The purpose of
the Job-Hunt.Org Web site is to provide the most comprehensive listing
of employer recruiting page links, the best Internet-accessible legitimate job-search resources and services on
the Web, and the best and most up-to-date advice from genuine job search and career experts. From the beginning in 1998, the focus is on avoiding scams and protecting job seeker privacy.
Since 1998, Job-Hunt.org has been edited by online job search expert Susan P. Joyce, who is the primary writer and link chooser for Job-Hunt.
dedicated to the millions of people who have had their personal
lives disrupted by the loss of a job.
Digital Equipment Corporation ("DEC") layoffs of the
early and mid-1990's, over 80,000 people lost their jobs world-wide.
Thousands who were "right-sized" out of a job found
a very tough job market. In New Hampshire and Massachusetts (near
DEC's headquarters), they faced many employers who would not consider
hiring them because of their DEC experience. The result in several
instances was personal tragedy: homes were lost, marriages broke-up,
and at least three people are known to have committed suicide
with one murder-suicide combination adding an additional victim
to the total tragedy.
We hope that
Job-Hunt can help open doors and provide assistance and hope to
job seekers so that they won't experience the most tragic aspects
of the DEC layoffs.
A job loss
can be a new beginning as well as an ending.

in link exchanges or provide reciprocal links. We do not participate in link exchanges. Selecting and organizing high-quality links
is the reason for Job-Hunt's existence, so we do not link to a
site that links to us for the purpose of getting a link back.
We appreciate in-bound links! However, we link only to sites we
feel offer value to our visitors and that fit appropriately in Job-Hunt. For information on how a site qualifies for a Job-Hunt listing, see the Guidelines for Inclusion.
- Send out e-mail with job offers or offers to sell products or services. We don't send out e-mail with job offers or anything to sell you. If you receive such mail, that appears to be from Job-Hunt, you are receiving mail sent by another party fraudulently pretending to be Job-Hunt.
Job-Hunt Awards and Recognition
Among the many awards, recognition, and quotes about Job-Hunt over the years:
At Job-Hunt, we
feel that we have an unwritten agreement with our visitors to list
only the best job sites we can find. On Job-Hunt, you will find no
work-at-home or make-millions scams, at least not on purpose.
We carefully screen the sites that appear on Job-Hunt, in accordance
with the description above. However, site ownership and/or goals change
over time, and a site may "degrade" (in our opinion) after being added
to Job-Hunt. Hopefully, very infrequently! Sometimes, also, a site
is sold and morphs into an inappropriate or untrustworthy site. So,
to paraphrase a famous saying, "verify before you trust"
when visiting and using a site listed on Job-Hunt. READ the Privacy
Policy before you use any Web site!
