Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers


Dear Mr. Chairman,


I am writing on behalf of ExecuNet.com (www.execunet.com)  to urge you
and the Board to reject Employ Media's request for authority to permit
second level registration of strings in the .jobs sponsored top level


While ExecuNet.com would be directly and adversely affected, and as
such, we oppose the unilateral expansion of the .jobs charter, even if a
company such as ours did not feel we would be severely impacted
negatively if this request were approved, we would be opposed to it for
any number of reasons, including but not limited to: the confusion it
would add for both employers and job seekers alike as well as the
obvious risk of it being used to effectively extort money from
legitimate businesses to try to protect what they have worked so hard to


There are already tens of thousands of job sites of one variety or
another, if this proposal is approved it would only add to that number
by the tens of thousands and make it even more convoluted and time
consuming for those seeking jobs as well as dilute the ability of
organizations seeking talent.  It helps neither party.


As to the lure of forcing current sites that operate in the staffing
space to buy .jobs names from Employ Media that temptation should be
obvious and certainly not something ICANN would want to foster.


Thank you for your consideration.
