jobs in California education. Contact information to the HR departments of the hiring districts is listed on each posting. In addition, there is a job seeker helpdesk that operates during the week to handle technical issues and support.
