Some Important Tips To Use When Dealing With Prospective Recruiters
- Never give out your social security number to a prospective recruiter.
- Never provide credit card or bank numbers or engage in a monetary transaction of any sort.
- Be cautious when dealing with contacts outside of your own country.
- Do not provide any non-work related personal information (ie social security number, eye color, marital status, etc.) over the phone or online.
Other Privacy Features On the Site
You never need to provide personally identifiable data to search for jobs on our
Site. Logging into the Site is always optional for you, (although logging in does
give you access to smarter job search tools such as the SkilledJobsDirect Dashboard,
Personal Search Agents and Saved Searches.)
Post Your Profile
Posting your profile on the Site puts you in front of thousands of recruiters with
open positions each day. When you post your profile, we automatically create a registration
for you using the email address and password that you supply. When you return to
the Site in the future you will use that same email address and password to access
and edit your existing profile.
Profile Privacy Options
We know that our job seekers have varying levels of comfort when it comes to posting
their profile on the Internet. To accommodate the needs of all users, SkilledJobsDirect
has 2 levels of privacy from which you can choose. Please note that these privacy
settings only apply to whether or not your profile can be viewed by third parties.
SkilledJobsDirect will still collect, use or disclose anonymous, aggregated information
about you and your visits to our website in the manner described above.
1. Standard Profile
This option gives you the most visibility to the broadest recruiter audience possible
by making your profile searchable in our Profile Database. If you select this option,
any registered recruiter user can view your profile and contact details. Potential
recruiters may also use our "Recruiter Dashboard" feature which provides recruiters
with search engine results generated by searching various details from your profile.
2. Private Profile
This option allows you to post your profile on the Site without having it searched
by or viewable to recruiters. The benefit is that you can quickly and easily apply
for jobs without retyping your information.
Your General Contact Information
Managing your privacy is as simple as selecting which pieces of your contact information
are displayed. This is done in the section of the profile form called "Contact Information."
Using option 2 above requires that you select the Private option from the "Contact
Information" section at the bottom of the edit form.
Email and Online Fraud - Phishing
Unfortunately, email and online fraud are continuing concerns for virtually all
businesses that operate on the Internet. Please be aware that, from time to time,
fraudulent emails have been circulated to SkilledJobsDirect users that appear to
be from SkilledJobsDirect but which are, in fact, sent by fraudsters trying to steal
your login credentials. SkilledJobsDirect is not sending these fraudulent emails.
If you receive an email or pop-up window requesting that you sign in to SkilledJobsDirect
and provide your personal information, check the link by hovering your mouse over
it. If the link appears different than the link printed in the email, do not respond.
If you are in doubt, please contact Support@SkilledJobsDirect.com
False Jobs and Scams
Occasionally, you may also receive email that look like SkilledJobsDirect Job offers.
These email messages typically spoof the SkilledJobsDirect logo, disclaimer, and
other information. Such email messages DO NOT come from SkilledJobsDirect, but from
scammers attempting to scam you out of money or confidential information. Be especially
cognizant of the salary offered and the time required to perform the duties. If
it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
