Job Scam Empty Job Scam

Post by 462Tech Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:58 am

I came across a job listing this morning for a position that I was interested in however, the ad had no company name or info. To apply send your resume to a "ymail" address.
Now I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but are you kidding me?! This has scam written all over it. I'm tired of this crap. I sit in front of my computer for 7 to 8 hours a day 5 to 6 days a week looking for a job, resume writing, filling out applications etc. Just to have some butt monkey trying to get personal info from people. This really shakes my confidence in society.
Sorry for the rant, I'll get off my soapbox now.

Though you must always be cautious of scammers, don't assume that every single ad of the sort is from a scammer. You may be missing out on opportunities that way. Having spent MANY years in recruiting/staffing, I know that there are many recruiters/headhunters and sometimes company representatives, (myself included) who create or use these types of email addresses to screen candidates for positions. Think about it...Just as YOU, the jobseeker, may get scammed and/or spammed, the recruiter experiences the same thing PLUS gets TONS of resumes (alot of them nowhere near qualified for the advertised position), solicitations, etc. coming in, as a result of the ad.
