More petty bitching, feel free to skip

I fucking hate the job market in NY, the only calls i ever get are from fucking scammers. Seriously 99% of all listings in the Security industry or for fucking security schools who want to sell you classes and as soon as they find out that you have all of the classes you need suddenly they no longer have over 50 positions they need to fill ASAP, and some of the more unscrupulous companies try to get you to come down for far fetched classes such as Homeland security and Metal Detection that I am positive they are not qualified to give.(And usually these sort of places don't even have job LEADS much less "placement")
Also Health Insurance companies who want you to come down and interview only to ask you to put up money so you can get your insurance licence.
And lately I keep running into fake job websites were you apply for a job and the website calls you trying to sign up for college courses..UGH!
Thankfully I have enough foresight to research all these companies online so I rarely waste my time going to any bullshit interviews, but it still pisses me off.
Just a little frustrated right now.
Sorry for the shitty grammar but its LJ and I am not in the mood.

I know your frustration. I think a lot of the problem is the actual job search sites. Even the legit ones like Careerbuilder and Monster allow the "work at home" and "non-traditional job" listings. If a company is not straight up offering employment, they shouldn't be allowed to list on an employment site.

Good luck with your job search. I recently started using snagajob.com. Brian from HMM told me about it. It also has a few of those bullshit jobs listed, but they tend to highlight them to single them out.

#1 That sucks, and I'm sorry to hear that.
#2 This bitching you are doing isn't petty, it's about your livelihood and that has a great effect on your life
#3 Even if it were petty bitching, you kept it small and this is your fucking journal, so if someone doesn't like it, fuck 'em.
