Be Careful in Your Job Search

In the most recent issue of Staff Digest (February 2009), Editor-in-Chief Paula Kutka has a warning for job seekers in this troubling economy.

She had received a press release telling her about a on-line name lead site for job seekers. A former recruiter had begun a website to provide names of contact people at companies so they could "bypass the gatekeeper". The service charges $10 per name.

Please be very cautious when it comes to this type of offering. Candidates should never pay for employment services no matter what the current economic climate is like. Please be aware of this and be careful when looking for employment opportunities.
