StimulusJobs.net is a new website claiming that it can help people find the 2 million new jobs that have been generated by the government’s American Job Recovery Act, even though it is a private website with no government affiliation.
To begin with Stimulus Jobs, you must input your name and email address, as well as answer a series of questions about information you may be interested in receiving, such as furthering your education.
Once you’ve given this basic contact information to StimulusJobs.net, you have given them information to release your info to third parties who will contact you with special offers and deals based on the information you’ve given them.
As you are filling out your contact information, a screen may appear which asks for your cell phone number in order to continue with the registration process.
If you provide StimulusJobs.net with your cell phone number, you are giving them permission to release that information to third parties as well, including for the purpose of SMS messages. This may cost you money, depending on your cell service.
Ultimately, StimulusJobs.net is not actually a job finder service as much as they are a service intended to capture your contact information and sell it to advertisers. If you are interested in government job information, head to their own site, USAJobs.gov, which is completely free to use.
