Subject:List of Bad Companies From:Melonie Holliman <mrh -at- ABMDATA -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 5 May 1997 08:58:35 +0000
I think a web site reference list of companies and who worked
for them would be a GREAT idea. IMHO, the list should include
both jobshops and direct employers. Also, why just freelancers?
Regular employees and contractors working through jobshops would
also be interested. Just list the companies and the email addresses
of any TW willing to provide a reference.
Like any reference, we have to consider where the information is
coming from as well as who it is about. It should be up to the
people asking for the reference and those providing the reference to
be professional and responsible in their communication, not the
Just my IMHO.
