Taleo sells your personal information

Everyone these days is applying for positions. It seems that most of the alleged general recruitment sites have major issues providing genuine positions. In months of investigating positions on CareerBuilder, only one out of hundreds appeared to be genuine. The same pretty much goes for all of the jobs websites.

Today it was startling to find that Taleo has apparently been selling email addresses in some kind of spam campaign. The following email in all its dubious glory was received from a Taleo server. Case closed on Taleo.

Dear -removed-, my name is Rosa Neal and I am the Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition for Kool Smiles.  Kool Smiles General Dentistry is a growing group practice dedicated to providing access to quality dentistry for kids and adults across the country. 

We are currently seeking full-time and part-time Associate Dentists for our SC clinics. 

Please note that we will pay a referral fee up to $2500 for a Dentist that you refer who is subsequently hired.  So, even if you are not interested, but know of someone who might be I would love to speak with you! 

We currently have openings in the following offices:   

*Rock Hill

At Kool Smiles we offer: 
•    Sign-on bonus up to $20k and relocation benefits 
•    Competitive guaranteed daily rate
•    401K Plan with company match
•      Health, dental and vision insurance 
•      100% coverage of malpractice insurance 
•    Paid vacation days
•    Visa and permanent residency sponsorship with covered legal fees 
•    No buy-in required, no lab fees

If you are interested in hearing about this opportunity or know of someone who might be interested in this opportunity please feel free to contact me directly.  
I look forward to hearing back from you.

Best Regards,

 In other similar news I've been on the mailing list for SCWorks for a long time. A few days ago, an interesting position was listed and the question was raised as to whether i was interested. A long farce then ensued.

SCWorks - Are you interested in this vacancy?
Me - Yes.
SCWorks - You must apply online via the link.
Me - The link leads off to a 3rd party website that says the job has gone.
SCWorks - Do a search on the SCWorks website.
Me - Sorry but I have just tried that and the search does not seem to work.
SCWorks - Here's a link to the job on the company website.
Me - That's a link to the splash page. There are several jobs listed with the same description. Which one was it.
SCWorks - Try this, tjis, tjis and this.

It just seems that all these general jobs websites and that includes government sites feed off each other and with each iteration lose accuracy.
