Unemployment sucks. That is the bottom line. I’m that fact has been statistically proven many times.
I’ve been out of work for about a year. I never thought that I would have such a difficult time finding a job especially with all of the years I’ve spent in school.
So today, I got an email from a position I applied for off of http://www.craigslist.org. I am always very cautious when it comes to applying to places and the personal information that I give them. I applied to this job yesterday, and this morning I got an email stating that the company had narrowed the applicants down to three and I was one of them. I was immediately thrilled to hear this information. I started to become skeptical about the company when they asked me to request my credit score through a link that they supplied me. To me a long story short, this company is scamming people like me who are desperate for a job.
As I sit here writing this, I wonder how many people fell for this scheme. An email like this sounds fantastic to a person who has been out of work for a while. Please be careful out there, people! It is a tough road out there but eventually things have to start looking up.
