Privacy Policy

Effective Date: July 9, 2012

This website is owned and operated by Skilled Jobs Direct LLC (" Skilled Jobs Direct," "SkilledJobsDirect," "we," "us" or "our"). We are committed to maintaining your confidence and trust with respect to the information we collect from you. This privacy policy sets forth what information we collect about you, how we use your information, and the choices you have about how we use your information. SkilledJobsDirect continues to strive to provide the safest possible environment for you to search for and apply to Skilled Jobs.


We have created this Privacy Policy to inform you of our collection and use of personal information that we collect through the SkilledJobsDirect website. This Privacy Policy applies only to data gathered on the web site under SkilledJobsDirect's control. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any other information or web site. This Privacy Policy incorporates by reference the Terms of Service for the Site, which apply to this privacy policy. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically as we may update it from time to time. Each time you visit the Site or provide us with information, you are, by doing so, accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy at that time. You agree that by using the Site you are expressly and affirmatively consenting to our use and disclosure of the information that you provide, and consenting to receive emails, as described below.

Collection of Information Provided By Your Browser and Personal Information

In order to operate the Site in an efficient and effective manner and provide users with information on job postings and services that may be of interest to them, SkilledJobsDirect may collect personal information, including contact information (such as an email address), from its users. In addition, this information allows us to provide users with private and secure areas to post and modify their original content on our Site (e.g., jobs and profiles). We also track certain information based upon your use of the Site and use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve users in general. This information may include the URL that a user has just come from (whether this URL is on our Site or not), the URL a user goes to next (whether this URL is on our Site or not) and a user's computer browser information. You agree that SkilledJobsDirect may use your personal information to contact you and deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests (such as relevant job postings, services, educational or other career development opportunities), or provide administrative notices or communications applicable to your use of the Site. By accepting this Privacy Policy, you expressly agree to receive this information. If you do not wish to receive these communications, we encourage you to opt out of any further emails by following the opt out provisions provided in each such communication. SkilledJobsDirect may also aggregate certain non-personally identifiable information about its users (such as trades, skills, location, education and experience) and use such anonymous information to prepare reports that it provides to its users. When posting jobs and profiles, our users decide for themselves how much contact information they wish to display. All users should be aware, however, that when they choose to display or distribute personal information (such as their email address or profile) via the Site or any other distribution method, that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties for which SkilledJobsDirect is not responsible. Also, you may have arrived at the Site by following a link from a SkilledJobsDirect affiliate or other web site. If so, please be aware that SkilledJobsDirect may share your information with that affiliate and the affiliate may use the information consistent with its privacy policy instead of this one. SkilledJobsDirect may also disclose specific user information when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of SkilledJobsDirect or other users of the Site. In addition, personal information we have collected may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets or a bankruptcy of SkilledJobsDirect. Such disclosures may be made with or without your consent, and with or without notice.

Credit Card Security

SkilledJobsDirect employs encryption for secure credit card transactions and the credit card information is not kept on our servers or in our database.

What You Should Know

SkilledJobsDirect cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. Therefore, although we are committed to protecting your privacy, we do not promise, nor should you expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. As a user of the Site, you understand and agree that you assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the Site, the internet generally, and the documents you post or access and for your conduct on and off the Site.

Your California Privacy Rights

California law permits its residents to request and receive information about a business' disclosure of certain categories of personal information to other companies for their use in direct marketing. If you are a California resident and a user of the Site, you can request a copy of this information from SkilledJobsDirect by sending an email to Please include your name and email address.

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

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!

Help Us Monitor Fraud

Please be advised that SkilledJobsDirect will not request that you download software. If you ever receive a request for this, please do not respond and immediately report the suspected fraud to subject line “FRAUD”.

If you think you have been a victim of fraud, immediately report the situation to your local police and contact us at
