Monster.com Says It Won't Ban Third-Party Ads That Discourage Job Applications From The Unemployed

Post by Guest on Mon Aug 15, 2011 12:58 pm

In July, USAction began circulating an online petition imploring employment websites such as Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com to reject ads from third-party employers that require applicants to be "currently employed." As employment websites, Monster and Careerbuilder don't actually post the ads, but do allow them to be up on the site.

USAction began collecting signatures online -- it now has about 26,000 -- and put a petition letter on the progressive website Dailykos.com. The group also launched an ad campaign on Facebook.

Then late last Friday, USAction received a "cease and desist" letter from Monster.com claiming the information in the campaign is false, misleading and defamatory. "Monster.com does not engage in any discrimination in hiring," the letter said. "Monster.com is the media for third-party employers that post their jobs directly onto the monster.com website without input or editorial contribution from Monster."

USAction spokesman David Elliot said USAction would not cease nor desist.

These job sites cover their asses by saying that they are the middleman for these ads. But they are just as GUILTY! All they care about is making money. There is another job board that was started recently. We found them on twitter. Here is their advertisement:

A new website where the unemployed can job search without barriers. http://ReEmployAmerica.com

My husband searched on here last week and lo and behold, found an ad that discriminated against the unemployed. We immediately called them out on it and they were very angry that this happened. They immediately pulled the ad and posted on Yahoo about it. They do seem really sincere about their new site. Might want to check it out. We need more job boards that are on our side.

Monster.com and other job boards are not responsible, because of the law. Remember there use to be smoking ads on TV and elsewhere. There in it for the money and not to upset the employers. They pay the bills.

Were all tired of these games where they apply it or not for many things. It is about excluding people instead if including everyone. We understand there are certain jobs where you must be physically in shape. Most of us are not applying to be a fireman.

We should not be asked how long you been unemployed. I get from many recruiters are that you available right now? Majority don't care the length, they really understand, today. We also don't want to inform them of our age.

EEOC always comes up with the statement is what they do with the information. I say, prove that it isn't so! Many job applications are still grossly out of date. Don't insist what year I graduated.

Resumes are marketing tools and need to cover up job gaps. Do we ask how was there stock in December, 2008 and the number they terminated? The Hiring Manager should only go by relevant skills and education.

Employers should not be hung up when you last worked or past job gaps. Which many now have working Contract Assignments. Most jobs are contract. Somebody is playing Catch22 and needs to stop!.

What really pisses me off is how these scammers can so easily get into our resumes and send us those emails for fake jobs. My husband is so fed up that he may pull his resume off all those job boards and stick to applying directly to companies and using recruiters, none of which are any better at getting a job, but at least no scamming.

I agree Too Old! I received two calls last week from people from India about a job in my city. I couldn't understand half of what they were saying.

Also many recruiters post jobs which do not exist just to get you to come into their office to fill out an application. Still haven't figured out what they get out of it other than making it look like they're working. I'm also tired of seeing postings for buying a franchise on Monster and Careerbuilder.

Total waste of your gas money, and subjecting you to more BS. I try to stay away from the big boards, use more local boards. Then look up the ratings on the local agencies, some have just terrible comments, a big run around there as well. What can a person do, hop all over town making it to the meet and greet/drink job clubs. I don't think so.
