Job openings, job search and employment will send you to sites that rip you off, and here is how they do it. Lawyers fit

Updated on March 12, 2013

Some corporations are only concerned with getting your name and information

Look at the tree. So beautiful and enticing. My son caught the glory of the moment. But do not follow rainbows on the internet. If it is too good to be true it isn't.

Do not search for jobs or lawyers of educationl institutions on line.

Since originally writing this hub I have been tasked to find a good lawyer for an LLC in a distant venue. Now I can tell you first hand that like jobs and schools the marketers have penetrated the lawyer search market on the web. You state you legal problem and then hit next and every bit of personal data is mined from you either knowing or unknowingly. Do not use a referral site. Look to the law office directly, more work but more right one. And on that, in the specialty section on the law office website – probably bogus.

Jobs, openings, job search and employment are words that will get you a thousand sites that rip you off, and here is how they do it.

If you are looking for work and use any of the above words to search for a job online you are headed for real disappointment. Jobs, openings, job search and employment are words that will get you into just about any and all spam lists, if you actually visit the sites you are driven to.

The first problem is giving your simple name and email address in order to apply for anything. The next problem is your phone number and physical address. Next the site you are using will require you to use their site and programs in order to apply to jobs they list. A resume, plus photo, will have all but your banking information and Social Security number.

Sites designed to prey off of the desperate job seeker, are bountiful. The two most prevalent seem to be education marketers and get out of debt marketers. No need to link to any, as all you have to do is type into any search engine: Jobs, openings, job search, and employment. Within one hour of going through the process of registering on two sites I received two phone calls for online schools and another from some group that could clear all my debt for one low monthly payment.

Another bad thing about the sites is that they leave expired job postings up after they are filled. This of course helps drive traffic to the site but is extremely frustrating for the job seeker.

But probably the hardest part of the process nowadays is not the internet. It is employers who post job openings that they need but do not have the funding for, or lack the intent to actually hire someone for the position.

Human resources people want to keep their job. So the compile your information to make it look like they are productive.

In the best of worlds, we would not have to look for work. But in these times a jobseeker just has to bite the bullet, and type; Jobs, openings, job search, and employment. The worst thing that you can do is give up. As inspiration let me remind you that, you did not get the 14th job you applied for because the 50th is going to be perfect.

      So true. When I had to look for jobs there were the education marketers and the "jobs" where they wanted you to sell stuff for commission.

      I sure hope that it is getting better out there but for some reason I doubt it. Thank you for stopping by and commenting Robert.

      I was out of work in 2003/2004 and again 2011/2012. The last time was much worse than before. The best I could do was a 60% pay cut. The pay raises are from hunger. A new trend is to get people to "be their own boss" which means no benefits.

      I did some more "research" and found that the problems are only getting worse. The "how to" sights for being your own boss are the worst.

      I wonder if it's the economy or more people wanting to earn money without having to work at a normal job?

      Robert I think that it is both. One psychology study years ago put losing a job right up there with divorce as far as trauma goes. It leads to a lot of dislike for a "normal" job.

      Robert thank you for bringing me back to this article. I think I will update it. The unemployed are being forgotten. No more benefits -- no more obvious lines to get them -- out of sight out of mind. We cannot forget the plight!

      Yes, I think the Bureau of Labor Statistic numbers don't seem to tell the whole story. While the employment numbers seem good I think many have given up and many others are underemployed.
