RE: Employ Media Proposed TLD Charter Amendment
Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the ICANN Board:
I write on behalf of Hedge Fund and Private Equity Resource Center LLC and 
respectfully request you reject Employ Media's request for authority to permit 
second level registration of addresses that do not reflect an employer's name 
in the .jobs top level domain (TLD).

I believe direct employers (particularly smaller firms like mine) would likely 
be unfairly and adversely affected if this request is approved. As a result, I 
strongly encourage you to deny or delay the proposed unilateral expansion of 
the .jobs domain to encompass regional and industry-specific second-level 
registrations pending a comprehensive impact analysis.
 Employ Media's proposal will greatly and inappropriately extend the 
application of the TLD beyond its approved users--direct employers--to 
encompass online search and staffing organizations by encouraging confusing 
geocentric (i.e.,NewYorkCity.jobs,) and occupation specific (i..e, 
hedgefund.jobs) web sites. ICANN approval of this request would violate both 
the spirit and the letter of the existing charter holder's contract. Moreover 
it will no doubt substantially undermine direct online recruitment efforts of 
firms in my industry by confusing job seekers and thus making employment 
searches more cumbersome, time consuming and far less effective--while creating 
an initially misleading impression of greater clarity and particularity .
