Your email is currently filled with messages from them, but you are still jobless.

You stated the kind of jobs you wanted on the sites, but they keep sending you openings that don’t concern you.

You keep seeing job ads on the sites that literally have no details about the job.

You even went for one of the interviews they sent you, but it turned out to be a scam.
