There are a number of job search boards out there that have adopted
used-car-sales tactics to milk money out of those desperate to find a job.
It seems that in this economy, job seekers are now viewed as a large enough
group to exploit.

Like Keith, so far I have refused to pay anyone for a service like that. My
logic is this: Since they smell bad to the job seeker, they probably also
smell bad to the job poster. Any company that posts their jobs ONLY on one
of these for-quick-profit sites probably isn't one I'd like to work for.
That being said, there are enough legitimate job search boards out there
that I think any listing I'd have to pay for I can find for free somewhere
else. And if the job boards don't have the listing, several dozen hungry
head hunters probably do.

Don't give the gouls your money, I say.

Regards to all,

Kevin Cheek

(and if anyone does know a great source for job listings, I'd love to learn
of it)
