EstateJobs Server Incident 9/6-9/17

September 18th, 2016 by admin


For the first time in 10+ years there was a major technical issue for EstateJobs. A rare server crash at the job board’s data center wiped out current and backup drives simultaneously on Saturday the 17th of September. (This affected multiple sites on the host, not just ours.) We were fortunate that we use a very professional company to run the database and they were able to restore a 3rd redundant backup of the site. Unfortunately, all data that was added or changed from 9/6 to 9/17 was not recovered.

The second issue is that all jobs emailed by our “job agent” feature during that time are now invalid. You may see incorrect information if you click through any of the links. Please ignore the jobs and job numbers from those emails.

We will be working to update all employers and job seekers about the issue and over the next few working days should have everyone back up to speed. Starting today, keep an eye out for any jobs that you applied for during the missing period. They will list as new when re-posted, and you will be able to apply again.

We regret the inconvenience this will cause some of our valued clients and candidates, but we are thankful that a potentially catastrophic loss was limited to just a few days of data.

If you experience further issues with the site, please email or call and we will reply as quickly as possible.


Thank you,
