I fully agree with you. And I would not advise you nor anyone else to post any resume on any job seeking web site! In my opinion, (IMO) doing so is all to often an open invitation to receiving e-mail spam! Worse yet, sharing personal and or confidential information with an unknown and anonymous person.
What I would suggest and IMO as a better method. Apply for a job or open job position directly on the web site of the company you intend to or would like to work for.... In doing so you can be better assured your private and confidential information will be more secure.
If you do seek employment on any job posting web site, use extreme cautions. Especially those sites where an employer does not have to pay to post a job or an open job position. Such sites often do request a resume. With any such job posting web sites, I suggest withholding all confidential information in your resume.
Until you're sure it is safe to do so. Preferably, when you can visit the company in person and fill out a job application.
And DO NOT use your primary email address either, in your online resume or application when applying for a job with any job posting web site. Create another email address specifically for the purpose of job seeking communications.
WHY ? Because checking out resumes containing email addresses is yet another way spammers obtain a valid email address. Use an alternate email address to avoid having a primary email address being spammed to death! You'll be glad you did........
Yes, what you say can be quite true. I have put my resume' on the Web hundreds of times during this decade and I haven't really had much problem, but it is possible to run into bad situations.
So cheers, and thank you for the advice.
