Should I Apply To "Blind" Employment Ads?
I would be very grateful for your professional opinion. Do you feel there is high risk in replying to a blind ad with a Craigslist address?
Many thanks and kind regards,
There are several legitimate reasons a company might choose not to identify themselves in an employment ad, including:
1. They may be replacing someone and don't want that person to know they're getting canned.
Of course, there are also reasons companies or individuals run anonymous ads, including:
1. They already have a bad reputation online and don't want people Googling them before applying.
I would apply for anonymous ads online because many of those ads are completely legitimate. But, as with everything online, always proceed with a great deal of caution.
