|Something's VeriRotten with VeriResume...|
|Wednesday, 01 August 2007|
VeriResume is soliciting jobs. It's not apparent where they get their lead lists - they may be buying them or scraping them from the job boards, or maybe they buy/download them elsewhere. They have several websites, but at veriresume.com there's an impressive list of clients. Part of what bothers me about these guys right off the bat is that they act like the job seeker is the problem in the employment world. Get a load of this quote from their main page:
"VeriResume was created to combat the growing problem of resume fraud. Resume fraud hurts both employers and honest job seekers."
Check out the research and YOU decide if you want to give them your info. :)
