Fifty-six percent (56%) of people who responded to the latest unscientific poll at SharylAttkisson.com say they don't know anybody who's gotten a job using an online job site.
But 19% say they personally have gotten a job that way.
Another 21% say they know somebody else who has gotten a job using an online site.
Have you ever gotten a job using an online job site?
21% No, but I know someone who has
56% No, I don't know anyone who has
5% Partly with help of online site
All the jobs I applied for using both zip and indeed were removed. I got email from them stating the companies removed the job with no explanation not did they hire anyone. The jobs listed in both sites are very sketchy. Zip and indeed even send emails stating I'm a good candidate for several jobs, but I lack the required skills listed in job description. Online job apps are the worst. I finally did get a job. I have been researching a lot on both sites and will be doing podcasts soon reporting how bad both sites truly are

Really enjoy your work, always have. I had to leave clouthub too but hope they get it together. Keep up the good work it seems like you are the only true journalist left!
Wow!! I thought I was the only one to think this! My daughter graduated May 2020, after we drove 900 miles & picked her up from a private Christian University in March where she spent the rest of the weeks doing online work to finish up her last year. She has not "walked across the stage" to receive her diploma as of Feb 2021. (Yes, her diploma was sent to her)
BUT, she has spent much time online applying for jobs with no responds from anyone! I realize she didn't have a 4.0 gpa but she was diligent & involved in her University.
