This text hit my cell this morning and I have no idea who's behind it. I'd love to know.
I received a message this morning too. Weird. I don't know who it's from--sorry!
I wish I knew too. I hate these anonymous texts!
The only thing I can figure it actually might be is I put my resume up on a few sites this morning. Could it be about that? Facebook made me verify my cell so I'm thinking it may be something similar?
Yeah, but Facebook didn't send you a text anonymously about it. They tell you when you're signing up.
This number is a part of Applicant Services, a new service that matches up job seekers with employment opportunities. We receive resumes of people seeking employment from all over the country. When you call in, we ask you for some basic information -- never your social security number or anything similar -- and match you up with jobs that meet your criteria for employment. We do this as an absolutely free service to job seekers. There will never be any charge, and we will never ask you for any sensitive or billing information.
You need to put something like that in the text to avoid all of the confusion.
Yeah, this is what they did when I called. Just name, number, phone and if I still wanted to be considered for the job which I do. Real quick and painless.
i put resumes out too and got a text from the same number. who's gonna be brave and call it?
I just got a text from this "service" and I am a Recruiter. Any 1st contact should be made via phone or an e-mail with return contact information, not a text. Follow up contact could be done via text but never a 1st contact. The listing here is proof to the fact that it does not work but only creates skepticism. This is not a company looking to hire you, they are not looking to place you, all they are doing is wasting your time and creating false hope. Spread the word and with more awareness hopefully, these types of contacts will become less and less.
I just got the same text from 407-902-3374 saying : "Hi, my name is Anna. I saw your resume online. Call me at 1-877-773-0071 if you are still seeking employment." And I applied for a few jobs two days ago online at Career builder, and was posting my resume on them. But the worst part is, is my number is on the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST. wanted to make sure it wasn't a scam before I replied, think I might give her a call anyways, to tell her to lose my number, and if she contacts me again, whatsoever I will prosecute, beings I am on the list.
I got a text from "Anna" and an email from Rachel Macri, Recruiting Manager with JobNab. This is what the email read:
I saw the resume you recently posted online and noticed that you're looking for something in Administrative Support.
I work with several companies in your area that are trying to fill Administrative Support positions and would like to get your resume in front of them.
All you have to do is visit www.jobnab.com to fill out a short application and I'll contact you.
If you want to call me directly, please do so at 1-877-446-0046, but it helps if you fill out the application first, because it makes the whole process move along faster.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Rachel Macri, Recruiting Manager
7635 Ashley Park Court, Suite 503
Orlando, FL 32835
I filled out the registration and replied to the email letting Rachel know I am awaiting her call. The phone number goes to an automated answerer which directs you to register on the website or hold for an available representative.
They are listed with the BBB as being a held company for three years with no complaints. They are not accredited, but no business is required to be.
I hope this helps. I may post again when I've heard back.
Ok , people. How hard is it to just call the number and find out for your selves?
Calling the number isn't going to kill you.
Calling them won't allow them to force you into giving them some personal information.
You can call, if you're REALLY interested in a job, and determine your self is it is fraudulent or not.
From the looks of it , most of these replies are just people scared to reply, making assumptions.
Call then number for your selves, and leave a report with a first hand experience, not a guess.
I received a text from this number as well. Thank god I looked the number up on google before calling them first! I checked the number from the text and they are located in Florida
I know what the deal is with this number. My guess is that they are a legit company but they make their money in 2 ways. They can place people in jobs and make a commission but that is not their primary source of revenue. They will ask you if you are interested in furthering your education and they make a commision if you talk to one of their partners in the education field. Even if you just say that you are only interested in a fancy certification years down the road they will refer you to get their commision.
Legit, but chances are you won't find a job with them because they make more money pushing education and you will only hear more about whatever education and training course they are partnered with. Hope that clears things up.
so did anyone call this phone #?? If so, what happened??
I also recieved a text from a person named anna saying that if you are looking for a job to call this number. This is stupid
I just got a txt from this number.
I received a text also from 1 877 773 0071 and wondering if legit company;but I found it wierd that send a text than calling. Text message is the following, " Hi, m name is Anna. I saw your resume online. Call me at 1 877 773 0071, if you are seeking employment. I also seeking a job and I think they are preying on job seekers. I will definitly not respond.
Everyone that is calling this number despite the warnings proves that there really are people that are dumb enough to fall for employment scams. Way to go. And even if you think it's not a scam, as I'm sure someone will say, according to previous posters they are "updating" resumes so that companies can blah blah blah. There are people within a company that are hired to do just this; Call and see if the resume is still current. Don't call some random number from "Anna". Only call if they give you information on who they are so you can actually research them to make sure they're legit. Come on people, this is common sense.
Me too...I think it's a scam.
How they explained it to me was that people abandon their resumes online, move on in life literally, and then when they try and contact these people they get a lot of disconnected numbers. So the first step of the process is just making sure that the resume they got was current and that you are still looking for work before they continue with you.
After that they seem to be doing some "matching" thing where they ask you a bunch of questions and then say they will send you to jobs in their system. It sounds like how a recruiter works but they said they aren't a recruiter. I don't know how well it will work.
The only odd thing they asked was if I wanted to further my education. I said no. I just graduated so I'm not really interested in starting that up again.
Why wouldn't the information that I provided be complete and correct? Doesn't make sense.
Same message, saw resume online, call this number if still looking for a job.
What I'd like to add is that if this is similar to a previous one that I got two days ago, they also try and find out if you're interested in furthering your education, and if so you usually get a call mere hours later asking you if you've thought about, or are interested in any other information regarding your education level.
Oh, and I got a text from +1-407-902-3310.
I think the reason why they text you is because if they call they'll probably be in violation of the do-not-call registry.
I'm still on the fence about this.
I don't think so. It played out just like they said. There's not a whole lot they can do with my name and phone number.
Either you're lying, or your business model is fatally flawed, since you enage in behavior that is identical to fraudulent behavior, and no informed person would waste 2 seconds on you.
In any event, if you folded up your little tent and went away NO ONE WOULD MISS YOU! So stop calling!
Whereas this is very good information to help people avoid fraudulent behavior, this does not pertain to us at all. We are not one of the listed companies nor do we ask for any information that can in any way jeopardize your identity.
We work with companies looking for employees who want to verify that all of the contact information on the resumes they've collected are complete and correct. As we said before, we do not collect any sensitive information from the applicants.
We try to make this process as quick and painless as possible. I hope that clears up any misunderstanding.
