I’ve been keeping an eye out for a contract on the (UK IT industry) default standard website Jobserve.
They have a ‘service’ called Alchemy, where they email you details of any jobs they have on their database which are like ones you apply for.
It’s doing my head in!
I’m getting half a dozen emails a day, and there seems to be no way to turn it off. I’ve deleted as much info as I can from their site, if it doesn’t calm down I’ll have to delete my whole profile, or maybe change my email address. They give you the option to pause emails for a day, month or 3 months, but no options to FOAD.
It wouldn’t be so made if it wasn’t so dumb – ‘oh look he once applied for a job in Edinburgh – send him an email about any job in Edinburgh’ SAS? Me?
What a crap design, they have a really intrusive ‘feature’ that you can’t turn off. WTF?
That’s it!, just got another, I have unregistered myself. what a load of rubbish. Its never been this bad when I have used it in the past.
Are you having the same problems?
