  • Monster.com e-mails: Real or Fishin'?

    I got an e-mail yesterday from an employer on Monster.com who found my resume and thinks that I would be good for a position. I'm just wondering if:
    1. Anyone else has received e-mails similar to this.
    2. If this is actually legit, or if this company is just fishin'...

    Here is the e-mail:
    QUOTE
    Dear Stephen,

    I recently saw your resume online and think you may be right for a position I am trying to fill. I am a senior partner in a small online marketing company, which helps small and mid sized businesses market their products and services online. Our company helps businesses that want to increase their online business, but don't have the technical or marketing knowledge in house.

    I have an opening for an advertising assistant to help dealing with client projects. The position allows you to work from home so location is irrelevant. Responsibilities include:

    Tracking Results of existing campaigns
    Writing Copy for banner and click ads
    Negotiating Media Buys with media companies
    Attending Client conference calls and discussing creative ideas

    We are offering the following compensation

    Annual salary of $60,000 per year
    Quarterly Bonus based on company profits
    Paid vacation (2 weeks)
    Paid personal time (1 week)
    Tuition Re-imbursement plan

    We do not have a current company policy, but we will offer up to $500 per month for health coverage. In addition the company will cover all expenses such as supplies, Internet connection, phone line and fax machine.

    The person I am looking for should have a strong instinct for advertising. Knowledge of click ads and banner ads is an advantage, but I can train the right person. The most important qualification is an intuitive instinct of what gets the potential customer to act.

    If you feel this position is right for you please go to the link below and fill out the online application. Once you have filled out this application I will contact you by phone for a one on one interview.

    Or alternately:

    http://www.applications07.com

    Either one is fine.

    Regards,
    Thomas Johnson
    Senior Partner
    Mile High Partners

    We have just launched a new website so it is still in development, but you can visit it for more information about our company: http://www.milehighpartners.net[/b][/quote]

    If they ask for you SS# & credit card info...GIVE IT TO THEM!
    . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

              I had my resume out on Monster for awhile last year - any responses I received were either:

              a) via phone
              b) very vague e-mails with phone #'s to call

              I never had anyone send me a salary expectation via e-mail.

              I would vote fishin'.
              I leave for two days...
