	Sometimes, when hiring people who do not have US citizenship, an
	employer must demonstrate that they tried to find an equally
	qualified US citizen for the position, and so they must advertize
	positions for which they have no intention of hiring. Also, some
	organizations, particularly government agencies must advertise a
	position where they already have someone internally they want to hire.
