Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

A Top Site for Finding Work

Best of the Web/Top Site for Finding Work Job-Hunt.org is a “Top” or “Best” site for job hunting and careers according to US News & World Report, Forbes, and PC Magazine.

Job-Hunt is dedicated to the millions of people who have had their personal lives disrupted by the loss of a job.

The Internet Has Changed How We Live Our Lives. How We Communicate. How We Date, Work, Play…

and how we look for work. More and more we go online. And where the people go, that’s where you’ll find the criminals and predators. Please be aware that Identity Thieves have – for some time now – been posting fake job openings, fake employment websites, and various other employment scams online.

Some time ago now, I wrote about “cyber-safe” resumes, and I received a nice letter from Susan P. Joyce at Job-Hunt.org. She reminded us that,

The recession has multiplied the scams, and people need to be very careful using any job board or even “employer” Website – not just when using Craigslist (which is often a good source of jobs).”

Please see the excellent, Job Search Scam Avoidance Guide

Job search scams look very appealing, and even smart people “fall” for them. The result can be loss of the money you do have, trouble with the IRS or other law enforcement agency, and identity theft when your SSN is provided to the fake “employer.”

And if you are (or you know someone who is) in the process of seeking a new job/career, please click here, read, and learn how to “Put the “Safe” in your Cyber-SAFE Resume by modifying the content of your resume! Take control and create your own privacy protection this way, without depending on the Web job site to do it for you. Do this to protect your existing job, if you have one, and your privacy.

  1. TechPaul,

    Like your recent Cell Phone article; this is another winner! Great advice for people, especially at a time when many people are feeling desperation. I just wish there was a way to fight cybercrime and turn the tables around.

    • Rick,
      Oh.. I never claim to be the sharpest knife in the drawer, and even I can think of ways..
      But! No denying our recent strategy of ignoring the problem sure isn’t working out too well.
