As I was browsing, I came across this little feature
http://www.careerbuilder.com/jobseeker/jobreport/?sc_cmp2=JS_HP_Tools_hireinsider
which purports to give folks who have applied for a job through a Career Builder listing the following:
hireINSIDER will show you:
How many people applied
Education levels
Salary information
Years of experience
Cover letter usage
And more.....

  1. Have any of you tried this feature?
  2. What were your results?
  3. Would you recommend others try it or not?
  4. Why?

My guess is that it is just an attempt by careerbuilder to get more information from you that they can sell to their advertisers. Salary and other information is required, then it tells you you have to apply to a job to get your "free report". I've applied to many, but it still won't show me my free report. I'm guessing the free report probably requires signing up for something that is not free down the road. LinkedIn is doing something similar where you can see more detailed profile information on others that you are not linked to. First month free, then $$$.

Careerbuilder is the biggest spam generator of all the job sites IMO. It also seems to have the most shady recruiters that appear to be overseas and not actually contracted to represent the companies they claim to be recruiting for.

I had several e-mails from a "Rachel Smith" for a local job that looked pretty good, but it came in at an odd hour for US business. I called anyway, and got a very robotic sounding answering system. Finally got through to a male with a very heavy Indian accent. He was very confused when I asked to speak to Rachel, who he claimed worked for him after stumbling a bit. Said "someone" would get back to me. Got a call a day or so later from another male, who left a voicemail asking what salary I was looking for "in rupees". Got several more calls, all of which I ignored. Never did find Rachel.

At best it is foreign call center workers trying to match up jobs they don't really represent with people on Careerbuilder. At worst it is a phishing scam.

Be very careful with information you give to job boards or people claiming to have jobs. Assume they are trying to scam you until you can verify they are really who they say they are, have a physical presence in your country, etc.

Always good advice!
