Scammers, Spammers, Spoofers, and Phishers: Dangers in the Online Job Search Jungle


Online job search has truly revolutionized career transition in many ways, and I have personally witnessed many success stories of those who have leveraged job sites to identify leads, win interviews, and land great positions. However, in the past several weeks, I have been disheartened to hear the sad tales of several prospective clients whose employment search efforts using the Web had resulted in financial and personal identity damages.

It is truly a jungle out there on the World Wide Web, and if you are an executive who plans to use the Internet in your job search, you will want to be very, very cautious.
