View Full Version : Anyone seeking careers in tech?

I was just wondering if anyone could provide some feedback to me. SPAMI work for a company that provides information utilized by most placement services and staffing firms in the high tech industry in California. SPAMThese firms charge people up to 35% of their first year's income for successful placement. SPAMPeople need these agencies because these companies are NOT easy to find and/or contact! SPAMHere's my question....why would those seeking tech careers not respond to an ad that allows them to obtain the same information for only 80 bucks!?
We have been doing this for over 10 years and we're extremely popular at career fairs, high tech fests, and college campuses. SPAMAny feedback would be great! (I've even offered to give NETSMOG folks 10% off this already nominally priced information service!)

Ah, what exactly is your question here? it sounds like a good service, if kinda overcharging the SPAMpeople, but if its only for one year then its not TOO bad. but if you make 40k at a job then take out takes and then the 35% or so, they arnt gonna brign home much money at all. less than 20k. that would not make me happy. but your company has to make money some how.

i would probaly go throu you gys, but living in New Hampshire could prove to be quite the daily comute

Actually, our information costs only $79.95!! SPAMI personally give college students and anyone who comes from NETSMOG 10% off of that! SPAMAs you can see, this is a LOT cheaper than paying a percentage of your income to a firm that can successfully place you....and they use our information to do it!!!
