I see this statement all the time. 'We request that you send us $25 to make sure you are a serious applicant.'
Yeah, right! Let me show you the ridiculousness of this statement.
Let's suppose you own a company, BCD Inc. You need an employee. You look at two resumes and competency test scores. One guy really fits the bill. This guy has experience, the skills and
education you need; and in addition, you see from his competency scores, he's fast and accurate too. The other applicant has the skills you require, but he's kinda slow and has a questionable
employment history (actually, he has been fired from his last two jobs). Now BCD Inc., also requires from applicants a 'make sure you're serious fee.'
Now this is the dilemma, what if the first applicant doesn't have the money? What if the second questionable applicant does have the money? Would you hire the questionable guy?
Let me answer for you . . . NO you wouldn't. You would want the better employee that will work fast, do a better job and make you lots of money. You wouldn't care about how much money an employee has to give you, because that is not where your bottom-line - your profits - come from. Your profits will come from competent and fast employees doing the business of the business. Would you actually turn down a great employee just because they don't have an admissions fee? A materials fee? A starting fee?
Yeah, when you look at the telecommuting from the employer's eyes -- all those scamming schemes become real clear don't they?
