Yesterday, I received an incredibly friendly email from an anonymous person who claimed to have read my blog and "loved it." Of course, because my blog is public and anybody can comment anonymously, I was a bit skeptical of this email. Yet, seeing as how this was the first ever "fan mail" I've ever received, I read the email.

It wasn't fan mail, but it was an email from a person who works for a website called "Jooble." Interested by his genuineness and heartfelt compliments of my blog, I took a quick glance at the website. Here's what he had to say about Jooble:
Jooble operates in 45+ countries, so if you would like to find a job in other locations you may try to search jobs in:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Italy, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia , South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey , Venezuela, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States
Jooble is highly recommended as a job search engine to find a job as it has hundreds of web-sites in its search results with all possible types of jobs. We continue expanding our job database and every day Jooble has more than 100,000 of new job adverts.
I was amazed that I had gotten such a request! I had never imagined that my blog would even ever get to the point where people would seek me out for publicity. I guess crazy things do happen when you stick at them long enough.

So, dear readers, if you have some spare time, or are looking for a job, head on over to Jooble. The site is pretty user-friendly and intuitive, which is much more than what I can say for Monster. I haven't used Jooble nor can I say much about its practical use, but judging from the personal and heartfelt email I've received, it cannot be all that bad.

UPDATE 11/26/2011 : I acknowledge the overwhelming evidence of the scam-like qualities in the comments, but I still wouldn't go as far as to call this "spam." While the person may not have actually read any of my posts, it's not as if he wanted my money or asked for a donation. Therefore, I am not going to delete this post, but rather leave it as a warning to those who receive an email from Jooble to be wary.

On a side note, Monster spams my inbox like no other.
