Damn ...

I hate getting suckered by web sites.

Actually, this was a multi-step "suckering" as I first opened up and read a "job search information" e-mail on "essential resources" for one's job search. SOMETIMES these have some good information in them, so I got "suckered" there. One of the things was about a service that was touted as "This is the most powerful tool we've seen for accelerating the job search process and getting hired faster.", so I took a look at it.

NOWHERE on the intro page (OK, if you "drilled down" into the FAQ the "cost" is mentioned) was there any notice about this being a "pay service" ... hell, if they said, at the end of the list of what was provided, something like "All this for just $##.##!", it would be one thing but the whole site is designed to suck you in, click here to put in your info, click here to build your resume, click here to send your resume ... OOPS! ... one more step (FIRST MENTION OF COSTS), what credit card do you want to use?

Damn them. The number of fucking SLEAZEBAGS out there looking to take advantage of the desperation of the job seeker (by the way, the "executive search firm" that was going to have me come out for "an interview" never bothered to send me the extra materials I'd requested after I canceled my first appointment citing stuff I'd found on the internet about them), is just insane.

This makes me want to find their offices and go smash heads with cinder blocks!
