Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

I am writing on behalf of Recruitwise Technology Ltd. to urge you to reject
Employ Media's request for authority to permit second level
registration of strings that do not correspond to an employer's name in the
.jobs sponsored top level domain. My organization would be directly and
adversely affected by this request and therefore opposes the unilateral
expansion of the .jobs charter to encompass regional and industry-specific
second-level registrations.

Since 1993, the community of online employment service companies--job
boards, associations, staffing firms, newspapers and other publications that
job posting and/or resume search databases--has effectively served working
men and women and employers worldwide. These same organizations have also
significantly improved the career prospects of veterans, minorities,
disadvantaged persons and those affected by natural disasters such as
Katrina. They have, in every respect, acted as "the Sources of Success," the
trademark of the International Association of Employment Web Sites
(http://www.employmentwebsites.org), their only industry trade association.

This community is now threatened by the proposed expansion of the .jobs top
level domain (TLD). The charter holder is attempting to extend the
of the TLD from its approved community--direct employers--into the online
employment services community by introducing geocentric (i.e., Atlanta.jobs,
NewYork.jobs, Athens.jobs) and occupation specific (i..e, nurse.jobs,
salesperson.jobs, systemsanalyst.jobs) web sites. It now has a proposal to
implement this plan before the governing board of the Internet Corporation
for Assigned Names & Numbers (ICANN).

This proposal violates both the spirit and the letter of the charter
holder's contract with ICANN. No less important, it will grievously harm the
online employment services community and therefore my organization by
confusing the 
job seekers and employers who have long been the customers of the community.
