#3 UPDATE Employee

We're sorry you feel our recruitment services are questionable, allow me to explain how we operate

AUTHOR: Career Network - (U.S.A.)

I'm sorry that you feel our recruitment practices are questionable. I'm sure this is only due to a misunderstanding of us and our business. Allow me to clear up any confusion by explaining who we are and what it is we exactly do.

Career Network is a new job board that is free to use by both job seekers and employers. Currently, there are thousands of jobs throughout the country available for application on our network of employment sites. We actively market those opportunities to individuals who have previously expressed interest in receiving employment offers. This works as a benefit for our corporate clients as we actively reach hundreds of potential applicants who had not previously been introduced to the opportunity through traditional job ads.

To keep our services free to both job seekers and employers we do offer advertising verticals on the site. However they are completely voluntary and do not in any way affect job seekers' consideration for the listed employment opportunities. We act only as an intermediary between the applicants and the hiring companies, and do not interfere with the delivery of submitted resumes for any reason. To do so would jeopardize our relationships not only with our corporate clients but our advertising partners as well.

Let me assure you that nothing will be done with your personal information that you do not expressly authorize. Foremost, since you are applying for a position, your resume will be transmitted to the employer who will then consider you for a job based solely on your skills and education. Beyond that, we will only connect you with our promotional partners if you agree to it during the application process.

I hope this clears up any confusion you may have regarding our Web site and our recruitment services. Please feel free to contact us with any further issues or suggestions at info@careernetwork.us.com.

Job Applicants can get ripped off on craigslist.com too and it just started!

AUTHOR: Helene - (U.S.A.)

That isn't the only place you can get ripped off if you are looking for a job.

I graduate next year so I started looking for work and craigslist.com had a great office job that would help me finance phase two of my career plan and what did I see but receptionist jobs in Austin,Texas ( in case I want to go back) that paid $51,000 to $75,000 but listed NO employer.

Based on my past experiences in Austin,Texas, I KNEW there were NO jobs that paid like that unless it was a call girl or escort racket or something like that...
You can bet it was going to be something more than just answering the phone, doing some full charge bookkeeping, signing for packages, making sure the copies and the coffee get made, the travel plans are made, etc. & etc.

For this, they usually allow a maximum of $11-$12 AN HOUR WITH NO BENEFITS!

As this economy gets worse, I am afraid that the EMPLOYMENT SCAMS will get as bad as they were back in 2000!

Here we go again, folks! It is going to be a long, bad ride...
