Why Computerized Job Searching Services Should Be Beaten With Large Hammers

It's no secret to most longtime readers that I was employed when I started this blog. Then I wasn't.

At the time, I signed up for a number of job-matching services. One of them was a service that used to advertise a lot. So I filled out the form and told them that I was looking for jobs in which the key word was "attorney".

Now some of those services are about as hard to get out of as the Mafia or the IRA. They keep sending me job alerts, which I can't seen to sign off of, so I just delete them.

This is an excerpt from one of them.

Remember, I told them I was an attorney and I was seeking jobs in the legal field.

Does anyone have any idea how I would be even remotely qualified for a job as a "field nurse" or a "periop nurse"?

Maybe most of the attorneys they deal with have extensive ambulance chasing resumes? And dem nurses dun works wit ambulances too, Jethro...might be a match!

It is exciting to find some other services or mailing lists that are almost as impossible to get off as some of those I've popped-up on recently. Now I feel less put upon.

One can only wonder if they crossed names...

That service is a notorious scam. It doesn't surprise me that their search doesn't even work right.

BadTux: Heh. I never gave them a dime.
