careerbuilder, hotjobs, employment listing sites / misleading advertising

1 United States Review updated:

These advertised employment posting sites are posting marketing schemes and business opportunities as valid employment listings.

Work at home schemes, franchise schemes, staffing agencies using
site for recruitment purposes, marketing for schools..etc.

These sites are full of scam, spam; so many marketing scheme listings
it makes them no longer useful as "ADVERTISED" employment sites.
They need to be removed from public domains.

    I totally agree with BARR that employment listing websites such as HotJobs, Career Builder and Monster (to name a few sites) is the absolute worst way to find a job. Most of these websites are disorganized, have postings that have already been filled and many scams that disguise themselves as a legitimate businesses.

    Job seekers have to face the fact that you have less than a 5% chance of finding a job on the internet because many of these jobs on employment listing websites get between 300 and 3000 resumes per position and you have less than .01% chance finding a job online. The internet only works for finding work if you are in the medical field (such as a medical doctor or nurse) or in education (K-12 and becoming a college professor) because if you are trying to find a job in business, retail, engineering, media and customer service to name a few industries. The best way to find a new job is through networking with everyone you know and through groups and organizations you are members are because 80% of jobs are never advertised and the jobs that are mentioned on employment listing websites are a waste of time and not worth wasting your time and money looking for work when you have less than a 5% chance of finding work.
