Click, you�re hired. Or tracked...
The business of searching for jobs online has grown from a market niche to a multi-billion-dollar, rapidly consolidating industry that relies on the eager search activities � and employment dreams � of millions of job seekers. It has also proven to be the ultimate recession-proof Internet business. As other technology companies flounder, online job search sites remain key resources in the wake of layoffs and uncertain employment prospects.

However, job seekers who post their resumes online face considerable threats to their privacy. Resumes may be stored by online job sites for many years, and may be misused for data mining and even identity theft.

Additionally, corporations that encourage job seekers to send resumes directly to "the corporate website" often fail to tell job seekers that their resumes may also be posted to a third-party resume database for searching by other employers... http://www.privacyfoundation.org/privacywatch/monster.asp

Reference and Resource

Evaluating Internet Research Sources
There is an extremely wide variety of material on the Internet, ranging in its accuracy, reliability, and value. Unlike most traditional information media (books, magazines, organizational documents), no one has to approve the content before it is made public. It's your job as a searcher, then, to evaluate what you locate, in order to determine whether it suits your needs.

Information is everywhere on the Internet, existing in large quantities and continuously being created and revised. This information exists in a large variety of kinds (facts, opinions, stories, interpretations, statistics)and is created for many purposes (to inform, to persuade, to sell, to present a viewpoint, and to create or change an attitude or belief). For each of these various kinds and purposes, information exists on many levels of quality or reliability. It ranges from very good to very bad and includes every shade in between. http://www.virtualsalt.com/evalu8it.htm

Evaluation of information sources
Pointers to criteria for evaluating information resources, particularly those on the Internet. It is intended to be particularly useful to librarians and others who are selecting sites to include in an information resource guide, or informing users as to the qualities they should use in evaluating Internet information. http://www.vuw.ac.nz/~agsmith/evaln/evaln.htm
