    Posting Company???

    What is exactly a "posting company" in the context of jobs? I think it is the company that is currently advertising an available position, but I am not sure. Is it?

    It doesn't sound natural to me. Where did you find it?

    It would make sense to me if they were advertising on the internet, but I would probably use the company posting in most contexts.

    ...Or the company that [made the post/posted the ad]

    b

    PS Even when talking about paper, this use of 'poster' is not unknown, but rather dated. The only fossil I can think of is in the warning 'Bill posters will be prosecuted' (in which 'bill posters' are 'people who stick notices on walls').

    "The company posting...", Ok. What about "the advertising company" (also relating to jobs)?

    Well, that narrows it down to a mere several billion sources. Next time, please take note of the context in which you find a phrase you are going to ask us about.

    The context does not matter in this case, since emsr2d2 confirmed that it is not natural. I read it somewhere on the internet. I would like to use "the company posting" or "the advertising company". Which would be the correct one? Or natural.

    Context always matters. Please provide a sentence containing the phrase you want to use.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Ok. Example: "For further details on the job vacancy, please contact the advertising company" (we are reading some details of a job vacancy on a job board).
