Do we say internal job posting (IJP) takes place at a company? Like "IJP has taken place in my company so I have applied for the post of manager" or "IJP is going on in my company at the moment."


Please check my sentences.

I'd never heard of IJP before but if it's used where you are (in English sentences) then I would expect something like "Our company takes part in IJP" or "Our company has some IJP staff".

Out of curiosity, does it mean that your company sends some of its staff to work overseas or that they employ people from overseas to work in India?

Apologies! I misread post #1 and thought it stood for "International Job Posting". Please ignore my previous response.

Companies do not 'take part' in internal job posting. It's simply a policy of accepting applications for job from people already employed in a company.

Could you please correct my sentence?

You could write My company posts jobs available to current employees. We call these "internal job postings" or IJPs. An IJP is available right now.

If we have to say "IJP" takes place in the month of November every year then what do we need to say? Do we say "IJP is becoming available next month. You can apply for a post"?

What does "Post" mean here?

Your sentence is OK except that it needs an article before "IJP".

A post is a particular job.

If you use the definite article in the first sentence, you probably want the same article in the second. The IJP means the speaker is thinking of a specific job posting. They would normally be thinking of the same one in the second sentence.

Similarly, if you begin with the indefinite article, the second sentence would usually use the same one.

There is no need for the present continuous to indicate the future here and no need to effectively repeat "post" in the second sentence if your listener knows what "IJP" is.

An IJP will be available next month. You can apply for it.
