Why you should not use Job and Talent; spammers of the worst kind
I received an email from a tool called Job and Talent just an hour ago, from a friend I had not seen in ages, so I thought, hey I am gonna help my friend, maybe he gets something for inviting people, or maybe is a start-up he is working on (he is a developer)
So I joined, I am also kind of looking for a job (THANK GOD!) and I am in the middle of my notice period.
When you join, you are asked to fill your data, in 4 consecutive steps (good UX!)
The problem with Job and Talent is that you cannot skip the fourth step, which is “inviting your friends”. Fine, I thought, I would just invite some dummy emails. So I connected my Gmail account, which asked me for permission to “manage my contacts”. Next thing I know, all my contacts, including work people, people I am talking about joining their company in Berlin, work email groups, ex-girlfriends, people I don;t want to talk to, people who hate me…have all got a moronic spamming email saying I want them to join Job and Talent
Here is a picture to prove it.
