I think it's good that they do this. You can always say no thanks but it can't hurt you to receive a call from an agency asking if you'd like to try this or that could it?

Normally, if in the very unlikely even you are contacted it will be an UNSUITABLE job on rubbish salary 120 miles away from your home!

Good point I guess I'd never thought of that. I wouldn't be too happy though with an agency hanging on to my CV forever and a day.

I still get calls now from agency's with a CV that was dated 2005.

They obviously skim for the cv's and them add them to there own internal database.
I cant really see the point if you have an active live candidate versus a punt on a 5 yr old cv

seem like a no brainer to me!

Wake up at the back!

The jobs don't exist!  They just want your new UPDATED CV to add to those they have. 
As I have said before they are usually kids that have left a big agency and set up on their own from a room in their house!

However, it is alarming that your CV is out there forever!  And with so many agencies that have it you would never be able to prove who did it  if it was misused.

Lets think now.................

Marketting,  selling the details to other agencies, Identity theft, fraud, etc etc.

Most Cb's have an address, telephone number, e mail address, details of schools, interests etc etc.

Information is power!

I never thought about an agency selling your personal information on to a third party.

Most people's details are worth about 30.  That is name, telephone number and address.  Date of Birth or Age and it is even more.   

You can even sell your own details online if you are daft enough!

Yes I read an item telling people to opt out of details being kept and then sell them themselves.

Can individuals sell information then? I wouldn't know where to go I always assumed these things were sold in bulk from credit card companies or whatever. Not that I want to see my own personal details. Although financially I might need to.

I'd sell. It's probably out there already if companies do it. why not make a bit of cash?

I'll give you a tenner for your credit card number along with the security code.

I joke of course.

Lol.
