I met Susan Joyce, owner of Job-Hunt.org, in Kentucky this spring. She was just as cool in person as she was over e-mail. She has run Job-Hunt.org (here’s her blog) for quite a while, starting it shortly after she was let go from her big computer employer (who no longer exists).
In other words, before something lands on Susan Joyce’s Job Hunt site, she checks them out. She reads the fine print. She validates that they are not going to mess with your personal data, or take advantage of you! Of course, things may slip through, I can’t imagine she has a fool-proof system, but just knowing that she is not linking to and recommending everything and everyone is (a) reassuring, and (b) unheard of.
Susan Joyce is watching out for you, and I can confidently say that you can use her site to find resources and feel good about what you are finding there.
Here’s a sample of her own language on the site:
Legitimate employers usually qualify for one free listing in Job-Hunt,
Legitimate employers (I’m sure she is checking their legitimacy) aren’t guaranteed, or entitled, you still have to make it past the gatekeeper.
Job-Hunt.org certainly has my stamp of approval. Go check it out!
