SEO Job Seekers in India Beware!

Are you looking out for a SEO job? Have you been selected and requested to do an SEO report for their company to analyze your capability and skills? PLEASE STOP!! They are just cheating you.

Recently, a number of companies are asking SEO job seekers to create a detailed report on how SEO can help the company increase product sales and details about how the SEO job seeker would do it. Some even ask the directories where they would submit. Once they get your report, they are done with you. They no longer need you as you have provided them all the information they need to do it themselves.

Below is one such mail from a company called Softbrands in India:

Work on creating a campaign to increase SoftBrands Hospitality online presence, please be specific when it comes to the directories you are referring to

This company wants you to create a campaign and even asks you to provide in detail the directories where you will post. Its high time SEO professionals have to be clever not just in increasing the search rankings but also tackle such mean companies who get all that they want from you for free and just dump you in the end.

Anyone else who experienced the same please do share it with us along with the company details to help the SEO community.

    this cannot be stopped as many desperate job searchers will try to provide as much details to impress the company and get a job

    yes many companies get information from poor job seekers and use the development team to do the work without recruiting an SEO guy.

    never give any report before they give you offer letter.
