REVIEW: Media-Match.com Don’t look for a job here.

Media-Match.com

Ever hear of Media-Match.com?, Is it a scam, the fittings of a really poor business model, or just taking advantage of people?

I’ve recently had the pleasure of checking out this job posting/applying website that seems to cater to the creative, tv industry, and film industry. It’s a gorgeous website, easy to use, and makes it simple to find search, and post jobs, however I didn’t realize what a horrible business model it had until I went to actually apply for a job.

They charge the applicant to apply for a job, just about any person that you talk to will tell you that you should never, ever pay to apply for a job. Most job search websites charge the company, and why do they charge the company? So that there is a legitimacy to the company.

A trickster isn’t going to pay $10 to lure people, but if you take away that fee then nothing is stopping anyone from creating fake jobs that look legit, now I’m not saying that’s what Media-Match is doing, but all sorts of companies and new startups have been known to falsely use databases, create fake job postings, in order to boost subscriptions.

Since the applicant is the one that’s required to pay then the applicant is the one that is screwed over in the end. This company is taking advantage of a down economy, and a extremely difficult job market.

So in my opinion, this website has all the writings of taking advantage of people and you should stay away.

And because I don’t believe that this company should even be able to operate, please check out their competitors who don’t charge the applicant:

Who gave these people money…
