    i was just applying to a job through a middle man and the job stated that the deadline was the 2nd of june. after working tirelessly on my cv and cover letter to make it match the job description perfectly apparently they have already hired someone?!!

    im kind of angry as it said the deadline for them recieving applications was the 2nd of june

    am i wrong to think this?

    thanks in advance

    Employers can (and do) hire people before the deadline given.

    From an employer's point of view, they're probably not going to wait if they have received enough suitable CVs.

    Represents the latest possible date they are willing to consider applications.

    I don't know, I'm not the employer in question, but probably not if the position is already filled.

    ......
    Employers can make the deadline earlier if they have the right quantity or quality of applications. That's the risk you run if you leave your application to the last minute.

    I can understand why you are angry, but ultimately it is just tough. They found someone already. Keep looking, and better luck next time.
