Job Seekers: Beware of Supicious Solicitation

download.pngDear Job Seekers,
There should be a word of caution when applying for jobs, as well as, responses to emails to alert seekers of potential positions.
Here is one I received in my messages telling me about such a position:
Merry-Digital LLC.

First, any professional would understand the need for format when writing their emails, and or other documents of importance. Then it is fair to say that is done by an unprofessional and mostly likely in a hurried and rushed manner, and probably through copy and paste without understanding that sometimes the paste will yield other than the original format and will need to be adjusted. Consequently, that did not happen here not even a name to reply to later, however, the name Linda as a supervisor can be found on the application.
Secondly, when a call came in response to my reply to the original email sent by James I asked if there is a website so that I can research their company. I was given this: www.merrydigital.com. I accessed that site and found vague information on one page with no links to click elsewhere. For example, links providing one with other detail of the business. Hence, there was little to decide if I wanted to send them the application. Consequently, the application is suspicious.
In addition, during my research of the company I did see that the site was created in April 2016, but again–no other information to go by.
