executiveopenings.net is a subsidiary of executivesearchonline.com.
This company's email practices are extremely questionable. They send 'phishing' style emails asking if your "are still on the job market" but really it is just an attempt to obtain your email address and other personal information. They include an, 'opt-out' link at the bottom of their email, which again, is just an attempt to collect your email address. This method leads us to believe that they are actually sending these emails through someone, in this case 'Monster.com.' If this company really did have an email address for you, their 'opt-out' link would have a variable in the link so that you would not be required to provide your email address when 'opting out.' Since they do not have this, and instead, ask for your email address, it leads us to believe that this is a phishing attempt.
ExecutiveSearchOnline.com routinely opens what they call 'subsidiaries' which are in fact different versions of their own website so that if one website begins to have 'legal' issues, they can easily close it down and open another one, again marked as a 'subsidiary.' Wouldn't this be called a boiler room operation?
Under the circumstances, I would recommend the following if you wish to do business with this company.
DO NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.
IF YOU PROVIDE AN EMAIL ADDRESS, CREATE A FREE EMAIL ACCOUNT THAT YOU CAN GIVE THEM THAT YOU CAN CLOSE LATER.
DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER. INSTEAD USE SKYPE. YOU CAN CALL 800 NUMBERS FOR FREE FROM SKYPE AND THE RECIPIENT CAN NOT CALL YOU BACK OR OBTAIN YOUR PHONE NUMBER THROUGH CALLER ID.
ENSURE YOUR RESUME DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OTHER THAN YOUR NAME. IF THEY REALLY ARE A RECRUITMENT COMPANY, THEY ONLY NEED YOUR NAME AND AN EMAIL ADDRESS.
NEVER SEND THEM ANY MONEY. RECRUITMENT COMPANIES GET PAID BY THE EMPLOYER, NOT THE EMPLOYEE. MONEY UP FRONT = SCAM.
