If this is in relation to the requirements in the OFCCP's veteran regulations (41 C.F.R. § 60-300.5(a)(2)) be aware that there is an exception to the external posting requirement for positions that the employer intends to fill from within the organization. So internal, "tap-on-the-shoulder" progressions are exempt. See 41 C.F.R. § 60-300.5(a)(6).
